The next Google Nexus smartphone, as the rumours suggest, might be based on the yet-to-be-launched LG G3 handset. However, the new twist lies in the piece of information which hints the next Nexus to sport a fingerprint scanner as well, following the likes of Apple iPhone 5s and  Samsung Galaxy S5.

The news comes from Android.gs who reports that Google, after its Nexus 5, is again in talks with LG for making the Nexus 6, and is additionally negotiating deals with several Asian fingerprint sensor suppliers.

While the upcoming Nexus 6 is said to be based on LG G3’s design, it is speculated that Google might not include a 5.5-inch screen (said to be in LG G3) as there is a fingerprint sensor involved and hence keep the screen size lower than G3. The firm is likely to give a 5.2-inch screen on the Nexus 6.

Moreover, the rumoured Google Nexus 6, as per Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice President at Google in charge of Android, Chrome and Google Apps, would arrive in the second half of 2014. This means that the smartphone might be powered by a Snapdragon 805 SoC processor as those chipsets have already been introduced in November last year and are said to arrive in first half of this year.

Last week, it was reported that Google might launch a new low-budget Nexus smartphone powered by a MediaTek chipset priced as low as $100 (roughly Rs. 6,000).

Furthermore, it has been reported that speculated Nexus smartphone powered by the MediaTek chipset will be a brand new entry in the Nexus lineup and not a replacement of existing devices like the Nexus 5.
