The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 (model number GT-I9260) keeps popping up in various leaks that seem to confirm earlier reports that suggested that we’re going to see in stores up to five new Nexus handsets…
Earlier today we showed you the first leaked images of the LG Optimus G Nexus – the name isn’t official yet, but most rumors agree that the first LG Nexus handset will be largely based on the LG flagship handset – and we told you everything we know about the upcoming device.
But it looks like we’re not done with the leaks for today, as the first photos taken with the camera of this LG Nexus handset have been spotted on Picasa. According to EXIF data, assuming it was not tampered with, the pictures were taken with a “Google mako” device that sports an 8-megapixel camera.
You’ll say that “Google mako” sounds nothing like “LG Nexus,” and that’s true. Mako is a codename and represents a type of shark. How is that relevant? Well, previous Google devices also had fish-related codenames: HTC G1 “trout,” HTC Nexus One “mahimahi,” Motorola Xoom “stingray,” Samsung Nexus S “herring” and Samsung Galaxy Nexus “tuna.”
Furthermore, the users that have uploaded the images to Picasa “seem to be LG Korea employees,” according to Androidos.in.
We’ll be back with more details about the upcoming Nexus handsets in the coming days and weeks. Meanwhile, let us know whether you are excited about the LG Optimus G Nexus or not?
