Info on the supposed Nexus 5 started during the announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat as one of the Google Employee was using a never been seen Nexus handset, much bigger than the current Nexus 4.
Personally, I’ll be waiting for every news around this new Smartphone, especially with the fact that it comes with the hype of the KitKat Android build.
Moving on, the LG-D820 is said to have an “MSM 8974″ processor which is in layman’s term is the Snapdragon 800. It was also reported that it will go with a “aosp_hammerhead” build name and runs on Google’s latest Android version (4.4).
Putting them in a virtual side to side comparison with the Nexus 4, the supposed Nexus 5 is a tad smaller (131.9mm as compared to the Nexus 4′s 133.9mm) and a bit thinner at 68.2mm. Screen size comes in at 126mm, or around 4.96 inches and will incorporate a 2300mAh non-removalable battery.
Previous statements reveal that the LG-D820 has just passed through FCC; leaked photos show the device’s back plate with an NFC antenna and Qi wireless charging details. What’s more surprising is that the skeletal frame looks strikingly similar to the one we saw during the Google event.
The device is also said to support a number of radio bands, including pentaband HSPA+ 42mbps on 850, 900, 1700, 1900 and 2100MHz, 7-band LTE on Band 2, 4, 5, 17, 25, 26 and 41, EVDO revA (CDMA) on 800 and 1900MHz.
