That was in the video released by Google to announce the next version of Android after Jelly Bean, KitKat. Intentionally or mistakenly, a Googler couldn’t hide the Nexus 5 he had been testing. It seems it is time for everyone else to test one too.
In the past few hours there are enough leaked photos of the Nexus 5 that it is now not just a matter of what it will look like but when we’ll get to see it announced officially. The Nexus 5 has been spotted at the FCC according to various tech media outlets and renowned leakstar @evleaks has gone ahead to add to the growing album of leaked Nexus 5 photos some new evidence to prove just that. Have a look:
The Nexus 5, according to the leaks, is made by LG (just like the Nexus 4) and will feature most of the internals of LG’s flagship device, the LG G2. Not outright though since Nexus devices aren’t known for packing all the top of the range specifications. That is the preserve of the Android OEM’s various flagships that are usually premium-priced. To keep the competitive pricing of the ageing Nexus 4, the Nexus 5 is rumoured to shed off most of the LG G2’s high end specs though we are not sure which ones since we all expect 1080p goodness in the device that will formally bring Android KitKat to the world. We should not be shocked if the Nexus 5 sheds off the G2’s Snapdragon 800 chipset for the Snapdragon 600 though something tells me that may not be the likely scenario. 2 GB of RAM, a 4.7 inch display and a 2300 mAh battery are almost a given though we’ll have to exercise some patience as we await official confirmation sometime soon.
