Android KitKat video unveils Nexus 5 by LG?

With the new Android 4.4 KitKat Google also published the usual unveiling video of the new Droid sculpture. It would be nothing new if it weren't for a few frames of video that showed us a curious scente. At the 0:38 mark, we see a man and a woman both recording the event with their Nexus smartphones. The thing is... while the woman was holding a regular Nexus 4, the man was holding a never before seen larger Nexus!

Can this be upcoming Nexus 5? Also noticeable is the LG logo near the bottom, which may serve as a confirmation that the partnership that brought us the Nexus 4 is to continue for at least another year. One can hope that the new Nexus 5 will be based on the LG G2 - a Full HD Snapdragon 800 beast with a 13MP camera. But, there might be some changes, like there were in the Nexus 4 in regards to its LG base model, the "G".

For starters, the camera isn't in a center position like on the G2, nor do we have the uncommon volume buttons on the back. That means that either Google has opted for a complete "touch-sense" back... or risk having a larger bezel around the screen to accommodate the button on the side.

What do you think... is this the new Nexus 5?

You can see it for yourself at 0:38 in the following video.
Update: Google has already pulled the video, giving even more credibility that indeed it was something not meant to be seen, at least for now.
