LG Nexus Optimus G Release Date Set For October 29th, Writes Le Figaro

Google and LG have already set the next-gen Nexus release date and, according to Le Figaro, it will land on the same day Microsoft will officially launch the new Windows Phone 8: October 29th. The French publication didn’t talk about the release date, but it mentioned that the smartphone might land in France sometime in December.

According to the information unveiled by the established publication, the LG Nexus Optimus G (or LG Nexus 4) terminal is already starting to be listed by the retail stores, which indicates that both the search engine giant and the Taiwan-based phone maker are aiming to make it available for purchase soon after the official launch event.

Meanwhile, other sources announce that the new LG Nexus Optimus G will hit the North American market mid Novemeber, about two weeks after the launch event scheduled by Google and LG for October 29th.

LG Nexus Optimus G would be the fourth generation of Nexus devices after Nexus One, Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. The first Nexus smartphone was manufactured by HTC, then Samsung took the wheel and developed the next two generation of Android dev phones.

The rumor mill speculates that the Nexus smartphone developed by LG will be underpinned by Optimus G’s hardware platform. If so then the LG Nexus Optimus G would pack a 4.7-inch True HD-IPS + LCD display with a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels, 2 GB of RAm and an 8 megapixel camera. The chipset powering the Nexus Optimus G would be a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, based on four Krait cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU.

The new LG Nexus smartphone will most likely run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, the minor firmware update that is already available for the owners of the Google Nexus 7 tablets.

The Nexus smartphone co-developed by Google and LG would be the second Nexus gadget launched by the Mountain View-based giant this year, after the Nexus 7 tablet unveiled earlier this year.
