Alleged Nexus 5 Images Turn Up, Show Possible Final Design

A fresh batch of Nexus 5 images hit the Web on Monday, clearly showing the device is indeed made by LG. Following an unfortunate slip up by Google, the FCC provided two excellent looks at the search giant’s upcoming flagship, which we’re expecting to usher in the Android 4.4 KitKat era. Nothing has been made official by Google thus far, though seeing as the Nexus 5 has been spotted on multiple occasions, it might as well be.

As the story often goes—it has somehow become a lasting trend in the tech universe—the Nexus 5 you see pictured was left unattended in a bar. That, of course, gave one an employee the opportunity to snap a few pictures, and even take some quick video. Whether that’s an authentic story is unclear, but we are yet again getting a pretty good look at the device’s supposed design; whether it’s final is unclear. From what we can tell, it’ll sport a big display with minimal bezel, soft-touch back (like the Nexus 7) and a huge camera lens.

Despite the quick glimpse, little is known about what Google’s new KitKat update will introduce. The videos (at the source link) don’t provide any meaningful revelation, nor do the pictures. Still, it appears testing by Google employees is well underway, hopefully indicating we’ll see a launch relatively soon.
