Nexus 5 innards spilled with extended LG document leak

Nexus 5 innards spilled with extended LG document leak

This weekend a document was spilled in part through the sharing platform Scribd, showing off the LG-made Nexus 5 in part. This document was lost for a day or two, thanking in part a couple of 404-ed webpage sources, but today we've been passed a collection of images and snaps from another internal document from what we must assume is LG's registration of the Nexus 5 smartphone on its way to final approval. Here you'll find some solid details on the device and its connective abilities.

Nexus 5 service manual leaked as LG specs hit the rumor mill

The Nexus 5 rumor mill has just received a 16-wheeler's worth of fresh-cut lumber. According to Android Police, a service manual for the LG-D821 (quite possibly one of the makes and models for the next Google Nexus smartphone) today was leaked and posted to Scribd, spilling a substantial amount of insider information about the upcoming Nexus 5.

Nexus 5 reportedly launching last week of October with specs akin to iPhone 5s

Nexus 5 reportedly launching last week of October with specs akin to iPhone 5s

The much-anticipated Nexus 5 has surfaced in a variety of leaks, including benchmarks and a video. Last month, it was tipped by DigiTimes that the LG handset would be launching on October 14, which was a reasonable date. The folks over at Tech Radar has spoken to a source that says it will be a bit later than that, however, arriving in the last week of this month with specs akin to the iPhone 5s.

Nexus 5 MEMS Lytro camera code a case of mistaken identity

Nexus 5 MEMS Lytro camera code a case of mistaken identity

Through some heavy digging in files sourced from a real-deal Nexus 5 in the wild, sources this week have turned up mention of what they believe was MEMS camera technology in this next-generation smartphone. Using files uncovered by Myce, the folks at Android World appear to have discovered the exact camera module (or at least part of it) that'll be used in Google's next Nexus smartphone. The Sony image sensor imx179 appears in these files, leading the blogsphere to believe - again, sourcing Android World - that they've found a perfect connection to MEMS technology - also used in the Lytro camera.

Nexus 5 hardware photographed: launch imminent

Nexus 5 hardware photographed: launch imminent

In terms of clues leading up to the launch of a product, it would seem that an overly abundant amount of photos, specifications, and business moves by Google have lead the way to the Nexus 5 this past month. What we're seeing today, here on the first of October, is a single photo that lends itself extremely convincingly towards the idea that an LG-made Nexus 5 release is right around the corner. Is this not the same device we've seen in FCC listings and KitKat teasers several times over?

Nexus 7 with LTE resurfaces with AT&T SIM option, more regions

Nexus 7 with LTE resurfaces with AT&T SIM option, more regions

The LTE version of the latest Nexus 7 slate disappeared from the Google Play store yesterday, with it being listed as "Not for sale at this time." Following that earlier today was a tweet from Verizon stating that the tablet wasn't part of their lineup, not allowing it to be activated, and now it has reappeared in Google Play, this time with an AT&T SIM option.

Nexus 5 photographed in a bar: LG G2 to the core

Nexus 5 photographed in a bar: LG G2 to the core

Appearing in the most classic of phone leak locations, the Nexus 5 appears to have popped up in a bar, complete with LG branding on its back. This device rings true as a device we've seen a couple of times before in early testing and/or Google public dogfooding. The specifications of this smartphone are as-yet unknown, but have been tipped to replicate those of the LG G2 rather closely.

Nexus 7 with LTE no longer available through Google Play

Nexus 7 with LTE no longer available through Google Play

Back on September 9, the Nexus 7 with LTE support went up for sale on the Google Play Store, giving buyers an option for those who want a mobile data connection with their slate. Fast-forward one week, and the tablet is no longer available, with the Play Store simply reading a rather ambiguous: "This device is not for sale at this time."

LG Nexus 5 appears as Verizon LG G2 variant at FCC

LG Nexus 5 appears as Verizon LG G2 variant at FCC

There should be little doubt that Google is planning on continuing their Nexus smartphone program well into the future - that much is clear. What's not as clear is their release schedule and manufacturer choices - the pattern we've expected to find appearing several years ago with a new OEM for each device being doused again and again. This week we're seeing further confirmation - thanks to the FCC - that Google may be working with LG once again for their Nexus smartphone line in the Nexus 5 rather than switching over after the Nexus 4 (also made by LG).

LG Nexus 5 specifications take shape with renders aplenty

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. Now the user-made models can pour in.

Nexus 5 could be the LG D820, to sport Snapdragon 800, 5-inch display

Nexus 5 could be the LG D820, to sport Snapdragon 800, 5-inch display

As the dust of IFA slowly settles down, we turn our attention to something that passed us by rather quickly: the appearance of what is allegedly the Nexus 5. Keen observers noted in Google's Android 4.4 KitKat video what seems to be a Nexus smartphone featuring a rear design that has not yet been seen. It seems that that cover has made its way into the FCC as the LG D820.

New Nexus phone spotted in Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling

New Nexus phone spotted in Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling

In today's obligatory unveiling video of the new Android statue for Google's lawn full of statues of desserts, a new Google smartphone has appeared. 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. This device looks to be replicating the look (and perhaps the feel) of the 2013 edition of the Nexus 7, what with its massive back-facing camera land and horizontal logo (which is also massive).
