One has to wonder why companies even bother trying to keep their devices under wraps any more. Google's Nexus 5 has been spotted a few times now — first in a promotional video (spotted at 0:38) released by Google itself when it announced Android KitKat, then in a US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing submitted by LG (revealing that the new phone is not, in fact, being developed by Google Motorola).

An inattentive Google employee is the catalyst for the most recent link. According to 9to5Mac, he left the phone unattended and charging at a bar. While his attention was elsewhere, a bar employee managed to film two short videos of the device on his own phone.

There's not a lot to them, since the phone is locked, but FCC documents reveal that the phone will operate on the GSM, CDMA, WCDMA and long-term evolution (LTE) bands and is fitted with a 5-inch display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Google has yet to make any announcements about the Nexus 5. CNET Australia has contacted the company for comment and will update this story when we have more information.
