We’ve heard a lot about LG’s Optimus G recently. The company unveiled their new flagship phone a couple days ago and we certainly gave it a good look-over. However, word on the street is that Google will be using the Optimus G as their next flagship phone and will call it the Optimus Nexus.

Sources have said that Google may be going with LG to produce the search giant’s upcoming Nexus device, and if that turns out to be true, the Optimus G might be the phone that they’ll base it off of. It’s still running Ice Cream Sandwich as of LG’s unveil a couple days ago, but it will most likely see a Jelly Bean update by the time it hits the States in November.

The only question is, will it go by the “Optimus Nexus” name or stick with “Optimus G” by the time it arrives in US? It’s anyone’s guess as to how LG and Google will proceed from here on out. Not too long ago, there was a leak that mentioned LG, Samsung, and Sony were all interested in creating a new Nexus device, so it may even be possible that we’ll see multiple Nexus phones in the Google Play store in a couple months.

However, the big story right now is whether or not we’ll see an Optimus Nexus come November. The new phone is equipped with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera, and 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPSPlus 1280 x 768 display. It would be quite the Nexus device if I say so myself.
