The concept design is based on leaked case renders for the upcoming Nexus smartphone. We saw a mysterious third cutout in the back of the leaked cases, and this concept suggests it might be filled with a second rear camera. We’ve seen a few companies try the same setup, in an effort to offer extra editing features, with mixed results. It’s also possible Google could bring something similar to its Project Tango 3D camera to the new smartphone.
There’s also a USB-C connector, but no fingerprint reader in sight. Other possible specs include a 5-inch display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2860mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB of storage. It runs stock Android M software. That all sounds pretty good, though recent rumors suggest the LG Nexus phone may not be quite so powerful.
The design looks pretty great too, though we don’t expect the actual device to be exactly the same. LG’s new Nexus appears pretty similar to the original Nexus 5, though with a few noticeable improvements. The bezels are a little thinner and the corners a bit curvier, but that’s about it.
We can’t wait to see how Google’s 2015 Nexus lineup actually turns out. For now check out the full concept design video below, and stay tuned for the latest news on LG’s rumored stock Android phone.
