LG will deny they’re making the Nexus 5 until the cow comes home, but that won’t keep the rumor mill from spinning. The latest report out of Chinese outlet MyDrivers suggests LG definitely is making the next Nexus device (which we assume could be named the Nexus 5).

According to them, LG’s second Nexus phone would be quite similar to the LG G2 that was just unveiled about a week ago (be sure to check out our hands-on coverage). It’s said to have a 5.2 inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and more, though the processor will be a Snapdragon 600 instead of a Snapdragon 800. This is reportedly to make the handset cheaper so Google can get back toward that $300-350 price point we all enjoyed on the Nexus 4.

We’d love to take all of this at face value, but as with any rumor we have to take it with a grain of salt. LG didn’t do a bad job with the Nexus 4 at all, and if the G2 is anything to go by we wouldn’t mind them taking another shot at Google’s premier flagship Android device. Let’s just hope whatever it is doesn’t come with those awkward-feeling buttons on the back.
