Nexus 5 Release Date Rumored for Nov. 1, White Model Leaks Online


We’ve seen numerous Nexus 5 renders and leaks, but the latest potential image suggests that the Nexus 5 will come in white, just like its predecessor. Twitter leakster @evleaks posted an image of a white Nexus 5 slated for a Nov. 1 release date, contradicting rumors that the phone would debut this month.

Other than its new color, the purported Nexus 5 looks identical to the previously leaked images we’ve seen. Borrowing design cues from the Nexus 7, the Nexus 5 swaps out its predecessor’s sparkly rear plate for a sleeker, plain back. Consistent with preceding leaks, the new Nexus 5 image appears to have a larger screen and a thinner body. The image shows a Nexus 5 with a white back and a black front, just like the white version of the Nexus 4.

The Nexus 5 is expected to roll out alongside the next version of Android dubbed 4.4 KitKat. Other than a larger 5.2-inch display and thinner design, the Nexus 4 successor is rumored to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip on the inside and support for LTE. Earlier this month, the Google Play store briefly posted a product page for the Nexus 5 with it priced at $349 for 16GB.  

There’s no telling exactly what we can expect from the Nexus 5 until Google makes it official, but the Nov. 1 release date would line up with the company’s launch pattern. The Nexus 4 was announced almost exactly one year ago, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the next-gen handset debut soon.
