leaked lg mystery phone

LG has had a lot on its plate these past few months. After it launched the latest Nexus handset, LG has had major product launches in both the LG Optimus G and the LG Optimus G Pro. With those two checked off , the company is right back to work on another masterpiece to help improve its standing in the smartphone race. The only problem is we have no idea what this device is suppose to be.

Pictured to the left, this mystery device was leaked by @evleaks over the weekend and there’s no name attached to it. As such, this could be anything — from an LG Optimus G2 to a brand new Nexus device. The photo doesn’t give many obvious hints right off the bat, but if you take a look under the display there doesn’t appear to be any home button.

Why is that significant, you ask? Well, both of LG’s aforementioned knockouts have had physical home buttons. The last phone that didn’t have one was the Nexus 4. We’re not saying LG is reprising its role as Google’s best friend for the next Nexus device, but it’s something to think about. Recent rumors have pointed to LG getting another nod despite Motorola working on its dream phone with Google.

It’ll take a bit more probing to find out what this device will become ahead of any official announcement, but feel free to to discuss among yourselves in the comments below. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind another LG-crafted Nexus handset for 2013.
