    Not with Google nor LG so definitely don't know for sure. Neither do you.

    But we don't definitely know it is the next Nexus, right? So until we know that the documentation goes with the next Nexus, it's hinted at. No need to be condescending as someone suggested you were in another thread.

    I'm really looking forward to it. I'm also having a great time with my moto X.

    Honestly, if you are really antsy, get a cheap Nexus 4 somewhere and switch, bring your own phone to t-mobile and then wait out the moto x or nexus 5 and use that as an upgrade if you really want to, or buy it straight up.

    I found a nexus 4 with a broken back (camera, screen and speaker are flawless) on craigslist for $95 dollars. I put on a case on no one would ever know it was broken. Just my 2 cents.

    I would look at the HTC One. I get great battery life, and the boot loader is easily unlocked. Many custom ROMs to chose from, including the "pure Google" experience. If you're into that type of thing. Besides, the screen is absolutely gorgeous. Of course if I was in the market for a new phone today, I would wait for the new LG phone. Anatech did a nice review on it, it gets great battery life.

    Waiting to see next Nexus, but wary of the battery hinted at. Handling a 5-inch screen and with 800 chipset may be too demanding for 2300 mAh battery that has been talked about in discussions. Battery life is a premium and if I could be assured Moto X will get rapid, timely updates, I would land there. We will see.

    The 800 chipset is supposed to get better battery life than it's predecessors. The above review discusses it.

    Having a Snapdragon 800 would actually provide for better battery life than with the 600 or S4 Pro. People have the misconception that more power = more battery drain, but the S800 is also newer and thus has better battery efficiency technology.

    The pictures in the FCC filing perfectly match the N5 that Google intentionally leaked. Unless Google is a massive troll and manufactured a fake phone just to troll us, it's most definitely an N5.

    And then what if all of this is true but it isn't named the Nexus 5? I am looking forward to its appearance. :-)

    Just using it as a placeholder name for whatever it will be called, whether it be Nexus 5 or something else.

    What makes you think the X will get rapid, timely updates? Why does everyone think this is comparable to a Nexus?

    The X is a carrier phone = updates whenever the manufacturer AND carrier decide to update it. Certainly, you'll only get one, or if you're lucky two of the next versions of Android before your phone is OLD. Fact of life on the Android side of things.

    Lot of tough decisions on some nice phones right now, almost too tough so maybe I should go back to just letting apple give me whatever they happen to come out with each year.

    I'm torn myself between this phone and the htc one...although I might be leaning more towards the one because this phone only comes in 16gb on Verizon

    Nice find. You can also put on one of those dbrand skins http://dbrand.com/submodels/nexus-4
