LG Nexus 5 specifications take shape with renders aplenty

It's not often that a device is so highly anticipated that more than one person creates a freestyle rendering of it before its even confirmed to exist - but that's just what's happened this week with the LG-made Nexus 5. This device has been tipped to be taking on the specifications of the LG G2 for the most part, and has appeared quite possibly on purpose, but supposedly on accident - inside a teaser video for Android 4.4 KitKat.

This may very well be the next-generation Nexus device as it does indeed have the word Nexus written on it - though in a bit of a cut with what may be some black tape over the logo for secrecy.

LG has unveiled one of the most interesting looking TVs I've seen a long time at IFA 2013. The TV is a 55-inch OLED set called the Gallery OLED TV 55EA8800. This TV certainly isn't the first OLED set we've seen from LG, but it is the first to have the cool picture frame design.
