Nexus 5 video and images show KitKat in action

There's likely to be a new Google flagship phone launching this week. But in light of all the leaks, you wonder if Google and LG should bother.

Of course, they should. We love a proper hands-on and a lovely press render to seal the deal, which is what we're likely to get in the next day or so. For now, let's enjoy the latest snippets about a phone that has leaked like a sieve.

First up, Italian site Tutto Android has some early hands-on shots of the phone running Android 4.4 (aka KitKat), highlighting the latest unlock screen, a home screen and the apps on the screen. In turn, those screens shows a little more when you have a closer look, like a Tap to Pay mode in the settings if you fancy using the NFC connectivity and some battery and power management functionality. Other changes seem largely cosmetic though. But we would expect the odd trick when the phone is shown off by Google (hopefully) tomorrow.

If that's not enough for you, how about a video of the smartphone in action? Yes, one of those has leaked too in a 7-minute hands-on. Yes, seven minutes of someone waving the latest Google phone around. It's possibly an earlier prototype model with 'Key Lime Pie' listed as the operating system, bit it does give a decent overview of the phone and the operating system in action and if you are intrigued by the new launch, you can view it here.

When it does launch, a service manual leak has previously pointed to a 4.95-inch Full HD 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera plus 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 2300mAh battery, wireless charging capabilities and NFC connectivity.

Stay tuned for the official launch coverage in a matter of hours.
