There is a lot of hype going on about the next Nexus device which is going to feature the next version of Google’s Android mobile operating system. The next Nexus is expected to come from the stables of LG, for the first time. And there is also the rumor that the LG branded Nexus will be based on the LG Optimus G, which is the company’s latest flagship device.
Android And Me got a hands on report from a person who got a chance to use the actual device. So if you are still thinking that the LG branded Nexus is still a rumor, you are going to be proved wrong pretty soon. Now, the hands on report provided by that user is as follows (quoted by Android And Me):
“I can confirm the next nexus is LG Optimus based. The phone looks surprisingly like the Galaxy Nexus and does not have sharp corners like the LG Optimus we already know. It has a silver’ring like the iPhone 3G around the outer edge of the screen which seemed to be similar to the Galaxy Nexus in size but was much better in brightness.
I couldn’t have said if it was larger in the few minutes that I had the phone. Also, it has Nexus written on the back like the Nexus 7 except there is a color element to it. The ‘X’ is in four colors. There was also the LG logo on the back.
Android 4.2 in its current state looked exactly like the 4.1.1 we love. There were no tabs on that build version for home-screens as you suggested from your other tipster. What I was amazed by is how fluid everything seemed to be from exiting apps, switching, etc. It seems like they’ve increased the number of transitions and their types. It still had the hodge-podge mess of multiple communication tools: Messenger, GTalk, Voice and SMS.”
And with this description, the online publication has come out with a Photoshoped mock up of how the LG Nexus device would look like. And that is what you can see at the top of this post. So do you like it?
