FCC filing confirms Nexus 5

Documents from the US communications agency the FCC have provided the firmest evidence to date that Google is preparing to announce a five-inch Nexus smartphone.

 

According to registration documents, the Google Nexus 5 will come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Bluetooth 4.0, wireless charging and dual-band Wi-Fi.

Previous rumours had suggested that Google may opt for the slightly older and less powerful Snapdragon 600 chipset to keep prices down.

Although it doesn’t say, it is extremely like it will be the first phone to launch running Google’s latest version of Android, KitKat.

The unveiling of the Android 4.4 KitKat statue in the grounds of Google’s headquarters earlier this week gave us what is likely to be our first sighting of the Nexus 5.

In the video – since removed by Google – an employee can be seen filming the unveiling using a previously unknown Nexus handset.

From the size of the device, its horizontal Nexus branding and the feint LG logo at the bottom of the handset, it is more than possible this is the Nexus 5.

Rumours began emerging last month, suggested that Google has asked LG to make a five-inch Nexus smartphone based on its recently launched LG G2 handset.

With a new version of Android on the way, and the first year anniversary of the launch of the Nexus 4 next month, we’d bet Google will be officially announcing the Nexus 5 very soon.
