LG going head-to-head with Apple by launching Nexus 5 in September

While Samsung played it safe, LG's not as reticent

While Samsung launched the Note 5 early so as not to have Apple steal its thunder, LG isn't worried. The latest buzz on the ground is that it's launching the LG Google Nexus 5 in September, the same month the new iPhones are being announced.

LG's not crazy enough to launch it around the same time that Apple is announcing its phones (Sept 9) but is apparently waiting for the end of the month, around Sept 29.

What's rumoured so far is that the new phone will have Android M out of the box, use a 13MP rear camera and a 5.2-inch display. As to the RAM, it looks like it'll have 3GB at least and possibly use a Type-C connector.

Stock Android purists will likely be saving up their money for this one. Let's hope it's nowhere near as expensive as Samsung flagships.
