In related news, a new rumor suggests the follow-up to Google's flagship device will launch during the month of October, CNET reports.
Meanwhile, a new reports suggests the Nexus 5 will launch Oct. 14 alongside Android 4.4 Kit Kat. The release date would be in line with Google's Android update schedule in previous years.
But Google has not yet confirmed the date and some experts say to take the rumors with a grain of salt, the International Business Times reports.
And new photos have surfaced showing off the face and back of the Nexus 5 smartphone, the successor to last year's Nexus 4.
The LG phone will likely launch this fall, Business Insider reports.
In related news, some observers believe documents filed by phone maker LG reveal key details about the so-called next-generation Nexus 5 -- but now an inside source says the rumor isn't true.
A new report all but confirms the phone depicted in the filing is actually a variant of LG's G2 handset, Android & Me reports.
Observers pointed points out that the model number of the mystery device -- D820 -- immediately precedes the model number of an existing variant of the G2, D821.
The documents reveal a device that will offer 7-band LTE, a 5-inch screen and come with the yet-unreleased Android 4.4 preloaded.
Measurements indicate the phone will be about 131.9mm tall and 68.2mm wide -- slightly thinner and shorter than the Nexus 4 despite boasting a screen that's 0.26 inches larger. That means the phone might sport super-thin bezels.
Overall the documents paint a picture of a device highly similar to an unidentified phone that made a brief appearance this week in a teaser video for the next version of Android, now codenamed KitKat.
The mystery phone sports the Nexus name on its back.
Previously rumors suggested that Motorola, not LG, would build the next iteration of Google's flagship device for release in the fourth quarter of this year.
The source was former AndroidandMe writer Taylor Wimberly, who took to Google+ last month to say Google and Motorola are working on the new Nexus phone.
"Motorola will release a Nexus smartphone in Q4 (that is not the Moto X)."
Wimberly, known for his good rumor mill track record, provided no additional details about the phone.
Early reports that pegged LG --the maker of the current Nexus 4 handset -- to stay on for the next iteration in the line now appear to be true.
According to rumors the upcoming Nexus 5 could feature a 5-inch full HD screen, an eight-core 2.3GHz processor, 3GB of ram, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 33oomAh battery and the latest version of Google's Android operating system.
And it's rumored to support 4G/LTE and come in three internal storage variants: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
