Images of the LG Nexus appear online

Prototype device gets an unofficial debut
The images don't really give much away about the inner workings of the handset, but it is nice to see the LG Nexus (if that is the final name) in all its glory.
It could be a hoax of some sort, but it is said to be the final design of the phone, confirmed by someone who managed to get a hands-on with the smartphone last week, according to the Android and Me site. The LG Nexus was originally said to be based on the LG Optimus G, but this looks like a very different design, not least with the curved corners and the two tone back panel, which produces that shimmering effect you can see in the image.
The images also confirm that the leaked phone has the Jelly Bean version of Android running, with a recent benchmark also confirming the presence of a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.
Aside from that, it's all down to the speculation we heard earlier this week, which indicates 2GB RAM, a 1280x768 True-HD IPS screen and an 8-megapixel camera, with the possibility of a launch with an updated version of Android.
Still no launch date, but with so much detail (and the images) out there, it can only be a matter of time. Mid-November is still the most likely though.
