Two LG Nexus 5 versions have apparently received Wi-Fi certification – previously the LG-D820/LG-D821 smartphones have been seen in FCC and Bluetooth SIG documentation.

This time around we’re looking at two LG-D820 versions, the LG-D820_C and the LG-D820_S, although it’s not clear what the difference between the two devices is at this time.

While these particular model numbers are yet to be confirmed to be Nexus 5 handsets, we’ll note that the Wi-Fi certification documents mention that we’re looking at two LG smartphones.

What the documents also reveal (see Source links below) is that the two Nexus 5 versions will have dual band Wi-Fi support (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and offer Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac and Wi-Fi Direct support.

The LG Nexus 5 is rumored to be unveiled on October 14 alongside Android 4.4 KitKat, although Google is yet to actually issue press invites for said event.

That said, we’ll remind you that we’re seeing more and more Nexus 5 leaks as we get closer to the phone’s announcement – just yesterday, we saw videos and pictures of an alleged Nexus 5 test unit left unsupervised in a bar by a Google employee.
