The first Nexus 5 cases have already popped up

The evidence continues to pile up that we could see the next Nexus as soon as next week. South Korean case maker Spigen says the "revolution" is upon us.

The latest hubbub is that our first official glimpse of Android KitKat and a Google Nexus 5 smartphone could be just days away now . This gossip is further bolstered by the fact that the first third-party cases for the Nexus 5 have been spotted on Google+.

South Korea's Spigen, which makes a variety of mobile accessories including a pretty spiffy case for the iPhone 5S designed to complement the new gold model, started sharing images of its "neo hybrid" case for the Nexus 5.

There's no release date or any other real details on the case or phone, just a shot of the back of a case on what pretty clearly seems to be the Nexus 5 that we've been seeing in leaks recently.

Those leaks have painted a pretty clear picture of what to expect from the Nexus 5 -- basically a spiffy take on the LG G2 with near top-flight specs, pure Android 4.4 KitKat, and an unlocked price tag that could be as low as $299 . We should know more next week. Stay tuned, and please, wipe that drool off your chin.
