Google has long been rumoured to be making two new Nexus devices to debut alongside Android M later this year and the smaller of the two, which should be made by LG, has allegedly been captured in the wild. Thanks an image posted in the nexus Indonesia Google+ community, we may have our first look at the new Nexus 5 in all its glory.

The picture shows the back of a white Nexus handset and at the base is a sticker with a red logo that looks like LG’s logo. This – coupled with the matte non-metallic rear finish – suggests that if accurate, the handset pictured is LG’s Nexus and not the metal-clad Huawei Nexus.

At the top of the handset is a camera lens and just underneath it appears to be a circular fingerprint sensor. Further credence is handed to the fact that it closely matches recently leaked renders of the LG Nexus, suggesting this is the design we can expect from the upcoming Nexus handset.

The LG Nexus is expected to be the smaller of the two upcoming Nexus devices, with a 5.2-inch Full HD display amongst the rumoured specs. Other notable specs include a Snapdragon 808 processor and a 2700mAh battery. There’s not a lot of other rumoured specs but what we are expecting is that the LG Nexus will be a direct successor for the Nexus 5, which was pulled from sale earlier this year.
