A rumor about an Google Nexus Phone made by LG has been surfaced. A tipster has contacted AndroidAndMe to give it a first hand account of what the LG-made Nexus is like.
Reportedly looks like about the same (in about the same size) as the current Galaxy Nexus phone. There’s a silver band running around the perimeter of the phone, similar to that of the iPhone 3G and a Nexus logo on the back similar to the Nexus 7 (with the “x” styled to look like the four-colored Nexus logo).
The tipster claims that the LG Nexus is running Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie, which at the moment is hard to distinguish from 4.1 JB . AndroidAndMe was also sent an 8MP photo with the appropriate EXIF data, though they couldn’t share it “due to the nature of the photo”. Still, the photo points to the LG Optimus Nexus using the 8MP version of the Optimus G camera (as opposed to the 13MP one).
All that is far from confirmed but the rumor mill is really insistent that LG will be making the next Nexus phone. We also heard that “Nexus” phones might be built by multiple makers, so the LG Nexus might not be the next Nexus phone, just one of a generation of Nexus phones.

LG announces today the Optimus Vu successor, the Optimus Vu II. It’s barely been six months since LG announced the square phablet design the Optimus Vu and the Korean company has now already to come up with a successor.
The Optimus Vu II, features the same 5-inch, (1024 x 768) resolution 4:3 display and looks just as unwieldy as before. Now, however, there is a newer 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 from the Snapdragon S4 series ticking inside.
Other changes include a 2GB of built-in RAM, a slightly bigger 2,150mAh battery, IR blaster functionality to use the device as a wireless universal remote control, Miracast support, wireless charging and VoLTE capability listed in the leak is here and accounted for, as well as a Rubberdium Pen 2.0 stylus with a thinner, more precise nub. One thing we hadn’t heard about is its optional “One Key” accessory, a waterproof fob intended for your key ring that can be pressed to make your phone beep loudly if you need to find it, and light up blue or red to alert you when there are messages or if it has finished charging.
Finally,The Optimus Vu II will pack Android 4.0 out of the box plus that integrated IR blaster and QRemote software to control your home theater.
The Optimus Vu II is priced at 966,900 won (About 864 US $) in Korea, though we’ll have to wait for a global announcement to have any idea how much it will cost when it be released.
