Nexus 4 sells out on Google Play, then the Nexus 5 conveniently gets leaked in photos and video

Today, the Nexus 4 sold out on the Google Play Store. And according to The Verge, “Google has no plans to bring it back in stock in any storage size.” This means that the device’s rain as the flagship Nexus phone is effectively over and the only thing left is for Google to announce its successor.

Coincidentally, photos and videos of a phone that looks just like the Nexus 5 that Google first leaked themselves have shown up online. It’s definitely the same device, with the horizontal Nexus text along with the larger camera:

The tipster that sent the photos was also kind enough to send in some videos. The software running on the device, however, curiously looks almost identical to Android Jellybean. Whether that means Android KitKat won’t feature a radically different look or that this is a prototype device running older or unfinished software, we don’t know. But at the rate we’re going, it looks like Google might be readying to give the official word any day now.

Also, it’s really amazing that if a leaked picture isn’t blurry or obscured, then it’s ridiculously dark. One day we’ll get a nice photo of a leaked device. One day.

    [@Enrique Manalang] Meh. I’ve been dragging my feet in upgrading my Nexus S. Nexus 4 at $199 was too low to resist… I may get Nexus 5 depending on price.

    [@Ashraf] Ashraf, it’s a sign. It’s time for you to get the Nexus 5. I’m pretty sure you said a few months ago you’d get the next Nexus phone anyway! :p

    [@Enrique Manalang] Meh. Not only will they charge more than what Google sold it for, I’m not a fan of buying electronic devices from third-party sources. Too paranoid, if you know what I mean.

    I blame you for this Enrique. Why did you have to post this today, should of let my hopes and dreams flourish for a few more days.

    [@Ashraf] It’s sold out on Google Play, but if you’re lucky enough you can find it in other places :)

    WTF? I was planning on grabbing two Nexus 4s soon as I get back to the States. At $199 a pop, they are a steal. Now I will literally have to steal one to get it.
