Nexus 5 shows up in a 3D render for a virtual hands-on

Nexus 5 shows up in a 3D render for a virtual hands-on
To be clear, this is not an official 3D render, but there have been enough leaks of the device that those putting together the build are confident in what the new LG Nexus will look like. We've seen renders put together before, but this time around it is a full 3D render that can be viewed from any angle you like. So, you can get your own virtual hands-on, and all you need is the Unity plugin.

There have been FCC filings, the original sighting in the Android KitKat statue video, and today (after this 3D render was put together) we even saw a real world leak of the device after it was left in a bar. So, there's plenty of evidence as to what the new LG Nexus (presumed to be called the Nexus 5) will be called. Of course, we still don't know if there will be changes to the UI of Android 4.4 KitKat. 

Likelihood is that there won't be any major UI changes, because those are usually reserved for the full point-oh releases of Android, and this is an incremental update. There is a rumor that the accent colors may change, like Google did between Android 2.2 and 2.3 though. As a placeholder, the Android 4.3 wallpaper has been put in the new render.
