Search engine giant Google on Tuesday, while announcing the new Android OS version, accidentally revealed the upcoming new Nexus phone.

During the customary unveiling of the chocolate-flavoured Kit Kat statue in front of the office building, some Google employees were seen taking photos of it with Nexus phones. A woman was holding a Nexus 4 and another person had a bigger phone with the word Nexus imprinted vertically on its back panel, leading many to believe it to be the next-generation Nexus 5 smartphone.

Soon after word got out into the online media, Google pulled the video off the web further fueling debate on the existence of the new Nexus phone. The smartphone seen in the video resembled a common 5.0-inch device which seems to be apt for the rumoured moniker Nexus 5.

The current incident bring backs the memory of Google co-founder Eric Schmidt who was spotted using the Moto X at the annual Allen and Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho Resort, few weeks before the new Motorola smartphone went official in August this year. Taking this into account, we can expect that the Nexus 5 launch is just around the corner.  

According to reports, LG is said to once again join hands with Google to produce the Nexus 4 successor. Nexus 5 will reportedly sport a 5.2-inch display with full HD 1080p resolution and run on 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor with either 2GB (or 3GB) RAM may also feature a 2,700 mAh battery. The device is expected to make its debut next month along with the new Android v4.4 Kit Kat OS.
