It looks like the Nexus 5 rumors may have been confirmed. Earlier this week the long-rumored device was seen in a Google promotional video, and now the handset has been spotted in an FCC filing, revealing photos and specs for what could very likely be the Nexus 5.

The photos included in the FCC filing are almost enough to convince us this is real deal. They look very similar to the Nexus 5 spotted at Google HQ, particularly the smartphone’s massive camera, and the device’s listed specs help confirm our suspicions. The new handset boasts 7-band LTE—compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint—as well as CDMA / EVDO rev A, pentaband DC-HSPA+ and quadband GSM / EDGE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac, which all point to one heck of a smartphone.

Google’s announcement on Tuesday that Android 4.4 KitKat OS is on the way also has us thinking the Nexus 5 could be released in the near future, so it’s no surprise that the device is already being tested.
