A model alleged to be the Nexus 5 passes through the FCC with a model number LG-D820

A few days ago, we caught a first glance at what might be the Nexus 5 in an Android KitKat unveiling video. Today, a device was caught undergoing testing at FCC bearing a model number LG-D820, which might in fact be the Nexus 5.


Now that the Galaxy Note III and Sony Xperia Z1 are official, it looks like the focus is shifted to the Nexus 5. An FCC filing for a device with a model number LG-D820 shows a back cover which looks very similar to the alleged Nexus 5 seen in the Android KitKat unveiling video. The FCC filing indicates that the device will come with support for GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, and LTE networks, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC. The device was also listed as having LTE, CDMA, and HSPA+ bands for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. A notable absentee is Verizon’s LTE 750 band.


Also indicated is a display of 126.00 mm, which comes close to a 5.0 inches. A reference to MSM8974 was also noted in the documentation, which is nothing but Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800. The software version, which was given as “aosp_hammerhead-userdebugKyeLimePieFACTORYeng.sangjoon84”, indicates Key Lime Pie, but that is likely to change considering that the next version of Android is called KitKat. Also indicated in the documentation is a 2,300 mAh battery. There should be much more information regarding the device in the coming weeks.
