It seems Google isn’t the only one accidentally listing its upcoming Nexus smartphone online, as a new report reveals that a Canadian mobile carrier put up a page on Facebook for pre-registering the Nexus 5.
As per Android Police Wind Mobile, a Canadian carrier made the Nexus 5 pre-registration page live on Facebook for users to get notified when the device is available, ahead of the official launch, though the pre-registration page did not suggest any details of availability and pricing of the Nexus 5. However, the page has been reportedly taken down after initial reports which say it did reveal a complete specifications list.
We have already seen a number of purported specifications revealed of the upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone, and the latest leak does not add anything new. New leaked specifications are in-line with the earlier leaks and suggest that the Nexus 5 will come with a 4.95-inch full-HD (1080p) IPS LCD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera with OIS and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Connectivity options expected in the smartphone are Wi-Fi, NFC (Android Beam), and Bluetooth 4.0, while the device is likely to come in two storage variants 16GB and 32GB. The alleged device has also been expected to include a host of sensors like ambient light, proximity, pressure as well as accelerometer, compass, notification LED and gyroscope.
In addition, the report has published some images that purportedly reveal piles of Nexus 5 boxed ready to ship in Canada. The Android Police received the images from a user on Neogaf and claims it to be from a LG distribution centre in Canada.
It is expected that the next Nexus smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet would run Android 4.4 KitKat, and that all three are due to be launched at the same event.
