LG has left proof that it will soon launch a new device, which is most probably a new Nexus device. We can call this, the Nexus 5, even though Google might name this one differently. Based on some FCC documents that show precise information about the future design of this LG device, a Reddit user was able to generate a virtual render of the what the Nexus 5 is supposed to be. The render that the user did is actually very well realized and could easily make you believe that it is the real deal. However it's not really the best looking phone either, so we are hoping this is not how the real Nexus 5 is going to look like. The FCC documents leaked the other day give accurate information about the design and with the right knowledge and tools, you can generate such renders. While this might not be how the real Nexus 5 will look like, it's the best design so far, and the most possible one. We are expecting LG and Google to reveal a new Nexus device in October, together with the new Android KitKat 4.4. Other specialists are saying that the FCC images might indicate that the Nexus 5 will have the same camera as the LG G2, so we are talking about a 13 MP camera. The Galaxy S4 and Note 3 both have 13 MP cameras also, so this is already mainstream for this year's technology, thus we might actually see this one become a reality. By now we can only speculate on what Google's next move will be, why they chose LG for the next Nexus and not Motorola and how will the final device look like. However all Nexus devices so far have been real successes especially because of the really low prices they are sold for, so I'm expecting this one to be a real hit also.
