Report: There's a New Nexus Phone Coming Later This Month

LG is about to get into the Google Nexus game with a new phone to be released later this month, according to CNET. The as-yet-unnamed phone will bear some similarities to LG's recent Optimus G, but will also pick up some tweaks in order to earn the Nexus name.

According to Modaco, the rumored specs include Qualcomm's Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1280 by 768 IPS display, an 8-megapixel camera, and a non-removable battery. It won't be outfitted with a micro SD port, and instead will come in 8GB and 16GB flavors.

The Nexus S and Galaxy S are Samsung products, while the Nexus 7 tablet is an ASUS joint, and the original Nexus One was from HTC; this is LG's first shot at a piece of the Nexus pie. Hopefully they'll make it count. [CNET]
