LG Nexus images surface: Optimus G-like design, on-screen buttons
posted by Victor H. / Oct 09, 2012, 1:58 AM
Indeed, the LG Nexus has a back cover very similar to the one on the Optimus G, but at the front it’s almost identical to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. So overall, it looks like a crossover device, a combination of the two. The LG Nexus carries the Mako codename, which aligns with previous rumors, and runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
The camera with LED flash and the loudspeaker are situated on the back, but all of this might change in the final unit, and this is clearly an early prototype, if not only for the “not for sale” label.
Interestingly, an FCC filing reveals that the LG Nexus supports T-Mobile and AT&T HSPA frequencies, but there is no LTE support. Hopefully, that’s an international version that’s surfaced and the U.S. one would have 4G LTE. Check out the pictures below to see the device for itself, how do you like it?

Hoping for a one looking like the Xperia Arc with a mix of NXT design elements - I would like to see how that turns out to be. I'm excited for the HTC One :D, Samsung would probably go curved screen again.

Yes the early "leaked" images of the phone have captive buttons. But that is an early unit, plus we don't even know if that is the actual device. I will bet it's a Nexus. I know someone that is fairly high up in Verizon and has actually seen it and held it. He played that whole "I can not confirm nor deny but what I hope it has is...." and what I've got from him is it will be a pure google phone with the name Nexus 5 and is currently reffered to within Verizon as the Incredible X to throw people off from the Nexus part.

Can we move forward with phone design, PLEASE. This. phone. is. underwhelming. Google needs to stop with this getting OTHER people to design their phones crap and put together a team of the best industrial designers they can and DESIGN a great looking phone. THIS IS WHERE APPLE OUTSHINES THEM.

well not really, as apple have stopped designing and just adapting there previous design which destroys the original. i agree we need some revolutionary new designs in phones. the lumia 920 is a great design, taken from the n9 that doesn't get the credit it should

meh...the back looks okay although i dislike how the Camera Sensor is positioned but the front side turns me off. i'm not a fan of chrome accents.

This probably isn't the final design, or at least I hope it isn't. And if it is, may Motorola, Sony, or HTC be there to save us on the design front with their Nexus... If LG is the only Nexus manufacturer, well then... S**t.
