An LG executive speaking at a product launch event for the Optimus Vu confirmed LG’s involvement in the debut of Google’s upcoming Nexus phone next week. Amit Gujral, head of Mobile Product Planning for LG in India, told IBNLive that we can expect to see the LG Nexus unveiled at the event in New York City. He also revealed that the phone would be available in India by the end of November.
Gujral’s confirmed many of the handset’s rumored specs, including a 4.7-inch display, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and Android 4.2. He did not provide any clues as to the final name for the device, leaving that facet of the new Nexus launch a mystery for now.
The October 29th event looks to be a big day for the Nexus line, with new rumors emerging claiming we could also see a new 10-inch Nexus tablet that day as well as a 3G-enabled Nexus 7 featuring 32GB of storage. Other speculation has pointed towards multiple new Nexus smartphones, though LG’s handset has been the only to produce any tangible evidence of existence so far.
