Back to a few days ago we’ve heard about a new Nexus Phone that this time will be made by LG, and that will be based on LG’s latest flagship the Optimus G.
The rumor mill seems to be true (or untill now it goes to have a confirmation soon, or not). According to the latest reports of an XDA-Developers forum goer has posted a collection of photos for the E960, which appears to be a variant of the Optimus G — until you realize that it’s using software navigation keys, doesn’t quite resemble the international or AT&T Optimus G models and is oddly badged as the “Full JellyBean on Mako”.
According to the NenaMark2 benchmark score uploaded on the Nena Innovation AB website, the LG device has a display resolution of 1280 x 768 (it shows up as 1196 because of the space taken up by the navigations keys). It also has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with Adreno 320 GPU, which means it is the same APQ8064 found on the Optimus G.
That’s all we can say for now. We are definitely hoping to see more of this phone in the coming weeks and learn more about it, especially on what’s ticking inside that sleek body.
And we’re quite sure that we’ll hear more about it until Google or LG confirms it.

Reportedly, One lucky customer in Japan claims to have unexpectedly received a Google Nexus 7 loaded with more built-in storage with 32GB instead of the 16GB unit that was ordered. In top of that Google’s Jelly Bean-packing the new slate. Upon booting up his brand new Nexus 7 16GB model, the Japanese customer found out from the Settings menu that his model actually has 27GB of available storage.
The 32GB version of the Google Nexus 7 was first hinted in a listing of a major retailer, but now we have a solid evidence of the device’s existence.

A rumor about an Google Nexus Phone made by LG has been surfaced. A tipster has contacted AndroidAndMe to give it a first hand account of what the LG-made Nexus is like.
Reportedly looks like about the same (in about the same size) as the current Galaxy Nexus phone. There’s a silver band running around the perimeter of the phone, similar to that of the iPhone 3G and a Nexus logo on the back similar to the Nexus 7 (with the “x” styled to look like the four-colored Nexus logo).
The tipster claims that the LG Nexus is running Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie, which at the moment is hard to distinguish from 4.1 JB . AndroidAndMe was also sent an 8MP photo with the appropriate EXIF data, though they couldn’t share it “due to the nature of the photo”. Still, the photo points to the LG Optimus Nexus using the 8MP version of the Optimus G camera (as opposed to the 13MP one).
All that is far from confirmed but the rumor mill is really insistent that LG will be making the next Nexus phone. We also heard that “Nexus” phones might be built by multiple makers, so the LG Nexus might not be the next Nexus phone, just one of a generation of Nexus phones.

Pantech announced the Vega R3 is phablet to come join the Samsung Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus Vu market, a market that we see it grows a bit after bit.
The phoneblet features a 5.3-inch Natural IPS Pro LCD screen of 720p resolution and Qualcomm’s monster Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.
Pantech is the latest company to develop a dislike for bezels and the Vega R3 features “Zero Bezel Tech”. It keeps the phone compact and “provides optimum grip for a typical Korean hand.” The phoneblet is 9.95mm thick and weighs 169g.
The Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset is one of the headline-grabbing features of the Pantech Vega R3. It packs four Krait CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. It should readily tackle Samsung Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus Vu.
There are only two other mobile devices that use the S4 Pro chipset – the LG Optimus G and the Xiaomi Mi-Two.
The camera on the back of the Vega R3 does 13MP stills and features “Best Face” functionality – the now familiar Scalado-like approach of taking multiple shots and combining the best facial expression for each person into a single photo.
The phoneblet also packs extensive connectivity features – LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s a microSD card to expand the built-in memory.
The battery that powers the chipset and the big screen is a 2,600mAh “super battery pack”, which promises 14 hours and 30 minutes of talk time. Charging the battery back up will be pretty quick too, with the 2A charger – it takes about 100 minutes according to Pantech. It’s a 2 port charger too, so you can plug in the phone along with a spare battery.
The Pantech Vega R3 is available through the three South Korean carriers starting today. It’s launching with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich but a Jelly Bean update is in the cards too.
