This leak may be similar to the iPhone 4 fiasco when one Apple engineer left the prototype smartphone in the bar, with the recent LG Nexus 5 leaks, we cannot say this is as big as the iPhone 4, but it still shows us some new features.
The LG Nexus 5 does have a few differences compared to the Nexus 4, including the design with similarities to the LG G2. The front has the very small side bezels, but it looks like it will be packaged in a polycarbonate rubber material with no removable back.
One of the most obvious changes in the camera, with a rather odd design looking somewhat like a disc spinning. We are unsure if this has any purpose other than design aesthetic, either way it looks pretty ugly in our view.
We also get our first look at Android KitKat 4.4 home screen, consisting of the clock in the right hand side with the pattern to unlock. The leakers could not successively guess the pattern, but nevertheless it is a big leak, showing lots of new features.
KitKat will fix major issues with battery life on Android device including new brightness features, it will also be compatible with low-end smartphones, meaning every new smartphone should be able to run Android KitKat.
Google has been rather relaxed when it comes to the LG Nexus 5 leaks, with the official Android KitKat 4.4 reveal video showing a Googler internally using the smartphone and then it passing through the FCC with images.
This is not a major leak in terms of hardware but the software could be exploited if the finder is able to unlock it. Of course this is stealing and we hope the finder returns it to Google, we doubt any tech blog is likely to acquire the phone, as Gizmodo did with the iPhone 4, for $5,000.
