Google is expected to launch two Nexus handsets this year, a new LG Nexus 5 and a Huawei phablet. After the former appeared in a series of leaked images that suggested the phone would have a 3D camera setup on the back, a designer used those images to conceive a stunning video that shows us what the handset might look like.

Jermaine Smit’s Nexus 5 render shows a device that has three openings on the back, two circular ones used by the dual camera assembly and a third square-shaped opening that houses a fingerprint reader.

Google’s next Nexus devices are expected to pack fingerprint scanners now that the company added support for them in Android M. It’s not clear why the device would have two cameras on the back, but that’s what a recently-leaked case design for the handset suggests.

Smit also lists several features of the 2015 LG Nexus 5 in the clip, though they’re yet to be confirmed. According to the concept video, the new Nexus 5 smartphone could pack a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32/64/128GB of internal memory, 16-megapixel dual camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,860 mAh battery and Android M .
