LG D820 Could Be G2's CDMA Variant While LG-D821 Could Be Nexus Successor

LG D820 Could Be G2's CDMA Variant

We have been hearing rumours for quite some time that LG will be the official Nexus manufacturer for a second year in a row.

Recently, an alleged LG branded device with model number D820 popped up at the FCC website and appeared to have the same dimensions as the mysterious Nexus smartphone that was spotted in the Android KitKat video released by Google.

Some fine points exposed by the LG D820′s FCC listing include the firmware M8974A running on the device and the software version listed as, “aosp_hammerhead-userdebug KyeLimePieFACTORY eng.sangjoon84.lee.20130618.015154.” The device is expected to come with connectivity options like GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and various LTE bands, as per the listing.

However, @evleaks is the latest to suggest that the rumoured LG D820 is just a CDMA variant of the flagship, the G2 and is not a Nexus successor. The tweet said, "Sorry Nexus fans: LG D820 is just a CDMA G2 variant." The tweet by the notorious phone leaker clears the doubt about a possible Nexus 4 successor being spotted at various certification sites. However, the serial leaker has not mentioned anything about the Nexus 4 successor.

Earlier on Monday, another LG branded device popped up, this time on the Bluetooth SIG website. The listing revealed a device with model number LG-D821 which LTE enabled device. The SIG listing unfortunately did not offer anything new and doesn't shed any light on the internals of the device.

The model number LG-D821 seen in a recent Bluetooth SIG filing may be the Nexus 5

Previously, a Vietnamese site, Tinhte.vn claimed that the next Nexus smartphone - called Nexus 5 - will be based on the LG G2, though it obviously would not be an exact copy.

The alleged Nexus 5 has been rumoured to sport a 5.2-inch show just like the LG G2 and also come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processorclocked at 2.3GHz and 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The alleged Nexus successor can be expected to run the latest Android OS, the KitKat (Android 4.4) which might be launched with the device.But, there’s no word on when the next Nexus phone will be launched, though it is
expected to be unveiled within the next couple of months.
