news Korean electronics manufacturer LG and local telco Telstra have announced they will mark up Google’s Nexus 5 smartphone by $300 when customers buying the flagship model pay for it outright, in a move which will see the unit’s overall price increase by around 75 percent compared with its existing price through Google’s Play Store.
The device will be the first to run the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Android 4.4 (KitKat), and in Google’s Nexus tradition will run a stock version of Android unencumbered by the software add-ons so loved by manufacturers such as Samsung and HTC.
The smartphone will feature a “stunning 5 inch full HD IPS display” at 1920 by 1080 pixels, LG and Google said in a statement this morning. It will run on a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Krait processor, come with 2GB of RAM, an eight megapixel rear camera with LG’s optical image stabiliiser technology, and with either 16GB or 32 of on-board storage. It will weigh 130g, come in black or white and support the 4G mobile broadband speeds available in Australia via the 1800Mhz networks of Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. Continue…
