Specifications have appeared on-line for an LG-made model of Google’s future Nexus 5 smartphone, presently operating beneath the codename Megalodon. Google is reportedly aiming to launch its Nexus 4 in October.
The Google Nexus smartphone line is well known within the market for releasing devices with the same branding but made by different manufacturers. The Nexus 4 is made to Google’s specification by LG, whereas the last-generation Nexus S was designed by Samsung. Even the company’s tablet will be produced alternative corporations, with Asus building the popular Nexus 7.
However, an anonymous source claims that the manufacturer for the Nexus 5 smartphone has yet to be chosen, the specifications are already set in stone – and if the high-end Samsung Galaxy S4 seems to dominate the Nexus 4 in terms of specs, the Nexus 5 might very well turn the tables.

Thus far, neither Google nor LG has offered to discuss the device, and the use of OLED screen technology, while LG usually uses LCD, triggers a warning signal – but it might actually be a direction that Google is seriously considering for it’s next generation Nexus smartphone.
