Even though Google failed to announce the Nexus 5 during the “Morning with Google+” event, new details about the highly-anticipated smartphone continue to make the headlines. This time we get to look at a bunch of Nexus 5 boxes that were caught on camera in an LG Canada warehouse.
The photos of the alleged Nexus 5 retail boxes were first posted on Neogaf forums then reposted on Reddit. It seems that an LG Canada employee was the one who took the photos, also claiming that there are about 30,000 Nexus 5 units resting in the warehouse. According to him, 4,000 of the total of 30,000 units are allocated to the western Canada region, while the rest of 26,000 are for the eastern region. While Bell and Telus will have to split the 4,000 units between them, the other 26,000 units will mostly make it to Rorger’s shops.
We don’t know yet whether the 30,000 units in LG Canada’s warehouse account the Google Play Store Nexus 5 terminals too, but it’s very unlikely.
Previous reports have indicated that the Nexus 5 will be launched at the Canadian retailers as of November 7/8, a week after the Google Play Store debut of the highly-anticipated smartphone.
As a reminder, the Nexus 5 is expected to pack a 5-inch full HD LCD display, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage, and an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization. As you probably remember, the Nexus 5 made a brief appearance in Google Play Store a few days ago which revealed that the price for the 16 GB model will be $349.
For the time being there is no official information regarding the Nexus 5 release date, but it will most likely debut synchronized with Android 4.4 KitKat.
