Google I/O presents the LG Nexus 4 with 32GB and LTE. No Nexus 5?

We've been hearing about the Nexus 5 for quite some time now. With Google's upcoming I/O Conference for developers going from May 15th to the 17th, a new angle has emerged on how Android 5.0 might be presented to the world. Instead of Google's Nexus 5, the LG Nexus 4 might be getting a face-lift.

Back in March, we conjured up our own ideas of how the Nexus 5 would look and one of its characteristics would be the new Android 5.0 operating system. This came out amongst a plethora of rumors circulating the internet about the Nexus 5, some mistaking it for the first signs of the new Motorola X Phone or the HTC First. Since the LG Nexus 4 only came out in November, it seems too soon to launch the Nexus 5 during the I/O conference. That being said, the latest rumors say that LG will be coming out with a 32 GB version of the Nexus 4, which will now be boasting LTE and CDMA bands. What's more, there has been whispers about it being compatible for CDMA with Sprint and Verizon.

If in fact the Nexus 5 isn't being presented, then it looks like the new operating system Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie could be running on the new and improved version of the LG Nexus 4.

These allegations seem more realistic than a Google Nexus 5 launch, which should probably appear in November this year. As Google's conference approaches, it's seems probable that more rumors or leaks will be exposed on the matter.

What do you think? Will we be seeing the Nexus 5 earlier than expected or will the LG Nexus 4 be getting a well-needed facelift?

    an improved Nexus 4 from LG with Android OS 5.0 (with LTE and CDMA bands) sounds like something which could be quickly introduced in 2013 .... I am left wondering if Google will turn to Motorola (which it owns) later in the year to introduce a Nexus 5 Phablet (we'll know more in May) ....


    Meanwhile, this LG SPIRIT 4G lte from Metro PCS rocks ! :-)

    Very interesting facelift now being made by LG, the Samsung version wasn't as good. The N4 is fastest in the market -Snapdragon S4 Pro processor-, the glass cover, and 8 megapixel camera are interesting features. The full specs http://www.bell.ca/Mobility/Products/LG-Nexus-4
