It might be time to welcome a new Google Nexus smartphone this year. Even though rumours suggest that LG and Huawei both are working with the company to manufacture new phones, new leaks might offer a glimpse of the new device.
According to uSwitch, the new smartphone by LG will offer a rear fingerprint scanner along with a metal frame and plastic rear. In addition, the front panel will showoff dual-stereo speakers. Other rumoured specifications include a 3D camera along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.
The shape of the USB aperture suggests that the phone will also feature a USB Type-C port. The report also suggests that the screen will be offered in 5.2 inches and will be 146.9mm high, 72.9mm wide and 8mm thick. It might also be the first smartphone to feature Android M. Google is expected to unveil the new Nexus devices in October or November.
Popular video producer Marques Brownlee also revealed an image of the back panel of the purported Nexus device by LG.

At the bottom of the image, one can sport the LG logo as well and the Nexus logo goes in the center. One can also sport the rumoured fingerprint scanner just below the camera lens.
Considering the LG made Nexus 5 was quite popular in comparison to the Motorola made Nexus 6, it is not surprising that LG has been chosen to make the next Nexus device.
