    While it would be a very rare occurrence for the following rumor to be true, it does look pretty intriguing so we thought we would share it. Supposedly, an actual Google employee just shared a hands-on with the new LG Optimus G Nexus device. While it would be surprising if a Googler actually risked on of the best jobs on the planet just to share some juicy Nexus gossip, it is not outside the realm of possibility, so it is worth repeating. Apparently, the LG Nexus device is already in the hands of some Google employees, and this particular one shared his hands-on report with some fellow bloggers. Here's the quote,

    One other rumor that came from this is that a picture was shared with the story that came from the LG Nexus device. Unfortunately the source of the article felt it was not appropriate to post, so we don't have it. What is interesting is that the EXIF data on the pic indicates the camera on the LG Nexus phone is only 8MP instead of the 13MP we seen reported about the LG Optimus G. This doesn't necessarily invalidate the story; however. Previous information from LG indicates that there will be a variant of the LG Optimus G that only has an 8MP camera.

    What do you guys think? Is this more "blown smoke" or are we actually seeing this new onslaught of rumors because there is some truth to it?

    Cheers, tgyberg!

    The multi-colored "x" makes me question the validity of this more than anything else. It would be interesting if true, and I'd much prefer a device along the body style of the galaxy nexus. If it is made out of better materials and has a slight heft to it. As much as a "thinner, lighter" device tickles many people's fancy, I preferred the weight of my old Eris and now my Bionic to most stuff released these days.
