You know how some of the earlier Nexus devices wore Samsung-specific monikers? I’m talking about Nexus S (as in Galaxy S) and Nexus Galaxy. Well, LG wanted a similar deal for the new Nexus 5 – it would’ve liked that Google opted for the Nexus G name that goes in line with the company’s new policy to use “G” suffix (without “Optimus”) for its high-end devices.
Alas, for some reason or another, the search giant liked the name with number more, and since they get to decide on these matters, today we have the Nexus 5. And we like it that way, though we would like the Nexus G name as well. We care more about the specs here…
Perhaps LG will be able to push that name for some future Nexus product, presuming it keeps its relationship with Google. We’ll see… In the meantime, we want to know – would you like the Nexus G name more than Nexus 5?
