The next Google phone known as the Nexus phone, will finally have multiple manufacturers that will be offering the Nexus phones. The LG-made Nexus phone (LG Nexus 4, which already got previewed completely in a prototype form) is a given but in the end, there might be something in that rumor that multiple manufacturers will be offering Nexus phones. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 rumors fizzled out, and we had rumors for an HTC Nexus X, but now and for the first time we are seeing a claimed Sony Nexus Xthere and there are two good looking photos of a Sony-made Nexus phone.
According to the title of the two photos uploaded to Picasa, it’s called Sony Nexus X. While the pics might be fakes, they are at least very realistic-looking fakes.
Unlike the LG design, the front of the Sony Nexus doesn’t look like the current Galaxy Nexus, going for a traditional rectangular Xperia design. The photo of the back also suggests an arc curve, another trademark Xperia design element.
The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio (again, unlike the LG Nexus, which goes for 16:10) and there are only on-screen buttons. There’s no Sony logo on the front, just like there’s no LG logo on the front of the LG Nexus phone or a Samsung logo on the current Galaxy Nexus. On the back there’s a camera of unknown resolution (the options are 8MP or 13MP) with LED flash and there are also a standard microUSB port and pogo pins visible on the side.
Still, we don’t have much to say, but it certainly will have a confirmation as soon as Google decide to make an end to all these rumors.
