Oops. Since there apparently aren’t already enough leaks in the smartphone industry, Google decided to take matters into its own hands on Tuesday and leak its upcoming next-generation pure Google phone, the Nexus 5. In a promotional video released following the announcement of its next major Android build, 9to5Google reports that Google inadvertently slipped in a few frames of the new Nexus 5. The video was pulled once the snafu was discovered, but not before the world caught its first glimpse of the monstrous new Google phone.

Built by LG, the Nexus 5 is expected to launch next month featuring a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, a 2,700 mAh battery and Android 4.4 Kit Kat, which Google announced on Tuesday will be the next major version of its mobile operating system.
