There are plenty of new LG Nexus 5 and Huawei Nexus leaks out there, painting an interesting picture of Google’s 2015 Nexus plans. For the first time, Google will have two new Nexus devices in stores this year, each serving different purposes. But both handsets will give users access to the same new features, including a fingerprint sensor and USB-C port.

A new video supposedly shows us exactly what the 2015 Nexus 5 model will look like, and it’s seemingly our best look yet at Google’s Nexus 5 reinvention.

The renders were created by @onleaks for @uswitchtech, and they show the new LG handset from all angles. While these aren’t official videos or images of the actual upcoming handset, they’re apparently based on detailed factory schematics that were provided to accessory makers. As a result, they should show us exactly what the new phone will look like.

The handset in the following set of images features a protruding camera on the back. Below it rests the fingerprint sensor – so this won’t be a dual 3D camera system, as previous leaks had suggested. On the front, the new LG Nexus 5 should have dual stereo speakers. The USB Type-C port is found on the bottom, next to the headphone jack.

Google is expected to launch the new handset at some point this fall alongside the Huawei Nexus phablet and the public release of Android M. In the mean time, you can check the highly detailed Nexus 5 renders in the video below, and in a few additional images.
