Nexus 5 leaks in a big way with photos, Kitkat details and more

The Google Nexus 5 is on its way - possibly today - and we've been treated to a host of leaked images and Android 4.4 details to whet our appetites.

It looks as though several people around the world have got their hands on pre-release Nexus 5 handsets, with one enterprising self-starter taking to Reddit to do an AMA about it.

He described the handset for his eager audience: "[The handset] doesn't feel cheap like a Samsung device, feels great in the hand, it's similar to holding a G2 but no volume controls [on the back]."

The price is right

He also claimed to be "99% certain" that the pricing would start at $349. That's about £220 or AU$370.
And the question on everybody's lips: what does the Nexus 5 taste like? "Fresh plastic mixed with finger sweat."

As for KitKat, it sounds as though there'll be some kind of cloud-based backup option and voice control.
Not long to wait until we find out we've been had: we're expecting the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 to launch later on today.
