Just as the news surfaced that the Nexus 4 is no longer available in the Google Play Store and will not be restocked by Google, the Nexus 5 appears in more images. A Google employee allegedly confided to a bartender when he requested a place for him to charge his device and lo and behold, we got a few pictures and some short videos. As well, some bonus benchmark technical details are also now available.
The photos of the alleged Nexus 5 are consistent with all previous images and details that have been surfacing in regards to the design. With some short videos available as well, we get a glimpse into the lock screen that will be in front of Android 4.4 KitKat.
On the back of the unit, a sticker with the serial number of the device and a “NOT FOR SALE” emblem is visible. Was the Google employee negligent here? Or did he, among the other “leaks” of the device, act just as Google wanted him to and let the photos be released to the public.
It is expected that Google will introduce the newest Nexus device in less than a month, along with Android 4.4 KitKat. Yesterday, we did the low-down of everything swirling around this device.

Leaked Technical Specs
As well, some other Nexus 5 goodness was spotted over at the GFXBench benchmark page under the name LG Hammerhead. The overview shows a smartphone with a 1090p HD display and a Snapdragon 800 processor fitted with four cores and 2.2 GHz. Android 4.4 is still being referred to as Key Lime Pie, as we can see in the table below. In addition, there are two units that are passed as D820_S LG and LG-D720_C. These will probably be two different variants of the Nexus 5, either with different memory sizes or LTE capability.
