With the ‘About Phone’ screen up and open, there was some pretty good information that can be put together about the device. First off, Android 4.1.2. Even though many think that can’t be true because the next Nexus should be 4.2. While it is still possible for Google to be bringing Key Lime Pie or Kandy Kane or what ever it will eventually land as, 4.1.2 is the most recent build by Google. They even just released it to AOSP this morning. So this makes the LG Nexus quite a bit more plausible. Add in the code name of Mako and there is more goodness to be had. with the help of Nenamark, Android&Me were able to find the devices code name and some of its internal workings. Currently showing up with the Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core S4 Pro processor and Adreno 320 GPU.
So now what? That is a great question. All signs point to an LG Nexus device on its way. Will it be the only Nexus this year though, or will the other OEM’s and Google be putting out multiple devices as previously thought? LG has always made some pretty great hardware, but their software kept them from making an impact in the Android community like Samsung. With a pure stock Google Android experience loaded to hardware that looks like the Optimus G, it is hard to not think this is full of win.
