Nexus 5 leak

A new purported image of the Nexus 5 has hit the web – this time the handset has been photographed in the wild by a user.

A MacRumors forum user has posted more details about his experience with the Nexus 5 alongside an image of the device. Here’s how he described the whole thing:

[quote qtext=”Got to handle the Nexus 5. It is smaller than the G2. Didn’t actually measure it, but holding it in the hand it is smaller. It does feel good holding it. The black back cover feels like my Nexus 7. The screen was ok, didn’t wow me like the Note 3. The bezel is very small.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

When asked to share more details about the device, he basically said he wasn’t able to do so, but he did post the image above:

[quote qtext=”I wish i could. Google is sneaky and has ways to see where the leaks come from. They are funny too. When the phone started up it needs to be updated. Some experimental software stuff and it says you need to guard it like a ninja.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

We have no way of knowing at this time whether the picture is genuine or not, but the device it shows seems to be similar to the Nexus handset seen in that KitKat promo video posted by Google (see second image above) and to that Nexus 5 handset that was reportedly photographed in a bar (third image) – check out the camera and Nexus logo in all three images.

If real, this Nexus 5 leak is the clearest yet, although it’s yet to be confirmed. And yes, it appears there are two Nexus devices in the top image, one on top of the other.
