Nexus 5 Appears on Google Play! Starting Price of $349 (Updated)

nexus 5

Sooooo, the Nexus 5 is now showing up on Google Play (name now confirmed). Tough to tell if this is an early mistake or something is about to go down officially. The price shows that it starts at $349 and there is a direct link to the phone (which is not live yet) that shows it will be a 16GB model. There could be a 32GB model as well, but that info isn’t available.

Update 3: We should point out that the quote under the listing says “Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways.”

Update 4: And the Nexus 4 has returned.

Update 5:  Google appears to have closed up shop now. There are now no real remaining traces of the phone. Did they mean to do that? Probably not. The question now is, are we going to see an announcement tomorrow without any sort of event? If not, how big of a screw-up was that?

    News flash!!! Android lovers…Nexus 5 confirmed release date Oct. 30th & Nov. 5th at Google play store. Acknowledgement from reliable source only = LG

    That picture looks doctored… when you go to the site there’s a different graphic behind the phones..

    So little is unknown at this point, I would be surprised if there was an event. Probably will be a press release with links to all the relevant information, like last years forced cancelation.

    will this work on verizon?

      There has been not one LG device to visit the FCC this year submitted for use on Verizon. Sprint gets the LG-D820 along with ATT, and tmo. International markets get the LG-D821.

      It is NOT coming to Verizon, as they do not not want it in their network.

        why dont they want it on their network ? It seems to me the problem is verizon and not Google

        • aDROIDfreeworld

          Because it’s unlocked, affordable, and directly challenges Verizon’s Fascist way of dominating it’s customer base via bloatware, intentionally delayed updates(to increase Android sales), and willfully delaying new devices on its network (like the moto x) in order to down play their significance, so they can sell more of their DROID devices, Scamsung phones, bloatdroids, etc,.

      • It’s not just Verizon, Google/LG didn’t include the right bands, & remember bands a make her dance.

        • aDROIDfreeworld

          Yes. This is what I was saying by referencing the model numbers – none of them have proper set of bands to operate on big red… Unless LG makes a last minute Class II permissive change and adds LTE Band 13 to the D820 – a software alteration could easily include support for it . But that would be too good to be true 🙁
