It seems that LG has hooked up with Google, and will push out a Nexus branded Android smartphone before too long – or that’s the rumour.

In fact, CNet reckons that LG’s Nexus handset will be based fairly closely on the firm’s Optimus G phone, and will be revealed at the end of October.

As we discussed in an article last month, the Optimus G has a Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, and has a 4.7 inch WXGA (1280 x 768 pixels) True HD IPSPlus display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, plus 4G LTE support. It also has a 13-megapixel camera.

That spec has been adjusted to fit with the Nexus program, CNet notes, although the above goodies should remain the largely same – aside from the camera which is rumoured to have been dropped to an 8-megapixel affair. It also isn’t clear whether LTE will be on board.

Being a Nexus, it will of course be powered by the latest version of Android, which will be Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).

The Nexus name could be a much needed boost for LG, which has been struggling against the likes of Samsung and HTC in the Android arena. Samsung has made the last two Nexus handsets.
