Google is going to launch another a Nexus smartphone, and if the rumors and leaked information up to this point are true, both LG and Huawei will be involved. The former is rumored to be in charge of the 5.2-inch model, a supposed picture of which was posted online a week ago, while the latter is said to be making the 5.7-inch version. Some photos of Huawei's model have now also appeared online on a Chinese-language website. What stands out more than anything else in the pictures is the bulging camera, though it's not a circular bulge like LG's model. Instead, the device takes on a periscope-like design with a long, oval-shaped protrusion that runs from side to side on the top of the handset.... Read more...
