The rumors and leaks for Google’s smartphones are growing! Leaked photos of the two new unreleased Nexus smartphones, manufactured by LG and Chinese telecommunication equipment maker Huawei, have hit the Web within the past week.
One photo, which leaked in the Google Nexus Community Indonesia shows what appears to be the LG device. You’ll see the back-facing camera lens and below it the small circle that seems to confirm the rumors of a fingerprint scanner. The display size is reportedly 5.2 inches.
Apparently this is the new Nexus. Looks fine from this angle. Give us more, Mr Blurricam! pic.twitter.com/qmmvDDCZyY

According to @OnLeaks, both smartphones will feature USB-Type C ports, fingerprint sensors, front-facing speakers and a metal frame.
When will they be released? A date hasn’t been announced yet, but speculators say October or November of 2015 make sense, in time for Black Friday/Christmas shopping season. The new smartphones will most definitely run the much anticipated Android M.
