In a video titled “Fingerprint and Payments APIs” on the Google Developers YouTube channel, a Nexus 5-like phone is being used to explain some of the features of Google’s upcoming OS, Android M. Some news sources speculate that Google is probably foreshadowing its next-gen Nexus 5.
A Reddit user first stumbled upon the 2:48 minute video. In this video, we can see a red Nexus 5 model. Meanwhile, we can notice an unusual fingerprint button right next to the rear camera of the smartphone.
Beyond that, another user noted that the featured Nexus 5 had a USB-C port as well.
According to the news reports, Google can implement this design in its next-generation of the Nexus 5 handsets.
LG and Huawei are reportedly manufacturing houses for upcoming Nexus phones. LG is supposedly developing an advanced level Nexus 5 version.

Google introduced Android M in last week during its I/O conference. Some of the most significant features of the advanced version of Android OS are fingerprint scanner and an efficient USB-C battery charging. Moreover, the Android M will let users transfer app data and APKs to microSD cards.
Even before the event, it was rumored that Google will focus on battery and RAM usage in Android M. For this purpose, Google has reportedly directed its team to eliminate the unnecessary usage of RAM and look for battery saving processing.
