The Nexus 5 has been an elusive device, but people have managed to get a bit of information on it. The first real photo of the LG device showed up in the Kit Kat statue unveiling video made by Google itself. Someone was holding it, showing the back of the phone with a large camera ring.
Next, we saw the device pass through the FCC. Though there were no photos, it did show an image with a similarly shaped camera. It was all lining up for us; all we needed were some good (bad) shots by someone who managed to get some alone time with the device. That day has come.
These new photos of the Nexus 5 seem to line up perfectly with older information, but they also go beyond that and show the device turning on. There are also two short videos of the Nexus 5 in action, though we don’t see any noticeable changes in software.
The story behind it is said to be a Googler left this device unattended at a bar while charging, when some employee of the bar managed to snag these shots and videos. This would explain why the person taking the video didn’t know the password. Hopefully it wasn’t taken. What do you think of the device? Are you happy that the back isn’t made of glass?
