Nexus 5 Featured in 7-Minute Video Hands-on

By - Source: via Engadget | B 10 comments

Nexus fans, feast your eyes on this.

We've already seen plenty of the Nexus 5 in terms of leaked photos and specs. However, you can now see the phone in all its glory thanks to a new leaked video that cropped up online over the weekend. If you're eager to see the upcoming Nexus device from every angle, the video below should scratch that itch quite nicely.

gn5 hands on

The device is expected to launch later this month, along with the latest version of Android 4.4. The video above is courtesy of French retailer Club SFR Smartphones. The original has since been set to private but Engadget points to the above rip from YouTube user Enaze Uddin

Previous rumors regarding the Nexus 5 have called it the largest Nexus phone yet, with a screen measuring more than 5 inches. There's also talk of a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM and, of course, KitKat. In the video above, the 'About Phone' screen lists KeyLimePie as the Android version, which suggest this is an older prototype. Unfortunately, the person shooting the video doesn't scroll down far enough for us to get a look at the CPU or memory powering the phone. Still, at the rate information about this phone is leaking, we won't have to wait long for official confirmation on specs.

    At this point Googles announcement could just be a 30 second clip saying "Yeah, you guys already know literally every spec of this phone, here it is, enjoy!". So many leaks.
    I'm excited though, I want to replace my Nexus S with this.

    The specs are no longer rumours... the device's manual has been leaked, revealing every tech spec about the phone.

    If the rumors are true about a $400 version with 32GB of storage and 3000 mah battery, this thing just became the best smartphone value ever. None of the criticisms of the Nexus 4 hold true here, namely the lack of LTE and limited storage.

    Hopefully it doesn't suffer from the same supply issues as the nexus 4, being sold out in minutes is ridiculous. Definitely want a large battery and more storage.

    Even inside Google it was key lime pie until a month or so ago. Every leak has been that way. It will be changed for the public release. This leak is the real thing.

    The phone is a prototype. Obviously an earlier version of the device.
