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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
