The LG Nexus 5 specs were leaked this week under the code name Megalodon.
This device could end up being the successor to the wildly popular LG Nexus 4 as it comes with top-of-the-line features.
The leaked specs for the smartphone included a 5.2-inch OLED Display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, and a 3300 mAh Lithium battery.
Other features include gesture like controls and integrated DVB-T along with LTE connectivity which was not available on the LG Nexus 4.
Specs for another 5-inch LG device also leaked this week. That handset will come with 2GB RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and the NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip.
The company appears to be focused on competing with companies such as Samsung who launched its Galaxy S4 earlier this week. LG could be one step a head with an accessory it released for the Nexus 4.
The company launched a new smaller wireless charger that is compatible with the Nexus 4 last month.
The new device, the WCP-300, is only 6.9cm in diameter and is designed to be portable. And even with its smaller size, the charging area is 1.7 times wider than it is on LG's previous wireless charger. It is also compatible with a standard 5-pin micro-USB charger, which provides the highest level of charging performance and user convenience.
"Wireless charging is the holy grail of smartphone user convenience," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "With the WCP-300, LG was able to deliver both portability with top-class charging capabilities in a device no larger than a typical beverage coaster."
The WCP-300 is compatible with both the Nexus 4 and the LG Spectrum 2 out of the box in the U.S. market. Other smartphones require the purchase of a special case in order to be charged wirelessly. LG hopes to assist in making wireless charging the industry standard by having the feature built in to most of its future devices.
