First photos taken with Nexus 5 posted on Google+, quickly removed

    Nexus 5

    The first photos taken with a Nexus 5 and uploaded to Google+ have been discovered, but they were quickly taken down.

    As you can see from the EXIF data in the images below, the camera used to take this particular image was an 8-megapixel shooter found on board the LG Nexus 5.

    Assuming that they aren’t fakes – and considering the fact that they have been removed from Google+ since being discovered – these photos seem to indicate that the Google Nexus 5 is coming soon, not that this is a secret anymore.

    We have already seen a lot of Nexus 5 details get leaked, from FCC documentation, to manuals, to alleged sightings in the wild and to press renders, which were conveniently confirmed by Google’s Play Store Nexus 5 accidental listing.

    The phone is expected to arrive in the following days, and we could see it unveiled tomorrow at Google’s special Google+ event.

    That said, we’ll be back with more official news about the handset in the coming days, assuming Google is indeed ready to properly introduce it. As for the camera of the device, we’ll put it through its paces once we’ll review the handset for you.

      I hope that photo was compressed because it looks pretty blurry

        Google+ does tend to compress a little if you don’t select upload in original quality

        10 tomatoes – 8 peppers – 1 eggplant – 1 cucumber = 0, which cuincidently is also the number of Nexus’s coming to Verizon, so many hidden messages.
