Nexus 5 gets torn apart in high-quality photo gallery ahead of launch

Google hasn’t even launched its new Nexus 5 yet but the highly-anticipated handset has already been torn apart. Smartphone parts leaker Fanatic Fone awoke from its slumber on Thursday with a photo gallery showing Google’s upcoming hero phone broken down and baring all. Since we already know just about everything there is to know about the Nexus 5, there’s not much to be gleaned from these pictures unless you’re interested in the device’s inner workings. They’re still yet another sign that we’re finally approaching the device’s launch, however, which is expected to take place sometime on Friday.

Earlier leaks suggest that Nexus 5 specs include a 4.95-inch full HD display, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, an 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 16GB or 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Google’s new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

Several photos from the Nexus 5 teardown follow below and the rest can be found on the Fanatic Fone website, which is linked in our source section.
