Videos Leak of Nexus 5 in Action, Pictures Too

Nexus 5

Two videos hit YouTube today, briefly (we stress briefly) showing off Google’s upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone in action. From the videos, we can watch the device be turned on, then the user playing with the N5’s lockscreen. The other video shows off the device’s screen-off animation, which looks to be the same as Jelly Bean’s (retro TV). 

Along with the videos, three pictures were also taken of the Nexus 5. One gives us a very crisp look at the device’s backside, while the other shows off the front. The third image captures a look at the boot animation, which appears to be the same the Google Play Edition device’s boot animation. As we can see, the device is clearly made by LG, which goes along with everything else we have seen from leaked images to reports out of the FCC.

As you may see and hear in the videos, it’s quite clear that the device was being played with at some high school party or at a bar. There is loud music, loud voices and is that a bong I spot?

From the amount of info we are seeing leaked, it’s safe to say we may be getting pretty close to an official unveiling.

  • chris420o

    well…ima hold out for a n4 remake…i dont want a 5′ screen and i tv remote length phone

    • Jon-L Innocent-Dolor

      Dimensions actually physically smaller than the n4..but I get it if having a larger display bothers you though…

  • chris420o

    looks narrow…but wtf is up with that top n bottom bezel…the g2 is so small why couldtn this?

    • mjmedstarved

      Well, the notification bar is black.. and so is the navigation bar….. so you might not be perceiving it in it’s actuality, if you catch my drift.

      • chris420o

        Zoom in on the front pic u see where screen meets boarder

        • mjmedstarved

          Hmm.. I guess I see your point but, you need SOMEWHERE to rest your thumb……..

  • Steve B

    I’m liking that they switched the ICS/JB blue to white in the notification icons. It was a needed change.

  • duckmanbill

    Please come to verizon…. Plleeeaaassseeee

  • MrWicket

    ear piece is interesting, looks like a circle in the front facing pic.

  • Mike Hilal

    Looks laggy

  • Deez Nutz

    Sorry if I offend anyone, but these videos are the equivalent of a girl just licking the tip.

    • Well said, where are the balls deep videos

  • StankyChikin

    Guessing that big ass number on the back gives away which employees phone that is?

    • duckmanbill

      would be funny if it’s that indian dude again.

  • Blake Curtis

    nooooooo……It’s Plastic

    • duckmanbill

      what do you expect for <$300? People hated the glass back of the N4 anyway.

      • JohanV

        I loved the glass back.

        • Jeff

          The glass back is what kept me from getting the N4. If the N5 had a fragile back like that I would have decided on a Moto X. Seeing that it’s likely plastic puts the N5 back in the race for me.

        • Steve B

          People loved the look but hated the frailty.

  • dannydarko

    I noticed the phone Google said wasn’t the new Nexus is.But, most importantly they didn’t know the pattern lock in the video. Is this Another lost phone at the bar scenario debacle nudge, nudge, wink ,wink.,

    • duckmanbill

      yep. another lost phone apparently.

  • crazed_z06

    Thanks for hypebeasting me into buying a Moto X, Droid Life!

    j/k.. im getting a GN3 tho

  • So, where the heck is the speaker(s) on that thing??

    • John Kiser

      Bottom mounted like the g2, the earpiece grill is also the circular disc that is front and center on the device…. (i find this interesting since it’s wider top and bottom wise than most phones would have but shorter side to side, it might lead to more focused clearer sound.. hard to say… )

  • Ryan Stewart

    Unless there was s some new magic in this one I’m not sure if I can be tempted from my N4. Its still an awesome phone.

  • Dave S.

    Anyone have any insight as to what the large ring around the camera lens is all about? When the first leaks came out, it looked like maybe the lens itself was larger…but now it looks like an average size lens with some large metal ring…? Is it a light sensor, perhaps?

    • Flat_Stanley

      I bet it’s for nothing. Aesthetics. Just for looks.

    • John Kiser

      Look at the verizon variant of the g2 (posted on this site and i posted it above as well) It has the same ring and near the same size sensor. OIS ends up having a different housing that is metal and somewhat mechanical to move it and google may of liked the overall aesthetic from the verizon variant of the phone. If you ask me it kinda looks cool (i’d wage the camera will be between 8 – 10 mp.. keep in mind that doesn’t mean it’ll take bad photos at all in low light and low light is the telling point… The Nexus 4 takes fine indoor lighted and outdoor photos for most people)
