Update: Did the “Sony Nexus X” just leak online?

Let the plethora of upcoming Google Nexus devices continue. Coming up on their 5th anniversary, Google’s Android OS usually has the honour of one manufacturer per year, but this year it could be multiple manufacturers. We’ve already seen the LG “Nexus 4” leak online, now it’s the “Sony Nexus X” that has reportedly leaked.

A couple pictures arrived on Picasa that show an Android device with the “Google” branding on back, along with Sony. In addition, the tags used in the photo are “google, nexus, nexus x, sony, xperia, sony nexus, xperia nexus.” A “Nexus X” could be a sign of the Xperia branding, which is missing. The “Nexus X” name would fit HTC’s direction (One X and One X+), but this could very well be a prototype of some sorts for the “Xperia Nexus.” Time will tell and it could also not be real… one more pic below.

Update: This has proven to be a massive fake.

      Even if it fake, the details of it was still kept. see the 3 golden dots on side? G-nexus had it too.
      and if it is real, with all the thickness; it better have some nice battery. looks obvious none removable battery.
      Where the hell is samsung and htc?

    1. Looks photoshopped

    2. The shape of the front looks like a x10 (I use to own one)

    • cybik

      That front looks nothing like the X10. I just compared it.

  • Miroslav Satan

    I’ll pick the Sony Nexus vs. LG one any day!

    • Tech

      thanks cool but i wont pick either, still waiting for Samsung Galaxy or HTC One nexus.

    • boojay

      I’m waiting for a Nexus phone, not a Nexus phablet.

  • god

    I would buy this one instead of the LG nexus 4…

  • D

    100% fake… the word google is not the same colour or angle as the word sony… it’s not even a good photoshop.

  • Ron Mexico

    Ugly and fake

  • Brett

    Looks decent… But as far as Nexus Devices go, I plan to to stay away from LG and Sony especially if there’s going to be multiple nexus devices rolling out the next couple of months.
    . My new RAZR HD LTE will keep me busy until these bad boys come out.

    • monsterduc1000

      @Brett: You talk about staying away from certain devices and yet you have a phone that will most likely never get updated…

  • Mike

    I’m intrigued. I like Google. I like Android. I like Nexus. And I like Sony.

  • Dalex

    Doesn’t look real, but I would definitely pick up a Sony nexus over a LG one….

  • Dan

    I’ll take this over LG’s Nexus.

  • jack

    sweet, another phone that i can spend hours cleaning off the fingerprints off the back of the phone.

  • Vin

    Back of the phone (1st Pic) looks like TV/DVD remote.

  • Cody

    Ugly as sin.

  • Osama

    I dont think its fake, probably a prototype. I wouldnt get too excited over Sony anymore though, my X10 is pretty good, but since then the Ion was very underwhelming!

  • JB

    That is one of the ugliest phones I have ever seen. Heck, that is one of the ugliest 1990’s TV remotes I have ever seen.

    I really hope this is photoshopped.

    What’s with all the second string crap this Nexus season?

  • Plazmic Flame

    The photo showing the back of the device looks so fake… It’s not even proportionate. Believe me!… I’ve seen many ‘shops in my time.

  • Rolonoa

    The problem with Sony is that they use out-dated hardware all the time upto this point. Will they be putting on S4 Pro Quad? Highly unlikely.

  • Hamza

    Lol… this is the experia…. look at that shitty camera…. no Nexus would have a camera like that…. And bad photoshop job…. lol even the names are unbalanced…

  • coop3422

    I like Sony, but that thing is fugly

  • ALex Siuda

    it has to be a legit nexus device — it has pogo pins on the side like the galaxy nexus — no other phones have had those pogo pins to date.

  • Not a bear

    This board will erupt (myself included) when a Samsung/HTC Nexus gets announced.

  • Gurn Blansten

    Looks like all their “new” phones to date – Ion and whatever the new underwhelming LTE model is. Sony always has a good camera BUT bad software with out-of-date eveything else – memory, CPU along with poor battery and generally the OS (moot point here as this would be a requirement for Nexus). One can hope they “step-up” and try to regain being a premier phone manufacturer (glory days of GSM and CDMA devices before Android) but not holding out based on their track-record to-date. Want to see Samsung, HTC or even Motorola offer something (people pushing the envelope already) before I ever, ever trust sony. X10 was nice but they lied at onset and never delivered. Ion is hopeless, ditched for Samsung S3 and haven’t looked back.

    Since I started with my online business I earn $62 every 15 minutes. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out. Red97dotc0m

    Funny cause I was dreaming of this device the other day. Hopefully it is true with beast specs and access to the playstation network.

  • tmac

    waiting for htc or asus nexus

  • chris c.

    Probably will not come with quad-core and with its sharp corners it will not be good for your pocket. But if this is going to be Playstation-certified then I could see it being attractive option for the gamer in you.

  • tiesto

    Too bad it’s fake, because it otherwise looks really nice!

  • pisidan

    Never touch a POS sony again EVER!!
