Just the other day a image surfaced on the internet which is allegedly that of the Nexus 5, Google’s upcoming next-gen Nexus handset. While we’re not sure if that is a real rendering of the device or merely a concept, Reddit user Vovicon has taken it upon himself to create a new rendering based on what we do know about the upcoming device, but at the same time making some assumptions about the device as well, with the result pictured above. Vovicon’s rendering of the device is noticeably different from what we saw the other day, but since this is hardly the real deal, some discrepancies are expected.
The Nexus 5 has been rumored to be in the works for a while now, with LG allegedly being the company behind the device again. A possible first-look at the device was spotted in a Google video where the Android 4.4 KitKat statue was unveiled, whereby a mysterious device with the “Nexus” brand written on the back of it, leading to many speculating that this could be the Nexus 5. Additional evidence includes a recent trip to the FCC where some of its specifications were revealed. In any case what do you guys make of this render? Is this a design you could see yourself getting on board with? Or did you prefer the glass backing that LG used in the Nexus 4?
