New pictures of the LG Optimus G Nexus leak, plus specs and a camera sample

Google apparently wants its Nexus stable to be more reliant on cloud storage than manufacturers themselves usually do, but let's see a launch announcement and pricing, and then we'll talk whether 8GB is decent or not, since it might have just wanted to keep the device affordable...

It's clear that's only a prototype, i think at least a 16GB version is assured :)

I think it's 768x1280, not 1184, and 32GB not 8.

It's both depending on how you look at it. The full resolution is 1280x768. The reason it's sometimes listed as 1184 is because 96 rows of pixels are reserved for the software buttons.

I am incredibly fond of the 8GB of internal storage (since my 2-year-old Motorola Flipside that I got back in December 2010 has only like 512MB with a 2GB SD card, such that any apps that don't support the SD card are pretty much screwed), and also the 320 dpi pixel density (which matches the pixel density of the iPhone 5), but may I ask: Why 768x1184 instead of 768x1366? It seems like a deviation from the normal Nexus tradition of the 16:9 aspect ratio, which the LG Nexus seems to be dropping here...

It's actually 1280x768, an aspect ratio of 15:9. 96 rows of pixels are used for the software buttons. I can't say I know why they chose 15:9 over 16:9 either, but I see no serious disadvantage to it. An extra 48 rows of pixels can't hurt, I suppose.
