Talking tech since 2003

A new leak released by @evleaks on Twitter indicates that the Nexus 5 will be released on November 1. In a tweet which read: “In white. 11/1.” evleaks included a photo of what appears to be the white version of the Nexus 5. Last night, evleaks tweeted a photo of the Nexus 5 in black, but simply stated, “Nexus 5 by LG, 2013.” To date, we have had a fair bit of information come out relating to the Nexus 5, including actual photos, service manuals, and specs (included below), but we didn’t have a rumored release date — until now.

The Nexus 5’s predecessor has been out of stock on the Google Play store for weeks now, so it seems entirely possible the new Nexus 5 will be released on Friday (November 1). If in fact that is the release date it also coincides with the release of the iPad Air. How’s that for timing?

Here are the current rumored specs of the Nexus 5 which will sport the latest and greatest version of Android — Android KitKat.  What do you think? Drop us a line below.
