The first leaked photo of the Google Nexus 5, follow-up to the Google Nexus 4 smartphone, has surfaced on the internet. According to previous reports, the handset will be based on the new LG G2. This new report claims that the handset will be powered by Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie).

TechTastic, a Dutch site, is responsible for the leak and was spotted by PhoneArena. According to the site, “Today we’re especially pleased to report that the very first image of the Nexus 5 by LG might have leaked, courtesy of an unnamed LG tester.

“According to Dutch publication TechTastic, the above image reveals the back of the Google Nexus 5.”

In terms of specs, the site says, “The source also provides some intriguing facts about the specs sheet of the handset, claiming that the G2’s Snapdragon 800 will make way for the Snapdragon 600, while the 13MP camera of LG’s upcoming flagship is said to be scaled down to 10 megapixels, all of which is supposed to allow Google to keep the price of the Nexus 5 as close as possible to the level of affordability presented by last-year’s Nexus 4.”

About Android 5.0, it says, “What’s even more interesting is that the Nexus 5 is said to introduce the next major Android update - 5.0 Key Lime Pie.”
