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.
