There have been various rumours about LG working on the successor to the popular smartphone Nexus 4. Then again, it's a subject of speculation, as some say yes, the company is working on the Nexus 5 and some say no. So what is the truth, is this device going to come any time soon?
LG's VP Won Kim in a interview with allaboutphones said that the company does not have the Nexus 5 in production. However, LG says that his words have been misinterpreted, he never really denied that the Nexus 5 was in work, but rather he just spoke about how Nexus 4 received a lot of help from marketing. With the success the device has received, there wont be a requirement for such a marketing support for the other phones to come.
According to popular Korean site Daum.net, the Nexus 4, since it was released back in November 2012 has sold more then 3 million units. The handset has faced issues with shortage of stocks and also has not sold well in Korea as it lacks LTE connectivity. Considering all the odds, it is still one of the most successful devices out there.
Daum reports that LG apparently has already presented Nexus 5 device, presumably a prototype to Google's CEO Larry Page, last month.
Whatever it is, since there is news that the Nexus 4 will be getting a Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update soon, there is a good chance that it's successor will run on the elusive Key Lime Pie OS. Then again chances of the new operating system being released this year are slimming, so does this mean that the new device could only be launched next year, along with Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie)?
