Android KitKat statue unveiling video may show off the LG Nexus 5

The video generally doesn't have too much of interest in it. It's always fun to see a new Android statue getting set up on the lawn at Mountain View, and the new KitKat statue does look pretty cool. But, the really interesting bit pops up at around the 38 second mark, where it looks like one of the Google employees that is watching the show has a Nexus 5 in his hands.
The device has the Nexus branding in the landscape orientation, which we thought was a bit odd on the Nexus 7, but now it looks like that will be something to tie together the Nexus 5, 7, and 10. The device that the guy is holding does have an LG logo at the bottom which seems to confirm that LG will be making the new Nexus (assuming there is only one). The other interesting note is that the camera lens looks absolutely massive, which reminds us that we have been promised that the Nexus camera would be "insanely great".
*Update* Looks like Google has already pulled the video, and the assumption is because this LG Nexus was not supposed to be in there. Of course, this is the Internet, and nothing disappears forever. We've already swapped the link with a mirror of the video.

Yup... Either a genius product placement or incredibly lousy job by Google. There is no existing Nexus phone that looks like that. So it can only be the Nexus 5.

I'm pretty sure that the shot has been staged. You have a Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 almost side by side and you can clearly see the details. Too much to be a mistake.

Definitely staged. Not only do you have a nexus 4 and possible nexus 5 on the front you get the galaxy nexus on the back (at least it definitely looks like one). It's typical of google to do this suggestive advertising to get us going without showing too much

Slimmer physique/frame of the woman make the Nexus 4 look larger whereas the larger frame of the guy make the supposed image of the Nexus 5 look smaller. Picture them both swapping devices (especially the woman) and you can see the difference in size.
