With the launch of the Google Nexus 4 back in 2012, we can only assume that 2013 will introduce none other than the Nexus 5, or whatever Google decides to name it. The specifications of such a device remain unknown, but according to the folks at Android and Me, they claim to have gotten a tip from an anonymous source that reveals the specs for a contender for the Nexus 5 title. As you might know, Google does not have a set manufacturer for their Nexus series of devices, usually pitting manufacturers against each other to produce a product that could be worth their consideration.

So far it seems that LG has made a prototype called the Megalodon and its rumored specs include a 5.2” OLED Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of storage, a 16MP camera, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, a massive 3,300mAh battery, LTE connectivity, front stereo speakers and we can only assume it will be running the latest version of Android. Some of the specs seem a little “out there” and feels more like wishful thinking rather than a logical deduction, but since these are rumors, we can’t put too much credit into them, at least not for the moment.

At the same time we wouldn’t be surprised if there are manufacturers out there who are busy working on prototypes to show Google, so at the very least that part isn’t a stretch of the imagination. We advise you to take this with massive amounts of salt for now, but in the meantime what sort of specs do you think the next-gen Nexus could be sporting?
