Even Google can't keep the Nexus 5 a secret anymore.
Google is still keeping us in the dark with regard to the upcoming Nexus 5 handset. Though the company has yet to confirm the product's existence, the device has been well leaked. We've seen everything from FCC documents to walk through videos and now Google itself is leaking information. Today, the phone was spotted on the Play Store.
Google has since pulled the listing but not before it was spotted by numerous people online, including the folks over at Engadget. It seems the phone was only showing up for some people and not others. The listing in question didn't offer any more information on the phone itself, though we have more than enough information on the phone's hardware from previous leaks.
Previous reports have mentioned a screen measuring five inches as well as talk of a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM and, of course, Android KitKat. Thanks to leaked specs from last week, we now know that the Nexus 5 will pack a 4.95-inch 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display, the aforementioned quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (clocked to 2.3GHz), 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel lens up front, the same OIS present on LG's G2, a 2300mAh battery, up to 32 GB of storage, and support for CDMA, GSM, WCDMA, and LTE. Rumors this week pointed to an October 28 unveiling so we don't have long to wait before we see the Nexus 5 for real.
