A new report has surfaced that the next Google Nexus smartphone is going to be made by LG and will be based on the LG Optimus G.
A source told AndroidandMe that he was able to get his hands on the Optimus-based Nexus saying that the phone “looks surprisingly like the Galaxy Nexus and does not have sharp corners like the LG Optimus we already know,” He also claimed that the phone features a silver band like the one found on the iPhone 3G and is similar to the size of the Galaxy Nexus.
The source also reported that the phone has the LG logo at the back and the word ‘Nexus’ etched on it similar to the Nexus 7 tablet but with the letter X styled in four colors. The device runs Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie which according to the source looks like the 4.1.1 Jellybean in its current state but more fluid. AndroidandMe was also sent a sample photo taken with the device and found in its EXIF data an 8 megapixel camera module. Unfortunately, they’re unable to share it “due to the nature of the photo.”
The details can’t be confirmed as of the moment but if ever the reports are true then we can expect an Optimus Nexus to arrive anytime soon.
