Over recent weeks a new Nexus-class Android smartphone from LG has slowly been taking shape. Recently leaked photos show a device aesthetically similar to Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, albeit with a crazy texture covering its back. Rumors indicate Google will announce the device, which is based on LG's flagship Optimus G, towards the end of October. In terms of software, some reports have indicated that LG's Nexus will run an improved Android 4.2 OS, although the latest hardware leak shows a device running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. All of the news on LG's new smartphone will appear right here, so keep it locked for more updates.
