Nexus 5 Hands On Video Showcases Hardware and Android 4.4

A new Nexus 5 video is now available showing off Android 4.4 software and the Nexus 5 hardware. The Nexus 5 hands on video offers a close look at the Nexus 5 design and dives into the Android 4.4 KitKat update to show more details.

The Android settings page shows KeyLimePie, which we’ve seen in other leaked pre-release builds of Android 4.4 so that alone is not enough to discredit the video despite what some YouTube comments say.

We expect the Nexus 5 announcement today, though the actual time remains up in the air as Google has yet to make an official announcement.

In addition to showing off the Nexus 5 hardware which we’ve seen numerous times we get a closer look at the software which reveals the Nexus 5 16GB will ship with about 12.5GB of free storage for apps and movies. Some Android devices ship with much less available storage thanks to manufacturer customizations.

The video shows off the camera app with Photosphere included as well as a YouTube video to demo the HD display on the Nexus 5. Other demos include loading Google Earth and a variety of Google apps that show the capabilities of the device.

In addition to this hands on video, a Reddit user is answering questions about the new Nexus 5, sharing the few remaining secrets Google had up its sleeve. This includes the ability to control the Nexus 5 with your voice, even when the display is off, like the Moto X and Droid Ultra.

If Google announces the Nexus 5 today, it could go on sale in the Google Play Store by tomorrow morning. There may not be Nexus 5 pre-orders as users who get in first will likely see their Nexus 5 ship within a day, which could put the Nexus 5 on doorsteps early next week.

The Nexus 5 is expected in 16GB and 32GB models with a starting price of $349 for the 16GB and an expected $399 for the 32GB model. In addition to the Google Play store, look for retailers like Best Buy may sell the Nexus 5 and T-Mobile may also carry it soon after the announcement.

    Such a bad a$$ phone! Even though I just bought one 20 minutes ago, I didn’t realize how thin it was until the video. Thanks for the sneak peak. Can’t wait to get it!
