Nexus 5 press image

Although we can’t yet say with 100% certainty, there are plenty of rumors and speculation pointing that today will in fact be the day that Google officially unveils the Nexus 5, Android 4.4 KitKat and perhaps a few other surprises. The wait has a been a long one filled with plenty of leaks – and we aren’t done yet. It seems that some new screenshots have now surfaced giving us an inside look at the Nexus 5, literally.

From the battery to the mainboard, the camera and the sides, this seems to be the first full Nexus 5 tear-down to hit the web. Considering we seem to already know just about everything in terms of the Nexus 5’s specs, the tear-down doesn’t really reveal anything new, but the pics are still pretty cool and worth a quick look.

For those that need a reminder, the Nexus 5 is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 4.96-inch full HD display, 16/32GB storage, a 2,300 mAh battery, 8MP camera with OIS, LTE, NFC and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

With further ado, let’s jump in and take a look at the leaked tear down photos:

While a few photos of the Nexus 5 internals isn’t nearly as exciting as an actual announcement, at least it should tide us over a bit longer while we wait to see what the day brings. Here’s to hoping the wait isn’t much longer!
