We revealed last week that LG is back in the picture in terms of Nexus smartphones as the company is building the next device in the series, replacing Nexus 6 maker Motorola. It seems that LG is indeed involved in a new Nexus smartphone, with an Android Open Source Project code revealing an unknown LG made handset with the codename Bullhead.

You may remember that LG codenamed the Nexus 5 Hammerhead, so this device in question could be an updated Nexus 5, a device that has been oft rumoured. It is thought that Google wants a lower end Nexus smartphone and a refreshed Nexus 5 would fit that bill. The handset would reportedly feature a 5.2-inch 1080p screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.

However, there have also been persistent rumors that Google will partner with Chinese megabrand Huawei on this year's Nexus. Well, the company is still in the picture is seems and is building the full replacement for the Nexus 6. Codenamed Angler, this handset will feature a Quad HD screen, a 3500mAh battery, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.

It is expected that both handsets will be revealed in October for a November release, so don't expect to see them at Google I/O, the developer conference that starts tomorrow.
