LG Nexus Prototype Leaks, First in Dummy Case Then Finalized Design

Just hours ago a LG prototype device hit the web, being dubbed as the next Google Nexus phone. Its design was hidden by an outer casing, but just hours later it was leaked again, this time in the final form. We’ve been hearing about an LG Nexus Phone for a while now and it has finally come true. The pics show a device that’s quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and also it has an interesting back texture.

The LG Nexus codename is now Mako and the specs are confirmed thanks to a Nenamark benchmark result. It appears this model features Qualcomm’s 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, with Adreno 320 GPU. It should also feature 2 GB of RAM and 13 megapixel camera, if the relation to the LG Optimus G is kept. It should also get the 4.7 inch 1280 x 768 pixel display of the Optimus G and the it appears that the screen is showing a model number that’s “Fully Jelly Bean on Mako”.

The codename Mako fits a type of shark and Android loves should know that all the Google Android phone phones have been codenamed after fish, even back in the days of the T-Mobile G1. There’s another codename, the E960, that was spotted a while ago in the FCC tests, prompting the first rumors about the LG Nexus phone. Late October is the rumored debut time frame for this unit, apparently. Who’s excited about this newcomer, that will potentially usher Android 4.2 into the world?
