Oh no. It looks like Android manufacturers aren’t able to keep as tight a lid as they’d like on their upcoming smartphone releases. The latest victim of a leak is LG and their upcoming Nexus 5 phone. So just what did we learn from the new photos? Well, for one, Google will be recycling previous Nexus product names. This seems logical when you consider that they started using the Nexus 7, 8, and 9 monikers for their existing tablets. Next is the fact that LG’s new phone appears to be a revised version of the original Nexus 5 which was launched back in October 2013. It’ll also include some new functionality such as fingerprint reader for security as well as mobile payment authentication.


In terms of design, the new Nexus 5 doesn’t differ much from from the old one. You’d be hard pressed to tell them apart aside from the fact that the new phone features slightly more rounded edges than its predecessor. We’ll see just how much of an upgrade this phone is over the Nexus 6 when it comes out in a couple of months.
