LG Denies Involvement in Google Nexus 5

Smartphone manufacturer and Google partner LG has denied its involvement in the rumored Nexus 5 smartphone.

Calling the reports as "unfounded", an unnamed LG spokesperson told Korean website Chosun Biz that the speculation isn't true. The firm also discussed the delays surrounding the in-demand Nexus 4.

Although Google blamed LG on the lack of inventory for the Nexus 4, the spokesperson claimed that no such delays existed at LG's end.

As for the Google Nexus 5 itself, it's rumored to feature a quad-core processor and a 1080p display. It's apparently scheduled for a release before the end of the year, while a tablet is also said to be in existence in the form of the Google Nexus 7.7.

Based on its name, the latter is expected to have a 7.7-inch display, which is said to be full HD. Powering the device is purportedly a Tegra 4 quad-core chip and 2 GB of RAM.

    While I hate LG and Google equally for denying me a Nexus 4, I think it's fair to assume that LG are meeting their requirements and the real problem is Google keep giving the bloody phones to the stupid effing carriers who then whack them up for sale on contracts with other flagship phones for ridiculous margins.

    Unless I'm missing something and carriers actually pay more for each phone than Google sells it through the Play store, carriers are making a killing selling contracts with the N4's we were all waiting to buy from Google.
