LG ‘Nexus 5’ Passes Through The FCC
We first caught a glimpse of the much-anticipated Nexus 5 at the Android KitKat statue unveiling last week, and now a device matching its description has made its way through the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). In a series of external images attached to the filing, we can gain a relatively clear view of the back, sides and front of this upcoming LG-manufactured handset.
The documentation doesn’t reveal much about the internals of the device, in actual fact it doesn’t reveal anything at all. However, we do know that the handset will pack a variety of different connectivity options, including: GSM 850/900/1800/1900, EDGE Class 12, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, HSDPA 21.1Mbps (Category 14), HSUPA 5.76Mbps, Bluetooth Class 1, Version 4.0 LE+EDR, and 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi.
The photos display a black-version of the ‘Nexus 5,’ which looks to be fairly similar to the current Nexus 4. The pictures reveal that the power button is located on the left-hand side of the device, whilst the volume rocker is embedded on the right-hand side.
There also appears to be a slightly peculiar window visible at the top of the device, however, we have little information suggesting what this is or could be used for at this stage. Although, the suggestion that it is a cut out so the FCC can pry open the device more easily does sound somewhat feasible.
