Google recently released a video that may have shown the new Nexus device, reportedly called the LG Nexus 5. We do not know if this was accidentally leaked or a little teaser, either way, Google has taken down the video, pointing at the possibility of an accidental leak.
The video only had about two seconds of the LG Nexus 5, but this was enough to spot and slow motion the video to show the device size and design – now Yugatech Renders has put together the build of the LG Nexus 5.
It does take some design features from the LG G2, most notably, the lack of bezels. Thankfully we do not have the back buttons present on the LG G2, although the render seems to have missed all buttons on the sides, unless they are sunk into the smartphone.
The camera is an exciting feature with a rather large sensor and single-LED flash. The Nexus 4 came with an average camera and Google still needs to work on the stock camera UI for Jelly Bean 4.2, we find it a little clunky.
Of course the main attraction of this smartphone will be the newest version of Android, called KitKat 4.4. For about a year now we have heard of Key Lime Pie, but it seems Google wants to make another small update before the big push to KLP.
KitKat has two main goals, according to leaked reports on the new OS. The first is to make Android compatible for even the lowest end devices, removing the Android update fragmentation. The second is to make battery life triple on the smartphone, we have already seen part of this on Android 4.3.
