    Default Notification LED?

    Some of the pre-release rumors stated it would have a notification LED, but the official specs don't reference it, and I haven't seen it on any photos or videos. Anyone in the know have some insight on this?

    That's a good question. I'm thinking it will but who knows. Every Nexus phone has had a notification light that I remember.

    I have the same question. I am thinking they will. It isn't necessary, but I LOVE having one....

    I'm beginning to think that they left it out of this model...been going through all the reviews on the tech blogs that have had a hands-on and there's not a single mention or evidence of an LED...

    The service manual leaked early on indicated there would be one. But you're definitely right, there hasn't been much mention of it.

    Pay attention to the very last scene in this video where the guy is taking a night pick, in the corn field. It's there...No?

    I can't find any evidence of a notification LED. It's going to suck if they left this out!!

    There was a leaked video a couple weeks ago on YouTube. In the beginning of the video as the Nexus 5 is being turned around you see the front bottom left and you can see like 6 circles beneath the glass. I think it has multiple simultaneous lights. That is my theory. I'll look for the video and update this post.

    Update...
    Found it. It is actually more like 8 circles.
    See at 00:28


    Another possibility is that those circles are not just for notifications but for light sensor to change screen brightness automatically. So who knows.

    Seems like a lot of people are asking the same question all around the internet, and nobody is getting an answer...I've seen some really high-res photos at some blogs where they have one in-hand, and there is just no sign or mention of it. You'd think it would be news if it was left out, considering all previous models had it...

    Someone over on XDA contacted Google support today and explicitly asked if the Nexus 5 had an LED notification light and she was told yes it did...she asked follow-up questions to clarify and was assured again that yes, it has a notification light. So until someone else with first hand knowledge can verify, I will remain optimistic.

    +1 for optimism.

    The Nexus 5 is based on the LG2, and the LG2 has a front LED notification.

    Does that means buttons on the back?

    No, it does not have buttons on the back. Did you see buttons on the back?

    Just talked to the Nexus support team and the guy didn't know, but got back to me with an email that specifically says "the Nexus 5 doesn't have LED notification Sensors". Now an LED light isn't a sensor, I don't think, but that is unfortunate if this in fact does not have a notification light.

    That would certainly blow...

    I really do find it very interesting that although the phone is out there in some peoples' hands already, that nothing definitive is being revealed about this despite the growing interest...
