A plethora of clear high-quality shots showing off the LG Nexus device are revealing exactly what we can expect from this next Google phone. The LG E960′s insides are dominated by specifications from the Optimus G, the OEM’s newest flagship. We can expect a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 1280 x 768 display sized at 4.7-inches. The prototype device is currently running Android 4.1.2.
As seen in the pictures, the front of the device looks eerily similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus. It boasts a metallic ring around the bezel, and a checkered back pattern. There seem to be two screw holes at the bottom of the device, centered around the microUSB port. A SIM tray resides on the left side, which means we can expect a non-removable battery. The power button is up top on the left side of the device, while the volume rocker is on the right. Next to an iPhone 5, the device is noticeably larger. On screen buttons are confirmed.
If I can interject some opinion here, I’d venture to say this is the best looking LG device I’ve seen since the original LG Shine. Known for their lackluster designs and sub-par material quality, LG has been behind its competitors in the “sexy looks” department. I’m excited to see what this phone has to offer. If the rumors are true, we could be hearing about it at the end of this month.
