Google is expected to officially unveil the Nexus 5 any day now. (Technically it already has.) But one Canadian carrier has apparently grown tired of waiting. Wind Mobile today launched a pre-registration page for the upcoming Android flagship, describing it as "the smart, new phone made to capture the moments that matter." The page also reveals some key specifications for the latest Nexus handset. The internals listed here largely match up with what we've seen from previous leaks and FCC filings, so there's not much in the way of surprises. According to Wind, the Nexus 5 will feature a 4.95-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and will be available in both 16GB and 32GB configurations.


Bluetooth 4.0 is on board, and the spec sheet also confirms the device will support 802.11ac Wi-Fi – though it's erroneously listed as "nc." In truth there's little here that we weren't already expecting, but if you were looking for the Nexus 5's precise dimensions or weight (0.29 pounds), it's all included here. There is one curious design choice: according to Wind Mobile, LG has built the phone's power and volume buttons out of ceramic. We've seen the hardware plenty, but thankfully it shouldn't be long until Google gives everyone a firsthand look at what the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat can do.
