Sony Nexus X Captured On-Camera?

Update: This has been confirmed as a fake. Nothing to see here folks, move on. The creator has come forward to admit to the fake.

LG’s Optimus-G-based Nexus 4 has been leaking like a rusty sieve, but we’ve heard it won’t be alone in the Nexus spotlight this fall. The other potential Nexus candidates have been playing things a lot more low key than the LG; the HTC Droid Incredible X has shown up a couple times, but not in any way directly tied to the Nexus family, and the all the others we’ve really only heard alluded to by name only. Today we get what might be some new photographic evidence of another of these new Nexus models, upon a couple shots of the so-called Sony Nexus X surfacing.

Both images were uploaded to Picasa over the weekend, shot by a Galaxy Nexus. They show a Sony Android devoid of Xperia branding, but with a prominent Google logo around back. The phone’s face lacks markings entirely, just like the Nexus 4 leaked pics. We can also see a spring-loaded dock connector along one edge, and one that looks a bit more like what we saw on the Galaxy Nexus than the similar connector on Sony models like the Xperia V.

Still, we’re not sure how much faith to put in this find, and we’re going to need to see a little something in the way of corroboration before we start getting too excited. As things stand, it all seems a little too convenient, with the photos so easily accessible in a public album called “Sony Nexus X”. Maybe those suspicions are misplaced, but for now let’s tread carefully.
