Google’s New Nexus Phone Image Leaks on the net


WASHINGTON: The image of Google’s new Nexus phone has been leaked on the internet.

According to The Verge, the images were posted on the Nexus Indonesia Google+ community.

In May, the reports suggested that Google was working with partners Huawei and LG to produce two new Nexus phones, a 5.7-inch Huawei device and a 5.2-inch model with LG.

The image shows the back of a white Nexus device. At the base is a sticker featuring a small red circle that appears to be LG’s logo, suggesting that the phone is the LG device.

It also features a bulging camera, laser focus and dual-LED flash.

At the top is a camera and underneath it is a similarly sized circle that looks to be the fingerprint scanner.

The image resembles renders of the supposed LG device leaked late last week with a rounded back and a camera.

There is no solid date set for either phone’s launch.



Sri Lanka elections: Rajapaksa hopes for comeback


Sri Lankans are going to the polls in a general election, with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa hoping to return to office as prime minister.


Mr Rajapaksa lost the presidency in a snap election in January to his former health minister, Maithripala Sirisena.

Four people have died in violent incidents during the campaign although monitors say there has been less violence than in previous years.

Fifteen million people are eligible to vote, with results expected on Tuesday.

Polls opened at 07:00 local time (01:30 GMT) and will close at 16:00.

Mahinda Rajapaksa is standing as a member of parliament for the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

If Mr Rajapaksa wins his seat by a large margin, and the UPFA secure an outright majority, President Sirisena (who leads the UPFA) will be under pressure to name him prime minister.
