Just a few days before Google was preparing to unveil the Nexus 4, the flagship smartphone launched in October 2012 showed up in Carphone Warehouse’s inventory, confirming that the handset’s release date nears. Fast forward a year and we hear that the Carphone Warehous inventory contains 1,500 white Nexus 5 units.
The guys at Android Police received the screenshot above from an anonymous tipster who also claims that there are 1,500 black Nexus 5 units, as well.
The leaked screenshot does look like Carphone Warehouse inventory system, but you shouldn’t rule out the possibility of a forgery, so we are advising you to take the information with a pinch of salt.
If the leaked screenshot and the tipster’s claims are both true, it means that Carphone Warehouse “is sitting on” 3,000 Nexus 5 units. With all these leaks showing warehouses full of Nexus 5 terminals we hope that history won’t repeat itself and the retailers won’t have stock issues like it happened last year with the Nexus 4.
There’s no extra information about the Nexus 5 to extract from the leaked Carphone Warehouse inventory, not that we need to know anything more about the smartphone co-developed by LG and Google. Well, maybe except for the actual release date. As it was mentioned in previous reports the handset will come with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB storage, 8 MP camera with OIS, a price of $349 for the 16 GB variant, and, of course Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
Since Google failed to introduce Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5 at yesterday’s “Morning with Google+” event, we are eager to hear when the Mountain View-based giant will actually unveil the highly-anticipated smartphone.
