Its definitely Nexus 5 because LG never makes their phones without capacitive buttons, Except for Nexus 4
and for this one(Nexus 5).

LOL, every month there is something more powerful coming out.

I'm loving it! Just wait till ARM A57 shows up with PowerVR Rogue chip. I bet in 3 years smartphone game graphics will blow away XBOX and PS3 graphics.

The iPhone really did start a mobile and touch revolution and lit a fire in smartphone competition. On the other end ARM forced even Intel to think about efficiency while delivering power.

Enjoy it folks! There is another rapid progression evolution happening, from laptops to phones. In 2025 your phone will replace your laptop for real.

Most probably Nexus or something similar, the Optimus G2 is said to use LGs own chip....

I doubt if LG will be the maker of the next Nexus phone. There is a greater chance that this monster with a Snapdragon 800 is one of the next Optimus devices from LG. Remember that Google is about to release a phone alongside Motorola (x phone) which might be the next Nexus device for this year?! I wish though that LG should release the beast ASAP coz there might be a chance that other OEMs will produce their devices with Snapdragon 800! What's wrong with their strategy is that they make a high end device and use features that are about to be outdone by other OEMs like the Snapdragon 600 in Optimus G Pro's case. If only they didn't announce the G Pro yet and made sure that the Snapdragon 800 is already available to use and buy from Qualcomm then they could have saved their a$$ from producing a high end device that will soon be replaced by another one from their company. They should strategize like Samsung and Apple who make one flagship phone in a year and focus on it. HTC, LG and Sony are all having a hard time due to the fact that they produce a lot of flagship devices every year but to be honest, these 3 can outdo Sammy and Apple if only they think about what they're doing thoroughly up to the small details. Heard that Sony Togari is on its way too using a Snapdragon 800! At least Sony might not be using a Snapdragon 600 for their upcoming flagship phone so from S4 Pro used on the Z they will be making a significant change to Snapdragon 800. LG, learn from other OEMs and I know you will make it big! Good luck!

The amalgamation of fair price and excellent hardware always presents LG's gadgets attempting choices.
And now based on the software optimus g pro equipped with, it's obvious that LG gradually understands how to play this important card.

Rumors suggest that iPad (5 generation) will be released in April And it will blow everything out of playground propably even before this will be released.

"Tablet is not directly comparable to smaller chips found in smartphones"
Really ? What about SGS 4 ? What tablet got Exynos 5 octa or other 8-core chip ?
