Did the FCC just give thumbs up to the LG Nexus 5, spotted on the KitKat unveiling video?

Based on pictures from the FCC documentation, the device submitted to the Feds has a curved back and a large camera opening just like the mystery phone seen in the video. What we know about the device is that it goes by the model number D820, is made by LG and is equipped with a 4.96 inch screen. The phone supports 7 LTE bands (bands 2/4/5/17/25/26/41) which are compatible with carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. There is also coverage for CDMA / EVDO rev A, pentaband DC-HSPA+ and quadband GSM / EDGE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac. Whew!
Some other documents have revealed more information such as the news that the phone is running firmware M8974A, and the software version listed is "aosp_hammerhead-userdebug KyeLimePieFACTORY eng.sangjoon84.lee.20130618.015154." The former suggests that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is under the hood while the latter, with the Key Lime Pie typo, tells us that KitKat is installed. The handset measures 131.9mm by 68.2mm.
If the speed with which a video is pulled corresponds to how secret the information on the video is, there is no doubt that this analysis is on the right track. All those who had LG as the manufacturer of the Nexus 5 in the office pool appear to be victorious.

Good job on the find S4GRU! Woo, this is exciting that a Nexus might be coming to Sprint again, looks like Verizon will be left out this time...understandable considering their history with releasing updates.

Nexus would never be printed in landscape. On Nexus 4, it was in portrait. So yeah, this is fake.

I personally would never buy a Nexus phone on any carrier because the carriers then get to control when you get your updates. Hopefully, this new iteration of the Nexus will keep the low-cost unlocked price set by it's predecessor.

I wonder if they will put 1080p in this device. Considering the document shows a 2300mAh battery. 1600x900 at 4.96 is still 370 ppi. Just sayin.

.....everyone asking for 1080p screens.....WHY? i've used both 720 and 1080 side by side and could barely note the difference ...otherwise u wouldn't even know...key is colour - reproduction and Nits aka sun visibility...720p over 1080 since batterys bettery too and cheap to make too

I would say its going to be 720p resolution because judging from the back plate it looks to be based on the lg g2 with a slightly smaller screen. The g2 has a 3000 mAh battery and this has just a 2300 mAh. Seems like 1080p would result in crappy battery life given the battery size. Plus if the new droids are any indication we can tell google is ok with going 5.0in in screen size with 720p. I'd say we're looking at 720p. Not to mention a 720p panel would keep cost down as well.

Google had little influence on the Droids. The only place where they had influence in Motorola products are the software (close to stock) and the Moto X. It was Motorola's independent choice to put a 5" 720p panel on the Ultra and Maxx, I'm sure Google had nothing to do with it.

1080p LCD-IPS, 3 GB of RAM(?), and a Snapdragon 800 are probably going to be the Nexus 5's specs. Hopefully it will have an awesome camera too, it better be amazing if the opening for it is that big. Really, that thing is just gaping, almost as bad as (formerly) Nokia's devices.
