The latest FCC documents show that the LG D820 handset will come with 3GPP/3GPP2 wireless connectivity. The documents also include the availability of other wireless connections in the handset:
- GSM 850/1900
- W-CDMA 1900/2100+1700/850 (band 2, 4, 5)
- CDMA1X/EV-DO 850/1900/800 (band class 0, 1, 10)
- LTE 2100+1700/850/700/1900/800 (band 4, 5, 17, 25, 26)
- TD-LTE 2600 (band 41)
The device is believed to cover major areas of North America, based on the network connectivity gamut, according to S4gru. This would further give some room to speculations that the handset will first arrive in North America.
The expected LG Nexus handset will also reportedly include wireless charging technology along with the latest low power consuming Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 2.4GHz (802.11 b/g/n/ac) 5GHz (802.11 a/n/ac)
Few more details spotted in the FCC documents reveal the presence of firmware M8974A under the software version - aosp_hammerhead-userdebugKyeLimePieFACTORYeng.sangjoon84.lee.20130618.01515, which hints the device to run on the latest Snapdragon 800 SoC. The handset model may run on the Android KitKat (KeyLimePie) OS unveiled recently.
Another document revealed from Anandtech hints that the LG Nexus device will feature a 5in display (126 mm) as the device comes with a 131.9 mm X 68.2 mm (Lenght X Width) dimensions. The LG handset is also tipped to be powered by a 2300mAh Lithium-ion Polymer battery embedded into the device.
The price of the handset has however been kept under wraps and the launch date too is unknown. The expected LG Nexus 5 might be announced soon as the price of Nexus 4 has been slashed from £239 to £159, for the 8GB model. This step might have been taken to clear the shelves for its next iteration, reports PC Advisor.
