Google made the Nexus 5 official a few days ago, although this was not intended to happen. On September 3, Google accidentally revealed its upcoming flagship smartphone. A completely new Nexus phone can be spotted in the Android KitKat unveiling video, with the LG logo on its back visible as well.
More than the above, a new device known as LG D820 appeared at FCC, its specifications matching most of the Nexus 5 rumors we heard so far. The handset features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 4.96-inch Full HD IPS display, 13 MP camera and measures 5.1X2.7 inches.
The FCC filing also revealed that support for virtually all carriers and networks is present, including 4G LTE for Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. Unfortunately, it seems the Nexus 5 may not offer support for Verizon 4G LTE band 13.
Additional features of the Nexus 5 include wireless charging, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi connectivity with WiFi hotspot, GPS, NFC and more. Nothing is official yet, but the LG Nexus 5 is likely to be announced next month.
