Anxious Android fans still can’t manage to get their hands on a Nexus 4, but Google (GOOG) and LG (066570) are reportedly already prepping a sequel to the sleek smartphone. A purportedly plugged-in user on Korean-language tech forum Ruliweb claims knowledge of Google’s next-generation Nexus smartphone, the LG-built Nexus 5. The handset reportedly features a 5-inch full-HD display, a quad-core Tegra 4 processor, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and Android “Key Lime Pie,” the next version of Google’s mobile operating system.
