Belarussian consumer site Onliner claims to have had a hands-on with the high-end smartphone, rumoured to be codenamed ‘Mako’.
While both Samsung and HTC have been named as possible manufacturers of the new Nexus handset, it was earlier this week that LG’s name was added to the hat, with some details of the device’s specs finding their way onto the web.
Along with several images, Onliner has listed even more details about the rumoured smartphone, suggesting that it will have a quad-core, Qualcomm chipset and 2GB of RAM along with a 4.7-inch, 768×1280 pixels display.
All of these point towards what could prove to be a powerful handset, the only disappointment being the reported 8GB of internal storage and no support for a microSD card.
Google’s Nexus project, which sees devices running stock Android software with no manufacturer alterations, has also found recent success with the 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet, manufactured by Taiwanese firm Asus on behalf of the search giant.
