Last week we told you about the upcoming new Google Nexus phone to be manufactured by LG, and now new photos leaked to Belarus's give us our first look at the device.

Note the prominent Google and LG co-branding on the back of the device, as well as what looks to be a distinct, tiled pattern that almost looks like sequins or jewelery. Around front, the new Nexus phone has a more familiar rounded top and bottom with black bezel.

The new Nexus phone is expected to have a 280×768-pixel display, quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera as well as an unfiltered installation of the latest version of Android.

The new Nexus is supposed to be officially announced any day now. We'll have more on it then.
