Wind Mobile posts, then deletes Nexus 5 details on Facebook

The company showed a preregistration page, as well as specs for the long-rumored device.


Just about everyone has leaked details on the Nexus 5 .

Canada-based carrier Wind Mobile on Monday temporarily posted a Nexus 5 preregistration page to its Facebook profile. The page, which since has been taken down but was snapped by Mobile Syrup before it was removed, allowed users to sign up for information on the device. It also included the tagline, "Google Nexus 5. The smart, new phone made to capture the moments that matter."

In addition to a preregistration page, Wind published specs for the Nexus 5. According to that page, the smartphone will offer a 4.95-inch, 1080P display and an 8MP rear-facing camera and will run Android 4.4 (KitKat). The 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 will be bundled into the device.

Assuming the information in the fleeting post was accurate, the specs listed match the multitude of rumors surrounding the Nexus 5. Reports had suggested that the handset would be available by now, but neither Google nor LG has given any indication when it might be announced. Given this latest leak, however, it seems the device will arrive soon.
