Developer Jack Underwood took the dimensions from the recent FCC approval of the LG D820 that has been pretty much confirmed as the Nexus 5 and compared them to the Nexus 4. The result? Despite a larger screen size with higher resolution, the Nexus 5 is actually smaller in every dimension.

If there were any lingering doubt about the match between the casings shown and the device slipped into the KitKat video, the animated GIF below seems to provide conclusive proof … 

Gus Janssen turned the case image to match the orientation of a frame-grab from the video to produce this:

The Nexus 5 is expected to be launched in the next month or so, Google having recently slashed the price of the existing handset, with the 8GB model going out of stock, apparently for good.

  1. The statement “I hope this one isn’t as bad as the nexus 4. You cant use the nexus 4 in the summer time it over heats!” sure does not apply to my phone. I live in the tropics where daily temps are in the 38C/100F range and my phone has never overheated in the last year, even under extreme usage on the dash as a gps while in direct sunlight in my non-airconditioned Jeep.
