LG_Nexus_leak1-900-75.jpgLG’s status as the manufacturer behind the next Google Nexus handset has been all-but confirmed today with the release of a series of revealing spy-shots of the new smartphone.

Popping up on Russian site Onliner, it looks set to be a large handset (pictured above, left), sporting a 4.7 inch screen and featuring a nifty, Matrix-code like backplate.

That display runs at a 1280×768 resolution, powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, as well as 2GB of RAM.LG_Nexus_leak3-900-90.jpgHowever, the report also claims that there’s just a minuscule 8GB of built in storage space inside the next Nexus phone. That’s even less than the 16GB found in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Here’s hoping that this time at least, unlike its forerunner, LG’s Nexus device supports microSD cards. It’s going to need to.
Onliner state that the prototype version of the handset they’ve played with is running Android 4.1, but being the next flagship Android device, we expect it to hit retail stores with Android 4.2 upon its eventual release.

We’re expecting invites to roll out over the coming days. We’ll keep you posted as to what they eventually reveal.
