The Nexus rumours have been bouncing back and forth over the last week. First we heard that LG was set to launch a Nexus phone and that Android 4.2 was on its way this month, but then Google quashed the gossip. Thing is, Google, how do you explain these here LG Nexus pictures?
A series of leaked images has landed online, clearly showing a 4.3-inch phone with LG sensibilities and Google branding.
The mystery Nexus bears a striking resemblance to the LG Optimus G, as has been rumoured, and seems to be running Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). Other noteworthiness comes in the form of the controls – LG’s using Google’s suggested method of onscreen controls.
The big G is expected to take to the stage at the AllThingsD conference later this month to announce… Something. Whether that is a new version of Android or not, all signs now point to an LG-flavoured Nexus coming to refresh the flagship Android lineup in time for Christmas.
