Rumors circulated that LG would be the next to claim the Nexus phone as their own.  Rumors are saying the new Nexus phone will be a reworking of LG’s Optimus G.  And if you were a fan of that device you can expect the full Google  experience  added to the device.

While some believe the LG smartphone might be one of five Nexus smartphones to be announced this year to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Android, that isn’t stopping information leaking out about the new LG offering.

The rumours started this week with Taylor Wimberly, claiming that one of the site’s readers – who is not a Google employee, we are told – had been given one for testing.

“I can confirm the next nexus is LG Optimus based. The phone looks surprisingly like the Galaxy Nexus and does not have sharp corners like the LG Optimus we already know,” claimed the unnamed source.

“It has a silver’ring like the iPhone 3G around the outer edge of the screen which seemed to be similar to the Galaxy Nexus in size but was much better in brightness.” The phone was running Android 4.2 instead of 4.1.1, the source added.
