LG Nexus comes to life in new renders

Yesterday we got a first look at LG’s alleged new Nexus phone courtesy of Twitter tipster OnLeaks. Now the gadget leaker is back with a few new images that show the case in even more detail.

Just like before, the Nexus case pictured above features the usual camera and flash cutouts along with a mysterious third circular hole. It’s possible this could leave space for a second rear camera, allowing you to shoot 3D footage or edit the focus on photos after taking them. It might also be a fingerprint reader, which we’re expecting from the new Nexus after Google announced support for the technology as part of its upcoming Android M release.

The leak also reveals a connector port and headphone jack along the bottom of the device and cutouts for the power and volume buttons on the right side. Finally, it looks like the phone’s speakers will be located in front. Of course, it’s just as possible these renders are based off incorrect information, so we wouldn’t get too excited yet.

Based on previous leaks we’re expecting LG’s Nexus phone to feature a 5.2-inch display, a 2700mAh battery, a Snapdragon 808 processor and run Android M. Rumor has it Google’s also working with Huawei on a larger Nexus handset that sports a 5.7-inch frame, a 3500mAh battery and a Snapdragon 810 chip.

We aren’t expecting Google to unveil its new Nexus lineup until October, when the company typically reveals the latest version of Android. That means there’s still some time left to finalize the design, but not very much.
