It’s not quite the next rumoured pure Google variant after the Galaxy Nexus, but the full manufacturer version currently called the LG Optimus G which you can now see on YouTube. There’s an almost marmite-level contrast of opinions on this phone from our team.
Some of our team have stated they’re unimpressed by the design (you can listen in the latest coolsmartphone podcast). Others feel like the specs (including the Snapdragon S4 pro) being the still-not-confirmed new possible Nexus device up to par with the best coming out later this year. There’s no confirmation that the Optimus Nexus will break out from the rest of the Android pack and supply the 13 megapixel camera in its Sprint and Korean versions or that it will have the 8 megapixel version. Thoughts are they’ll stay with the smaller sized camera module to avoid the unsightly bump.
The parts that aren’t likely to change are the integrated glass touchscreen which should make the phone that fraction bit slimmer, the 2100 mAh battery, and the QSlide functionality which allows you to check two apps out on the same screen. It’s a bit hard to describe, but it’s a bit more like picture over picture than picture in picture. Its been noted that the app won’t work with YouTube other other apps for video, but it does function inside its own Gallery app. Since QSlide is not part of the default Google Experience, the likelihood is that that functionality won’t come installed as standard. Whatever does ship, they’ll all come with a 320ppi display that we’re eager to use in day-to-day use. It’ll clock in at a relatively svelte 132.4 x 68.1 x 8.9 mm, and the 12-core NVIDIA GPU is nothing to sniff at to take advantage of the 1920 x 720 pixel screen. One thing to note is that although the Korean product page states it will get an fm radio, its been a relative rarity in the UK, so we’ll see if that makes it to our shores.
The full breakdown of LG’s product page is below, but bear in mind the translation may leave a little to be desired. When we find out which networks are stocking the non-nexus variant, you’ll be the first to know. One thing is for sure: EE won’t be stocking it as it won’t run on the 1800 MHz LTE band.
