As we edge a little closer to a presumable Nexus release, we have been treated with yet another early look at LG’s first attempt, since taking over for Samsung. The picture above was posted by a member of the XDA forums, 4shael, who claims that he received this LG prototype device with a model number of E960.

After posting a few initial pictures of the device, 4shael said he would start taking questions from curious readers. So far he’s given us some pretty basic specs, like a display with a resolution of 1184 x 768, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage, the latter of which we’re hoping is only for the prototype model.

When asked if the device had an LTE radio, 4shael said that it only featured DC-HSDPA, so this is most likely the GSM version and not for Verizon.

Be sure to check back, as 4shael says he’ll try to make a video showing the device off tomorrow, another request from a fellow XDA member.

To find out more, I suggest you hover at the XDA thread below and wait for him to answer more questions. In the meantime, what do you think? Personally, just from the pictures, this phone just looks like LG’s version of the Galaxy Nexus, even 4shael said it seems very similar, with maybe a difference of a 1 or 2mm.
