Nexus 5 spotted in the wild

Nexus 5 spotted in the wild

The upcoming successor for the last year’s LG-made Nexus 4, the Nexus 5, is really starting to hype up. After the little peek it had during the Android 4.4 KitKat launch, it now shows up in a bar.

The story behind this little encounter is very familiar. A Google employee apparently left the device unsupervised while it was charging inside a bar. A bar employee then took the opportunity to snap some photos and do a quick hands-on of what is reported to be the yet-to-be announced LG-made Nexus 5. This aligns with previous leaks so this could be it.

At the back, it has the horizontal “Nexus” branding, like with the new Nexus 7, a pretty large camera module and a flash just beneath it. Lastly, since this is an LG-made device, an LG logo can be found at the bottom. To the front, the front-facing camera is present and maybe the large circle beside it is an LED indicator.


The upcoming Google smartphone should be based on the LG G2 that rocks a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, Full HD display and a 13MP camera. The latest and greatest build of Android 4.4 KitKat should be on board when launched.

Release date could be on October 31.

    Tutal, Unsubsidized din lang naman pag dumating yan dito, pweh

    Might as well choose a premium handset with micro SD support

      I totally respect your opinion and this is mine about yours.

      Smartphone battle isn’t mostly between storage. The hek I cant even get my 8gb memory full when it comes to solely content. Though there are demanding apps(which are mostly games) that costs you a ton of internal storage. I believe the 32gb variant of this would mostly fix that even though the usable storage would shring to approx. 25Gb.

      I myself am considering taking this Nexus 5 phone. Why? It a freaking NEXUS phone man. NEXUS products are frontliners of the droid updates. Not to mention you’ll be guaranteed a lifetime of updates.

      I completely agree with XTN! All my recent phones are Nexus and Google Play editions. Nexus phones are cheaper in the long run because you won’t need to change phones as often. The Google Play editions (I have the HTC One) are worth it too because the hardware is top-notch and Android software updates are very timely. The space on it is plenty even without the expandable memory slot.

      Well, “Better to have, and not need, than to need, and not have.”

      The problem is, one can endlessly deny that they DON’T NEED that much storage space when the truth is …they all WANT it, I find it rather hypocritical from somebody to say ” hek I cant even get my 8gb memory full” or ”Nexus phones are cheaper in the long run because you won’t need to change phones as often”….come on guys, magpakatotoo na lang kayo.

      Upgrade itch excuses no one.
      I call that pure SOURGRAPING

      Who wouldn’t want an option to expand their phone’s storage?

      G2 or Note 3 … ftw
      and fukk Google and for shoving CLOUD down people’s throats

    • Nino says:

      No need to be hostile. I for one is just expressing my own experience and opinion. If you absolutely must have expandable memory then go for brands that offer it. Others will be fine without one. Kanya-kanyang preferences lang yan.

    Buti nilagay nila sa gilid yung camera, baka pwede yung Olloclip.

    Ang nexus, ke phone or tablet, ay spartan,what I mean is everyday tsinelas. Specs wise, premium, but it skimps on the fancy casing, like carbon fiber or titanium like blackberry or vertu, respectively. Google nexus opts for the cheaper plastic like entry nokia and iphone 5s casing. Nope its not polycarbonate like samsung. But at least u got the nexus specs hardware. Its also skips sd card support. All in all to make it affordable, if not a marketting gimmick to crave for higher priced models, yet with hi specs. Coupled with untouch android, it delivers the best everyday tsinelas experience. Try it, am sure u wont regret it as a secondary android next to ur fancied whatsoever.

  6. I am disappointed with this device. It’s just another mid range handset. Why get this over the G2? No image stabilisation either with the Nexus?
