Google’s new Nexus 5 is edging closer to reality. After an image of a staff member apparently using the device at Mountain View was leaked, the handset now appears to have gone through US regulatory body, the FCC.
We say appears, because there’s only an LG codename to go by. Seemingly dubbed the D820 in filings, that tidbit alone isn’t enough to convince that this is the Nexus 5.
However, pics of the back cover, filed with the FCC, resemble the Nexus 5 we clocked in the leaked snap from earlier this week.
Surely that’s too much of a coincidence, especially as LG has just rolled out its own-branded Android flagship, the G2.
Even more interestingly, the device’s specs include 7-band LTE, as well as NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. The current Nexus 4 doesn’t have 4G smarts, but it certainly looks like its successor will.
Google has recently slashed the cost of the Nexus 4 as it looks to clear stock ahead of a possible update.
