Google has been tight-lipped about its alleged Nexus 4 successor since a while. However, the device has made multiple appearances on the Internet via FCC filing and image leaks.
Thanks to 9to5google, the alleged Nexus 4 successor has again been spotted in new live images and a video. The site has posted some images of a pre-production unit of the next Nexus smartphone that reveals the front and rear panel. The rear panel of the device houses a large camera sensor at the top right side. The front is majorly dominated by the display with no physical buttons. The new images of the device match the leaks we have seen as of late. The site has also posted a video that does not reveal much except the lockscreen of the alleged device.
Additionally, Spigen, a case and accessory manufacturer for various smartphones including Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy range of smartphones has listed a case for the next-generation Nexus smartphone on Amazon. The listing offers a potential insight into the launch date and on how the handset might look.
Earlier, the alleged Nexus 4 successor was revealed in pictures by FCC filing. The photos offered glimpse of the externals and internal components of the same phone that was spotted in the Android KitKat statue unveiling video in the hands of a Google employee. While the phone in the pictures did not sport the Nexus branding unlike the previously spotted phone, it had the same large camera lens and LED flash. The back of the phone appeared to sport a rubberised matte finish.
Previously, @evleaks suggested that the rumoured LG branded D820 devcie was just a CDMA variant of the flagship, but later backtracked saying that he was wrong.
