Wondering what the Nexus 5 2015 "Bullhead" that we've been speculating about for the last three months might look like? An alleged leaked photo of the phone might be our first glimpse. Indonesian Google+ user Inno Yudha posted the photo above to a Nexus enthusiast community on Sunday afternoon (US time). He gave no indication of what it is, but based on the clear "Nexus" label on the rear, the "not for sale" markers, and the general size, many are speculating that this is a pre-retail version of LG's Nexus phone.
We're pretty skeptical about this one. On the one hand it roughly matches fan-made renders published last week. Those renders can't be confirmed, but are claimed to be based on firsthand experience with both the LG Nexus 5 and the larger Huawei Nexus phone expected later this year. On the other hand, neither the renders nor this photo match LG's current design language, and they don't look much like the previous LG-made Nexus 5 from 2013, either. The rear shows a standard camera module with an exaggerated "hump" and a metal or plastic circle that would seem to indicate a fingerprint reader, a confirmed AOSP feature in the next version of Android.
We'll be keeping an eye out for any other leaks that verify or contradict this photo.
