received our first glance at this mystery handset from the folks at LG, which many believe to be the LG Optimus G2, and today we're getting another up close view at what could even be the next Nexus smartphone. The popular Twitter account @evleaks has once again delivered and posted another photo of this unannounced device, and we're still left wondering what exactly LG has planned.

LG that has our interest piqued. As usual, the always excellent leakster @evleaks has just revealed the device you see below, and there are signs this could be an Optimus G2, or even an LG Nexus 5.
Google have pretty big plans for their upcoming I/O developer event in May, but what exactly will we be seeing is still anyone's guess. We've heard and reported countless rumors but today another has appeared that takes the cake. Apparently Google will be dropping a new LG Nexus 4 (not a 5) with 32GB of storage and full support for 4G LTE. It will run Android Key Lime Pie and be revealed at Google I/O.
HTC Nexus One is still one of my favorite devices. Sure, multi-touch was a mess and Eclair was a work in progress, but I loved it. Fast forward a few years and Android has evolved, Samsung is a powerhouse, and HTC is struggling to keep their head above water. The Nexus 4 has arrived from LG, we all know what the GALAXY S 4 is about, and now everyone is focused on Motorola. That being said, I want an HTC Nexus 5.
coming from HTC. Well, flash forward back to the present day and it looks like the HTC possibility may have been put to the side.
Nexus line is known for pushing the cutting edge and helping the evolution of Android along. Earlier this week Google's brand new LG Nexus 4 finally went up for sale. While we aren't here to talk about the lack of stock, or the immediate sold out status, we do want to mention what should've been. It should have been the HTC Nexus 5 or the HTC Nexus DNA. With a beautiful 5-inch 1080p HD display and a quad-core processor if any phone deserved the Nexus branding, the HTC DROID DNA was it.
Google as the next Nexus smartphone. With the 1 year anniversary of the Galaxy Nexus fast approaching many are anticipating another Nexus will arrive shortly. The LG Nexus 4 has been in the news plenty with rumors stating a late October announcement -- but now we're hearing the HTC Nexus 5 name again.
Global Certification Forum appears to have inadvertently confirmed the existence of the device. The GCF does not confirm whether the device will be called the Droid Incredible X, but it does confirm a model number of HTC6435LVW. Other rumored names for the this device are HTC One X 5 or Google Nexus 5. With Verizon being rumored to be launching a device called the Droid Incredible X in the very near future, that seems like the most likely name for this leaked device. Either way, this phone, with its 5-inch screen, is clearly aimed at competing with the Samsung Galaxy Note II. As we reported recently, this device is rumored to have 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 2MP front camera and 12MP rear camera, a 2500mAh battery, and 1.5Ghz S4 Pro processor from Snapdragon. It will have a 5-inch, 1080p screen for displaying HD media. If Google decides to make this device their flagship, it would be the first phablet to receive the title. As is the case with most Android devices, we do not expect Verizon to announce this device until closer to its release. Either way, this looks like an awesome device whether it receive Google flagship status or not. This and Galaxy Note II are bringing 5-inch phones to forefront in a big way. [via Engadget]
