Over the last month, we have seen several leaks turn up showing the alleged Nexus 4 successor's design and specifications.
Earlier, Nestle revealed the first news about the launch of Android 4.4 KitKat on Facebook, claiming an October release date. While this was not an official confirmation from Google about Android 4.4 KitKat's release, as a partner, Nestle's German Facebook handle was kind enough to confirm that it is coming next month.
Prior to this, the alleged Nexus 4 successor was spotted in live images and a video. The leaked images showed a pre-production unit of the next Nexus smartphone that revealed the front and rear panel.
It is rumoured that the next Nexus smartphone would run Android 4.4 KitKat, and that the smartphone would be the platform lead device for the new platform, due to be launched at the same event.
