LG Nexus 5 Appears on FCC Filing Document

LG Nexus 5With newer rumors and leaks, it is becoming clearer that the next Nexus smartphone will come out of LG’s manufacturing facilities. And finally, that has been confirmed. New documents released by FCC show a trove of images detailing a new device that looks quite similar to the one shown on a leaked clip last week.

The official filling clearly details the full-assembled Nexus 5 and it confirms the presence of large camera module. Apparently, the device lacks the Nexus branding, but that’s not unusual for a device going through testing phase.

Classified as “Class 2 Permissive Change”, the filing may hint that the Nexus 5 is actually the variant of the LG G2. As a matter of fact, the original LG Optimus G became the basis of the earlier Nexus 4. We have seen that Nexus devices were actually variants of flagship devices released by different manufacturers. The Nexus S was a variant of Samsung Galaxy S and the Galaxy Nexus was actually a modified Samsung Galaxy S2.

The main difference with the LG G2 is likely the software version with Android 4.4 Kit Kat, but as a reminder the LG G2 offers 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
