Priced at $349, was immediately taken down.
Google's next smartphone has already been leaked a fair bit, but not by Google themselves, until last night.
The Nexus 5 went up for sale last night on Google's Play Store, with the listing showing a full-sized picture as well as a price for the handset - starting at $349 in the US which is around £215 in the UK.
The smartphone couldn't be selected and was quickly removed, but one user managed to get a screenshot.
Thanks to the leaked manual, we know that the Nexus 5 comes with a 1080p, 4.95-inch screen, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor, 16GB or 32GB storage and will run the latest version of Android - 4.4 KitKat. There's also 4G connectivity.
The only really interesting revelation from the leak is the home screen, showing that texting has now been replaced by Google+ Hangouts. It's clearer now than ever that Google is serious about muscling in on the OTT messaging space currently occupied by the likes of WhatsApp and WeChat.
