LG-made Google Nexus 5 caught on camera

You might now know or care about the FCC, but the fact that all new handsets in the US have to go through the Federal Communications Commission means we tend to get advance notice and details of upcoming launches. That's how this image of the LG Nexus 5 came into the public domain.

According to Phone Scoop, it was being given the once over in regard to a 'class 2 permissive change', which is apparently the kind of thing that is applied for close to the release of a phone. With that in mind, you wouldn't bet against the latest Google phone making an official appearance in the next month.

The FCC shot, especially the camera, look incredibly similar to the one spotted at the recent Android KitKat launch, which adds more weight to the previously snapped phone being the real deal.

When it does, previous FCC filings point to a phone with Qi wireless charging capabilities inside of the back cover, 4G connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 4.96-inch display. A Snapdragon 800 SoC processor is also thought to be present, along with Android 4.4 KitKat, the software it will showcase.

As we said, October seems likely, which is a year on the from the Nexus 4. Hopefully the affordable price tag will follow suit too.
