While we’re still waiting for Google to officially unveil the Nexus 5 (as well as Android 4.4 KitKat), one lucky soul over at Overclockers seems to have gotten their hands on the device. User Nickyyy claimed to have received stock of the device, potentially for a shop he or she works at. When asked to tell more, they simply responded with the photo you see below.

It appears to be a Nexus 5 in the flesh, with the device looking to be going through the boot process (unless that’s just the typical protective plastic with a Nexus 5 logo on it). Off to the left of it is a box that looks Google-y enough to make this leak believable. There isn’t much else that can be learned from such a simple photo, but the leakster mentioned we should be seeing it in “the next few days.”

They wouldn’t say much more than that, unfortunately, but we have more than enough information about the device itself. We should be getting a 5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi ac and NFC.

As you can see we know nearly everything there is to know about this device, except one thing — when, where, and how much. We know we’re might close (otherwise Google wouldn’t have updated all their apps to work with KitKat at the same exact time). Get on it, Google!
