A few days ago, Google revealed they had gained 1 billion activations on Android and announced the next update for Android would be called KitKat 4.4. To celebrate, they launched a promotional video to show Googlers checking out the big KitKat statue.
The video has since been taken down, due to one Googler videoing the statue with an unknown Nexus device, possibly the LG Nexus 5. Google added fuel to the fire when they decided to take down the video, to make sure less people noticed the smartphone.
Since then, an FCC filing has been added showing what appears to be the LG Nexus 5. It has definitely developed by LG and is a high-end phone with some pretty impressive LTE specs. With LG just launching the LG G2, we do not believe they are in the market for another flagship; unless it is the LG Nexus 5.
Inside the FCC filing, the device has a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 5-inch 1080p display, 2300mAh battery, 7-band LTE (with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint compatibility), WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, NFC and wireless charging. We are a little worried about the 2300mAh battery, seems a little small to power this high-end device.
Google may see KitKat as the solution the battery life problem, Android 4.3 has started to add some features to enhance battery life on Android devices – KitKat is said to be Google’s finest update to make sure longevity on Android devices. KitKat will also be able to run on any Android device, no matter how poor the specs sheet.
It looks like the LG Nexus 5 is getting closer and the Motorola Nexus rumors are fading into thin air. It does intrigue us as to what Motorola is doing with Google now the LG Nexus 5 has been exposed, could it be another Nexus or some new project entirely?
