LG Nexus 5 hands-on photo leak 1

The trickle of LG Nexus 5 leaks has apparently turned into a downpour, as another set of images that purportedly show off the unannounced Android 4.4 smartphone have made their way online today. Posted to Google+ by user Anton Kuznetsov, the photos show a device that looks fairly similar to the Nexus 5 units that've leaked in the past, including the large camera housing and Nexus branding that stretches across its backside. An image of the phone's lock screen includes the white status bar icons that are expected to be included with KitKat.

Today's photos don't really reveal much in the way of new information about LG and Google's new Nexus, but hey, I'm not one to turn down the opportunity to get another peek at an unannounced smartphone. So far the Nexus 5's rumored spec sheet includes a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2300mAh battery and 4G LTE connectivity. There's no word yet on when the device will launch or how much it'll cost when it does, but the recent increase in leaks certainly makes it feel like an official announcement could be getting close.
