lg-nexus-5So the cat is out of the bag — as in completely out of the bag. As in head to toe. Google’s much anticipated sequel of last year’s Nexus 4 will most definitely be built in cahoots with LG, being also likely headed towards all four major wireless carriers in the states.

The LG Nexus 5 has first been spotted in an Android 4.4 KitKat promo video (by sheer chance… or not), being subsequently caught trying to sneak past the FCC under the D820/D821 codename. That particular flavor of the N5 supported an array of connectivity options, including LTE on several bands, but oddly it appeared to be friendly only to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile’s frequencies and not also with Verizon.

But fret not, as Big Red might actually get a special version of the Nexus 5, known right now under the model number VS980. What’s interesting is the FCC internal docs of this fellow seem to reveal an exterior design much more similar to LG’s G2, so we can assume, though we can’t be sure, that the N5 on Verizon will look a little different compared with the other three networks’ model.

Then again, as far as hardware is concerned, chances are the D820, D821 and VS980 will look like Siamese twins, all packing the same quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB RAM, 2,300 mAh battery and Android 4.4. Oh, yeah, and a Full HD screen measuring close to 5 inches. Maybe even a fingerprint scanner. Exciting times are coming, guys, so you better get ready for a wild ride!
