First live images of LG's 2015 Nexus phone emerges
While Huawei is widely expected to be making this year's Nexus device, reports in the past few weeks have hinted that LG will also be making a Nexus device this year making it a duo of Nexus phones for the very first time. Huawei's Nexus phone is expected to be as big as their P8 Max with a 5.7-6" display like the outgoing Nexus phone and that leaves LG to produce a compact Nexus phone (5-5.2" display) made for the everyday user.
Last week we saw 3D renders of both the Huawei and LG Nexus phone and this week we have the first live image of the upcoming Nexus phone. As much as initial reports suggest, LG's 2015 Nexus is not merely just an upgrade to the age old Nexus 5, it'll come with an improved design alongside the up-to-date hardware configuration.
From this image we can clearly see that there's a lot going on the back of the device with the slightly protruding camera module being accompanied by a dual LED flash array and the phase detection auto focus system. Moving down, we can see a round orb which is most likely the embedded fingerprint scanner and moving toward the center is the nexus logo in black and white.
Google is expected to unveil both the Huawei and LG Nexus phones alongside the launch of Android M in September/October so stay tuned for more on that.
