Although nothing's official yet, it is looking more and more likely that we'll see two Nexus smartphones this year, with Huawei and LG claimed to be the manufacturers. Huawei's Nexus leak from earlier this month suggested that the phone will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, while LG's model is expected to come with a 5.2-inch display.
Leaked live photos will undoubtedly start showing up as we head closer to the October release cycle for Nexus devices, but for now, renders of the LG-made Nexus based on "detailed factory schematics provided to accessory-makers" have emerged online.
The renders give us a basic idea as to the kind of design language adopted by LG, with the fingerprint sensor at the back representing a natural evolution from the back-mounted power buttons we've seen since the LG G2. The renders also highlight a protruding camera module, and stereo speakers at the front. Alleged dimensions of the phone include a height of 146.9mm, width of 72.9mm and thickness of 8mm (9.8mm at its thickest point).
What do you make of the design overview as seen in the renders? Does the idea of a 5.2-inch LG-made Nexus appeal to you?
