Google inadvertently reveals the Nexus 5 in its KitKat statue video
To showcase its big Android 4.4 KitKat announcement, Google posted a video of the chocolate statute as it was unveiled on the front lawn of its headquarters. What was a supposed to be lovely tribute video to the next version of Android may have become the source of an embarrassing Nexus 5 leak for Google.
As spotted by 9to5 Google, the unveiling video, which is now a private YouTube clip, showed Google employees taking video of the statue ceremony using their phones. A close-up grab from the video reveals an unknown Nexus device, which is likely the upcoming Nexus 5.
The backplate of the phone has the same horizontal Nexus logo that is seen on the latest Nexus 7 tablet and has a camera lens that is much bigger than the one on the Nexus 4. It also appears to be a larger phone, suggesting Google may be super-sizing its upcoming Nexus device. Check out the photo above and chime in with your thoughts on this inadvertent leak in the comments.
