Nexus 5 refresh brings minor design changes

The Nexus 5 has only been available for a short while, but it looks like that has still been enough time for a quick refresh.

The confirmation comes by way of Google spokesperson Gina Scigliano who mentioned that "Android's latest camera HAL (hardware abstraction layer) and framework supports raw and burst-mode photography."
