Google showed this phone mockup that might be the next Nexus

Android M has gone official, and it's bringing some significant improvements to six key areas: app permissions, web experience, app links, mobile payments, fingerprint support, and power and charging.
What is particular interesting, though, is that Google showed a mockup of a phone that might be a hint of what the next Nexus phone would look like. Of course, this is just a mockup used for illustration that future devices will ship with USB Type-C, the new connector type that enables much faster charging, but it's also curiously similar to the Nexus 5.
LG's Nexus 5 was one of the best received Nexus phones, but Google has recently discontinued the phone, leaving the ecosystem with no regular-sized smartphone (the Nexus 6 is a monstrous 6-inch phone).
So hopefully, this little slide serves as inspiration for a future Nexus 5 successor, as it does look mighty sleek, doesn't it?

Updated Nexus 5 with 5" 1440p screen and Snapdragon 820, perhaps?...

Can't wait for universal adoption of USB Type C... including iPhones... this will end the, still remaining, problem of friends at my house without an apple cable to charge... or the other way around...

looks smooth? does that mean we finally going get a cable like lighting cable where its same on both sides making it much more easier to just plug it in instead of flipping the cable around until you get it?

That's how USB Type C works yes...but you really should snap out of iland because the ancient Nexus 5 already had a much superior option. Wireless. No wires at all. Charging is simply placing it on a table.
