The LG Nexus 5 had made yet another appearance on camera, just days after it was spotted in a video promotion for Android KitKat, this time however it’s in a more official capacity during a visit to the FCC.

Whilst the FCC filing never specifically says “Nexus 5”, since that would just be insane — a smartphone dubbed D820 did show up, and it came from LG.

Adding plausibility that this is indeed the Nexus 5, and not another LG phone, is the fact that the images shown in the filing match up pretty well with the device we saw at Google’s Mountain View HQ.

According to the report, the Nexus 5 we will all be seeing hit the shelves will include a 4.96-inch display and feature a Snapdragon 800 processor.

The software is listed as “aosp_hammerhead-userdebugKyeLimePieFACTORYeng.sangjoon84.lee.20130618.015154,” and we know that Key Lime Pie was the codename for Android 4.4, until it was recently renamed KitKat.

Qi wireless charging will be included with the device, as well as 7-band LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac wireless capabilities.

With the recent revealing in a Google video and now this FCC filing, we’re pretty confident that the Nexus 5 is just around the corner.
