The supposed Nexus 5 FCC filing may just be another LG G2
posted by Michael H. / Sep 09, 2013, 7:33 PM
The evidence comes by proxy. It seems that @evleaks found a database that shows the GSM LG G2, which is model D802, alongside the a CDMA variant of the G2, which is labeled as model D821. The database doesn't directly mention the D820, but given the listing for the D821, the idea is that what we saw go through the FCC is actually another CDMA variant of the G2 and not the fabled Nexus 5.
The trouble with this theory is that it doesn't account for the fact that the backplate design doesn't show the camera and rear control buttons in the center as you would expect with the G2, and instead show the camera off to the corner, and no controls, as you might expect with the Nexus. So, we'll just have to hold on for some official word, or more full-fledged leaks.

I don't think there will be back buttons or hyperglaze back judging from the leak picture below.http://cdn.androidcommunity.co

Post the full story PA. Evleaks said its a Verizon variant of the G2. Yet he can\'t explain why it doesn\'t support Verizons LTE banding. The person who runs Evleaks is a jackoff who doesn\'t know what\'s going on half the time someone leaks info

A G2 variant that didn't have Verizon's bands in it? That didn't have the buttons on the back? That had that massive opening for the camera like in the video? That has a different battery in it? And that is just under 5", unlike the G2 which is 5.2". Right, I'm sure it is a G2 variant.

@Michael Only that neither the dimensions of the phone, the size of the screen or the version of the OS of the D821 matches the documents of the FCC for the D820:https://twitter.com/evleaks/st
In the FCC the phone has: 5" screen, 68.2mm wide, 131.9 mm tall and Key Lemo Pie.
While in evleaks the D821 has 5.2" screen, 70.9x138.5 mm and Jelly Bean 4.2.
So I think this time eveleaks is wrong and that there is still hope. 1

im too bothered about the back plate being glass on the nexus 5, just along as the back glass has the same strength as the front glass. This is what was wrong with the nexus 4. The back glass was different (and not as strong) from the front glass.
