New images have been posted to the XDA Developer's forum of what is believed to be the next Google Nexus smartphone.
Bearing LG branding, the new phone looks to be very much part of the Nexus family, and quite unlike the phones released by LG in the past. The heavily rounded corners remind us of last year's Galaxy Nexus, manufactured by Samsung.
The XDA member posting the images said they are happy to take questions about the phone, and has so far revealed that the handset features a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 8GB storage. The member also noted that the phone has a screen resolution of 768x1184 and a pixel density of 320dpi, which adds up to be a 4.5-inch screen by our calculations.
There is no indication this is being a 4G phone either, though it does suppose dual-carrier HSPA. Some may see this as a short-fall, but after our recent experiences with 4G phones and battery life, we're happy to go without for now.
Those in the know are suggesting that Google and LG will partner for a launch of this product at the end of October or in early November, but we won't know for sure until we hear from either of these tech giants.
