Nexus 5 spotted in bar

The Google Nexus 5 is closer than ever after being spotted in a bar and the Nexus 4 selling out.

A hefty price cut was the first big sign from Google that a replacement was on the way - the rumoured Nexus 5. The phone has sold out in one model on the Play Store and the Nexus 5 has been spotted in a bar. See alsoNexus 5 release date, price and specs rumours.

In the UK, the Nexus 4 is now sold out of the 8 GB model and Google has no plans to restock the device in the US, according to The Verge. Google says "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon." And the 16 GB model is still on sale at £199 – get it while you can is our advice.

On top of the Play Store selling out of Nexus 4 units, the Nexus 5 has been captured on camera in a bar. It seems the owner of the device happily left the device unattended to charge up, but a keen eyed employee was more than happy to get some snaps and videos and send them to 9to5google.

There's a Nexus logo mostly hidden under a sticker, an LG logo suggesting it will be making the Nexus 5 after producing the Nexus 4. There's also a big 'not for sale' printed on the phone suggesting it is indeed a prototype/sample of the upcoming Nexus 5.

Unfortunately the device had a lock pattern so the bar employee could only get a small glimpse of Android 4.4 KitKat running on the Nexus 5.

We're expecting Google to announce the Nexus 5 in the coming weeks. The device is rumoured to feature a 5 in Full HD screen and a 16 Mp camera made by Nikon.
