Nexus 5 appears at Google's Android KitKat unveiling

The next-gen Nexus smartphone is spotted at Google HQ, and it looks like LG is the father once again

The Google Nexus 5 has put in an early appearance, in the hands of a Google employee at the reveal of the Android 4.4 KitKat statue.

Spotted in a YouTube video by eagle-eyed reddit users, the Nexus 5 appears to be very similar in design to the Asus-made Nexus 7, with large black 'Nexus' text running across the back in landscape orientation, along with a black ring surrounding the camera lens.

An LG logo is also clearly visible at the bottom of the phone, implying that it'll be building the Nexus 5 – and that Google and LG's relationship willl last another year at least.

It looks larger than the current 4.7in Nexus 4 (the phone on the right above), suggesting that it has a 5in display, while reddit users are keeping their fingers crossed for a device based on the LG G2.

Given the G2's gorgeous 5in 1080p display, huge 3,000mAh battery, quad-core innards and 13MP camera, we can't say we blame them.
