A few days ago Google pressed the wrong buttons and Nexus was made available for a short while in Google Play, listed for $349, and now some other pictures were leaked pointing to a white Nexus 5 smartphone. The leaked pictures come from the retail box in which it will be available at the shelf, which is basically the final step which confirmed the name, color scheme and price. We are looking at the long waited LG device made for Google and the original release date plan was kind of full of mistakes, if we take a look back at all the leaks which were made available since the first rumor regarding the next Nexus smartphone.
The leaked pictures come from our source, which shortly after publishing them on their website and on their Facebook page they were taken down, leaving no explication for the action. Maybe LG requested that the pictures should be removed from both sources, but they weren’t quick enough as many fans were already downloading the pictures and made them available world-wide.
Looking at the package, we can clearly see the similarities between Nexus 5 box and Nexus 7, having the same minimalist design with front and side pictures of the device, all on a light blue background. The white version of Nexus 5 was only at a rumor stage until these pictures appeared, but now it is clear that Nexus 5 will be made available in White version once it will be released.
Beside the release date, we managed to gather all information about the latest Google Nexus 5 smartphone from LG and you can take a look at what we know for sure until this day, from the specs sheet below. As for the release date, rumors are pointing to October 31st, but until another official “leak” will surface the web, we can only assume that Nexus 5 will be ready for sale at the end of October.
