It's most probably a fake Google puts out the factory image at the same time as the ota. No factory image is out.

They obviously didn't think the build date of the kernel was important either...

Nobody said it was OTA and like how the US reviewers received a build of 4.2 before it was released (beta in that sense) this could be beta as well. The USA reviewers reecived an OTA update the Sunday before it launched to the full final 4.2.

The phone just came out in Brazil and Malaysia so they could be getting the most up to date build to review just like Google/LG did in the USA.

Not that I am disagreeing with this possibly being a fake, but the 2 is inline perfectly. I just check with Photoshop. (Though, it isn't hard to fake these things.)

My first thought to that is why bother fake it in photoshop when you can just simply edit a text file (build.prop) and change it to 4.2.7 if you wanna? That way you can make android 5.0 and it would look perfectly aligned and you cuold even make a video of it since it's pulling that information from the text file.

Once in build.prop you can edit the following things:

-edit Android Version by locating ro.build.version.release= and changing the current Build Version.
- Edit your Model # by locating ro.product.model= and changing your model #
- change your product brand by locating ro.product.brand=
It's not that hard to do.

I completely agree. I just opened Photoshop to zoom in and check the lineage of the numbers. Photoshop wouldn't be my method of trying to fake something like this, I was just testing what the user above had said about the numbers being out of line, etc.
