This afternoon we’re getting our first look at the LG Nexus 5 out and in the wild. Well, in the wild aside from the accidentally leaked image from Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat statue unveiling earlier this month. A few videos and a trio of images have leaked, and we’re getting some terrible video and our first solid look in pictures of the front and rear of the new smartphone.
The folks from 9to5Google have some exclusive pictures and videos of the new Nexus, but we aren’t learning anything new quite yet aside from a brief look at the boot screen, and the slightly tweaked lockscreen. The video is extremely brief, like 12 seconds, and the second is 3 seconds long with swearing and loud music.
So far we’re not exactly sure what’s going on here, or what to think of the leak, but it’s clear this is spotted at some sort of party or concert. The leakster claims it was sitting there being charged at a bar unsupervised, and he managed to grab a few pictures and video but couldn’t do much else. We’re not buying that story though.
So far we’ve gathered plenty of details from the leaked video by Google as well as the FCC filing. Which revealed almost everything, so all we need now is for Google to drop an event release date where we’ll get Android 4.4 KitKat and the new LG Nexus 5. If all goes as planned it will sport a 5-inch 1080p HD display, thin LG G2-like bezels, a 13 megapixel OIS camera, and the Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
The leak today doesn’t give us anything new, really, but at least we know it is in the wild and coming soon. Get excited folks.
