Alleged rear of LG ‘Bullhead’ Nexus phone leaks out


Now that we’re working our way through the summer and getting closer to the fall, the Nexus rumors are going to start heating up, and a newly-leaked image may be the start of that rumor fire.

@OnLeaks, aka Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowhereelse.fr, claims to have an image that shows the “form factor” of the 2015 LG Nexus phone, which is codenamed “Bullhead.” The image came from a case maker and is said to be based on “very early informations.”


So what can we see? Well, the rear has three cutouts, two of which are probably for the camera (round) and flash (square). But that third one is a mystery. Perhaps its for a fingerprint reader, a feature that’s natively supported in Android M? We can also see cutouts along the side and bottom for volume and lock buttons, as well as a charging port.

The rumor mill has suggested that Google is prepping two Nexus phones for 2015: an LG-made “Bullhead” and a Huawei “Angler.” The LG phone is reportedly the smaller of the two with a 5.2-inch display, while the Huawei device might have a 5.7-inch screen. The LG Bullhead is also said to have a Snapdragon 808 processor and 2700mAh battery.

Based on the rumors that’ve emerged so far, which new Nexus phone are you more interested in?
