The details of Google's new Nexus 5 smartphone have been revealed on the web by mistake.

The handset, which has not yet been released, was seen on the play store by the eagle-eyed Android police.

According to the Daily Star, the picture, which was taken off the store shortly after the image was snapped, shows how the new handset will look and it's also the first time Android 4.4 Kit Kat has been seen.

The phone looks similar to the Nexus 7 tablet with a rubberised back and embossed Google logo.

Android Kit Kat gives the icons a make over and you'll notice the SMS app has been replaced by Google Hangouts, the report said.

The price was also displayed at 349 dollars, which makes it a very affordable smartphone.

The Nexus 5 is likely to be on sale before the end of the year, although Google are staying tight-lipped.
