Google Nexus 5 have been in the news for a very long time. Some pointed towards LG, while other thought Motorola. Who is actually making the next Nexus smartphone is still a question. But, according to TechTastic, a newbie in leaking stuffs, and other tech sites, LG is going to make the next Nexus smartphone in partnership with Google with LG G2 like design.

Leaked Nexus 5

According to, the upcoming Nexus smartphone will be inspired by LG G2 and will feature LG G2 like design leaving the bold stuff like back buttons. That means, Nexus 5 or whatever it will be named in final will come with plastic back rather than glass back as seen on Nexus 4.

The same was reported by TechTastic (TT) and they have leaked an image of upcoming LG smartphone, which most probably is the next-generation Nexus 5. The picture (above) was sent to TT by an unnamed LG tester and the description with the image was "Nxs5", which leaves little to the imagination.

According to them, the above picture reveals the back panel of the Google Nexus 5. What we can see in the image is a USB charging port at the bottom with speaker grills, rear camera with flash and usual volume rockers on the left hand side along with a smaller button above the volume button, which might be a mute switch similar to the one on the iPhone.

Google Nexus 5 is rumoured to arrive with better specifications than Nexus 4, while costing the same as Nexus 4. The smartphone is rumoured to arrive with 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display, Snapdragon 600 processor rather than Snapdragon 800 CPU, due to the price point along with 10MP rear camera, just as the Motorola Moto X.

Also, Nexus 5 will come with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which is the next generation of the mobile operating system from Google that will take over Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which is currently the latest Android version.
