We've previously reported on the numerous spec and image leaks for Google follow up to the Nexus 4, but now it's been captured on video in the wild.
Check it out, and wish they weren't filming it on what looks like an iPhone 4.
Some things to note here include the fact that this pre-production model doesn't include any fancy Nexus branding (which would be a shame) and also looks to be running an older version of the Android OS. The recent additions to YouTube (like dual window searching) are nowhere to be seen and the interface is definitely a little retro, despite the fact that the OS version is named Key Lime Pie - which was the in development name for Kitkat, ie: version 4.4.
For some reason the user doesn't open the camera app (which is the first thing I do with a new handset) so maybe it's not fully live on this model. You can get a glimpse of the massive camera lens on the back of the device, with a profile at least three times bigger than that on the Nexus 4. Given that the leaks to date have suggested it'll once more house an 8 MP camera, we're curious to see why the bigger lens is necessary. Hopefully it's an overall improvement in optics, given the muddy and slow results last time around.
The profile looks much the same as its predecessor with a larger 5-inch HD screen and overall its a very desirable piece of kit, especially if the leaked specs and price are to be believed.
The Google Nexus 5 and Kitkat are rumoured to be announced by Google on Oct. 15, 2013. Stay tuned for more.
