Nexus 5 video shows KitKat early build.


Recommended Posts

This morning a lovely piece of video has surfaced

showing the LG-made Nexus 5 from all angles, complete with an early version of KitKat called Key

Lime Pie. This device appears to be working with

KitKat, but as youll find in the menu pull-down the

user attains right off the bat, hell be heading down

to the version of the software released to Googles

developers before the name change. Youll also find this devices software moving swiftly Buttery

smoothness in full effect.

A lot of the changes made in the latest builds of

Android 4.4 KitKat do not appear here in this

particular hands-on video. Youll find the icons too

to be less-than finalized, looking a lot more like

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Its the hardware and the

quickness with which the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is working, therefor, that you may

want to pay the most attention to most in this early Nexus 5 vision for the future.

Up front, this device works with a lovely and

massive display. On the back, youll find a large

camera lens, likely there for optical image

stabilization, and a complete lack of the word

NEXUS. The early nature of this hardware build is

emphasized by the fact that NOT FOR SALE is ingrained in the back of this smartphone. This is just a bit different from the Italian leak we saw earlier this week. Youll also find some odd locations of parts here and

there. There is a single SIM card slot on the upper

right-hand side, a couple of speaker grills with big

holes at the bottom, and a microUSB port at the

bottom as well, right up against the back panel

cover for the battery within. Its not yet known if this device will allow the full removal of its battery

or not.

The right side of this device works with a simple

power button right above the SIM card slot, and at

least one microphone hole (up top) near the single

standard headphone jack. This piece of hardware

continues to appear to be based on the LG G2 in kind, with a slightly modified build to make it

Googles own. Have a peek at the timeline below for more

information on this upcoming release along with a

whole lot more information on Android 4.4 KitKat as
