Just when we thought it can’t get much better than this, or this, or this, and that the Nexus 5 holds no secrets anymore, the next “pure Google phone” has been turned upside down in a video. For seven full minutes. This, my friends, is the mother of all leaks, not last week’s story.
Of course, there’s nothing really groundbreaking or spectacular that the clip reveals, since the spec sheet in its entirety has already been uncovered and its external appearance has stopped being a secret weeks ago.
But who can turn their eyes away from such a long, extensive and comprehensive early hands-on? The hardware is detailed once again, a number of apps are shown on camera, both new and old, and on top of it all, you can catch more than a few glimpses of KitKat’s new user interface, its responsiveness and raw speed.
Before you even start, yes, I’m fully aware there’s no kind of Nexus branding on the phone’s outside. And the device on the whole looks, well, a little unpolished. But that’s likely because we’re dealing with a pre-release prototype that wasn’t meant to become a YouTube star. Not so early at least.
Bottom line, the final, commercial Google/LG Nexus 5 flavor will not look exactly like this, but pretty darn close. The Android 4.4 version shown on video is apparently also an earlier, unpolished, unfinished build, so a number of last-minute tweaks and fine tunings are to be expected.
