The LG Nexus 5 has made an recent appearance at Anatel, Brazil’s national telecommunications agency. Anatel is the equivalent of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in said country. Thus, the LG Nexus 5 listing is believed to be hinting at the impending arrival of the device in Brazil.
LG Nexus 5 D821
The device specified in the Anatel document has the product code LG D821. The same product code was spotted earlier this month on Bluetooth SIG. Back then, however, it had been unclear whether the LG D821 is a variant of the Nexus 5, or of the LG G2. What made things confusing was that prior to the LG D821 leak, FCC documents for the LG D820, the product code for a device that had been believed to be the Nexus 5, also surfaced. The LG D820, as per said documents, supported A&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint bands.
This time, however, the photo of the LG D821 that comes with the device documents shows the Nexus branding, although it is partially obscured by a sticker. This shows that the LG D821 is potentially the Nexus 5, or a variant thereof, instead of being a variant of the LG G2. Supporting this claim is the fact that the LG G2 has the product code D802, which is very different from D821 or D820.
LG Nexus 5 D821 in Brazil
Phandroid points out that the upcoming arrival of the Nexus 5 in Brazil is significant. This is because in the past, consumers in such country needed to wait for a considerable amount of time before Nexus devices were released there.
Also, the appearance of the LG Nexus 5 in Brazil could mean that the smartphone is slated for launching in different countries. As a market, Phandroid says that Brazil is important since it is becoming the fifth largest smartphone market in the world.
The Anatel document appears to skip divulging details about the specifications of the LG-DG821. Previous rumors and leaks have suggested, however, that the device will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Soc and a full HD display.
