We recently had a tipster who offered up a hands-on report of the LG Nexus and provided a picture taken with the device. We were asked not to upload the photo because it contained a Google employee. But today a whole gallery of images appeared online that were taken by an LG employee with a device code-named “Mako,” which recent evidence confirms is the LG Nexus.
The new pictures are nothing to get excited over, but we should point out they came from pre-release hardware running pre-release software. They also seem to confirm our earlier reports that the LG Nexus will only feature an 8 megapixel rear camera. The Korean version of the LG Optimus G features a 13 megapixel camera, but they already announced that certain regions would be getting an 8 megapixel sensor instead.
I saved a handful of the pictures and embedded them below, but head over to the source link for the full gallery. After you browse through them, let us know what you think of the picture quality. How important is picture quality for the next Android phone you purchase?
