Did you like yesterday’s Nokia metal phone render? Inspired by the Nokia N1 tablet, that model was designed by Kim Wayne and today the same designer brings us a handset we’ve seen time and time again, the Nexus 5 2015. This model is shown below with a fingerprint scanner in tow.

It seems to keep part of the Nexus 5 design approach and it appears we’re dealing with the LG Nexus 5 2015 here, not the Huawei one. The back is slightly rounded, especially at the corners and we get autofocus laser and dual LED flashes next to the main camera. The dual front speakers are still here, plus the lower area USB Type C port. One of the things that the Nexus 2015 has going for it is the lack of ugly plastic cutouts at the back.

The back seems to be made of polycarbonate, probably with a soft touch approach, just likeĀ  the Nexus 5. In the eternal question “metal or plastic?”, Google seems to have chosen both, as they’re planning to release both a metal and plastic Nexus, judging by the latest leaks of the Huawei and LG model. Will one cannibalize the other?
