    LG Nexus 5 passes FCC with multiple LTE bands

    This will be one sweet phone to have on AT&T GoPhone when it gets released, probably in November.

    Unlocked, no contract, pentaband HSPA+, multiple LTE bands (including those for AT&T, T-mobile, Sprint).

    Snapdragon 800, 4.96" full HD 1080p display, but SMALLER overall dimensions than last year's 4.7" 720p Nexus 4.

    * Nexus 5, 5": 131.9mm and 68.2mm
    * Nexus 4, 4.7": 133.9mm x 68.7mm


    Passed FCC.

    Specs below, from the FCC.

    Great info - thanks! Looks like the Nexus 5 is going to be sweeter than sweet, especially with LTE enabled for multiple carriers.

    Last two years, the Nexus phones were "announced" in October, actually available for sale in November.

    Also, usually two price points -- $299/$349 depending on internal memory. That is OFF CONTRACT price. No guarantees for pricing this year, but I imagine they will want to keep it about the same.

    Excellent! I, too, use a Galaxy Nexus on ST w/the AT&T SIM. I just bought an 8GB Nexus 4 for $200 - price was too good to pass up. The Nexus 5 might make it 3 Nexus phones I own.

    Does the five have the soft key at the bottom of the screen that take away from your screen size. Never liked it on the four.

    Google has been using the softkeys for a while. It allows for a larger screen when watching video as the hardware key is ALWAYS there. The softkeys disappear, when not needing navigation.

    Also this is a 4.96" 1080p vs 4.7" 720p display(on the Nexus 4). Even if it does have the softkeys, you still get more screen vs the Nexus 4.

    When the Nexus 4 price dropped, I didn't even flinch. I'm waiting for the Nexus 5. Two Nexus 5s, to be specific -- to replace our two Galaxy Nexus. At that point, I'll be coming to GoPhone and dropping Straight Talk. Coincidentally my multi-month prepaid with Straight Talk will be expiring about the same time.

    I'm stoked about this - getting away from the atrocious pentile screen and incredibly terrible battery life on the Gnexus. I still don't get people who do the old contract route. It costs the same upfront (or more, many are $299 plus tax on the 'full' amount, plus 'activation fee', plus 'whatever' fees). Then, you are paying significantly more per month for a non-existant subsidy for all intents and purposes. I tell people prepaid saves upfront and every month - they then get worried about having to pay ahead of time or some other imagined excuse. It's sad but funny at the same time.

    Nexus devices have not only proven what a baseline experience should be like, it has shown the true price of a cell phone. Cell phones are a commodity item now - the price should be accordingly. You don't see huge profit margins on peaches, batteries, or a stapler.

    What's super interesting is this has all the necessary hardware for Sprint - yet buying an unlocked device directly from the source has never come to fruition with CDMA. Sprint being even more of a surprise due to the fact they make you sign a new contract if you come to postpaid with your own device. I know Google and VZW supposedly don't get along with the Nexus device being a big factor. Yet, Motorola continues to be in bed mostly with VZW even though a stronger focus on GSM is needed.

    You're making me re-think my buying an N4.

    Had enough of ST? Are you also considering Aio in addition to GoPhone?

    No AIO once I learned top LTE speeds on that service were capped at 8mbps. GoPhone has same AT&T LTE at uncapped speeds, typically 16 - 20 mbps.

    Gotcha on Aio. There are several posts here today complaining about Aio's speeds. I guess the old saying still is true: "You get what you pay for". I'm sticking with ST now rather than switch to Aio. GoPhone would be the route I go if/when I switch though.

    Thanks for the info.

    I want it and I want it now! Wonder if the price point(s) will be the same?

    Remember, this is UNCOMFIRMED.... At this point it is pure speculation, like all the other Nexus 5 rumors.

    All we really know is that LG has a new phone coming out called the LG-D820....

    There's always someone like you in the crowd who can't read.

    It IS confirmed.
    Google leaked the video, which matches the FCC pictures perfectly. Guess you missed that part, eh?

    Also, there's NO LG-branded phone coming to market right now with Snapdragon 800, pentaband HSPA+ and multiple LTE bands -- since their flagship LG G2 just got released and is actually only available this week in the USA. Guess you forgot about that, or didn't pay attention? You don't really know much about the cell phone industry, do you?

    • I've been tracking this story since last May when Google CEO Larry Page went to LG HQ in South Korea and was shown a prototype by the LG CEo. Leaked by LG to Korean Times newspapger. Other LG leaks followed.

    • Then in July, a month before the G2 was "announced", Korean media outlet Daum got hold of the LG G2 specs -- which were ON THE MONEY -- and in that same report the LG source confirmed the dual development of the G2/Nexus 5.

    • Last month sources in LG's Vietnamese factories triple confirmed LG was making the Nexus 5.

    • And 2 days ago Google leaked video of the Nexus 5 -- with PROMINENT LG LOGO.

    • And now yesterday FCC confirms it was that same phone, because the pictures match. And provides specs.

    • OH, one more item to nail the coffin shut. The software it was running at the FCC? Build number “aosp_hammerhead-userdebugKyeLimePieFACTORYeng.sangjoon84.lee.20130618.015154.”

      That was the internal code name for 4.4, until Google officially named it KitKat. No LG-branded phone is going to be running any software even code named "Key Lime Pie".

      Also, note the "hammerhead" reference? Nexus 4 was "Mako" -- another shark. Nexus 5 will be Hammerhead.


    Off you go now, to troll elsewhere.


    Or maybe you are just mad because you were one of the silly people who bought the mediocre midrange 720p 4.7" Moto X with last year's specs? This 5" full HD 1080p Nexus 5 is going to beat the off contract price of the Moto X ($600) by $250 -- as well as smoke it in every benchmark with the screamin' Snapdragon 800. Guess there's a sucker born every minute.

    Nexus 5 FCC docs reveal Snapdragon 800 processor, 4.96-inch display




    The mysteries of Google’s upcoming Nexus 5 continue to unravel. FCC documents have spilled more than just the details of its radio — we now know how big its screen is and which SoC is running the show.

    As it did with the Nexus 4, LG has opted to use a Snapdragon processor in the Nexus 5. This time around, it’s the blazing-fast Snapdragon 800, though we don’t yet know what speed LG has tuned the internal clock to (previous rumors have pegged it as high as 2.3GHz). That means it’s going to be faster than its predecessor, and it’s also going to be larger. LG has bumped the display up from 4.7 to 4.96 inches — which works nicely with the Nexus 5 moniker.

    AnandTech’s Brian Klug also discovered that the Nexus 5 measures 131.9mm tall and 68.2mm wide. That’s two whole millimeters shorter than the Nexus 4 and half a millimeter narrower, so LG’s focused some effort on trimming down the bezel in its second Nexus device.


    (Top pic: Nexus 5 as leaked by Google. Note the outside view of the large camera lens
    Bottom pic: Now compare the INSIDE view of Nexus 5 as leaked by the FCC. Note it matches what would be the INSIDE view if you took the back off, with the same large camera aperture. Just mentally flip the cover up.)



    What else do we already know about the Nexus 5? It’s also going to ship with Qi-compatible inductive charging capabilities and NFC support. The FCC filing also notes that the Nexus 5 will indeed support LTE.

    It won’t just be fast on your carrier’s airwaves, either. If you’ve already upgraded your home wireless network to 802.11ac, the Nexus 5 is ready to take full advantage (just like the Galaxy S4 and HTC One). We also know that it’s launching with Android 4.4 KitKat and that you’ll be able to win one as part of a cross-promotion.

    Last but not least, we know Google is sending product specialists to Best Buy stores across the U.S. ahead of the holiday shopping rush. While they’ll no doubt be able to extol the virtues of any old Android phone, they may be putting a little extra effort into pushing the Nexus 5.
