Nexus 5 Press Renders Show Both Black and White Versions, Could Arrive November 1

Thanks to famed tech leaker @evleaks, we now have two new press renders for the upcoming Nexus 5 in both white and black along with a potential release date. As you can see from each included picture, it does appear as if we’ll see two variants, which we sort of figured after a couple of previous leaks. Nothing is necessarily new in either of the renders, but this is the clearest picture yet of the white model. We had only seen the white Nexus 5 on a retail box and in a spycam shot a few weeks back.

So when will we finally be able to buy the new Nexus 5? 

According to @evleaks, it could arrive as early as November 1. His Tweet with the white render only said “In white. 11/1.” While nothing is confirmed or official at this time, we tend to listen when Evan speaks or provides information about upcoming devices. The man has a great track record.

We’re still a little confused at why there has been no indication of a press event for Google to unveil this phone and show off Android 4.4. Both products seem worthy of some extra attention, though Google still remains less typical as a tech giant than most. Or maybe the event will happen mid-week as a last minute gathering? Either way, temporarily pencil in this Friday as a potential day for you to spend $349.

    Does anyone know if this can be used on these non-contract company lines? Like track phone or whatever?

    Damn, right on my Birthday?! One can only Hope! 😀

    “In white. ’11/1′.” 1+1+1=3. Half-Life 3 confirmed

    This might be the only phone where I’d ever consider the white version. It looks pretty decent and it’ll prevent fingerprints which we’ve seen in pretty much all the leaked pictures of the back of the black one. Such a shame that Verizon won’t get this phone, it’s beautiful and the perfect upgrade for Galaxy Nexus owners. If the camera is good, it will be such a shame that Verizon has caused us to not be able to pick up this device.

    I won’t be leaving Verizon for this phone, I’d like to, but the other wireless companies just aren’t even comparable in my area. As dumb as it sounds, I think Google should have just done whatever Verizon asked so their fans could have gotten this phone, knowing loads of us are stuck on Verizon due to their superior LTE coverage.

    As slow as the updates came, they did end up coming, and most people who buy Google’s Verizon Galaxy Nexus rooted anyways, so why worry about Verizon causing delays in updates when their user base would just update directly anyways.

    Will it run on Verizon ?

    Google, can you please just launch the phone already. I cannot wait any longer for you to verify that I cannot possibly purchase this phone (Verizon customer, no I cannot switch carriers)

    Right now I just want to know if the camera is going to be decent or what? I don’t think I can use the N4 for any longer due to the camera needing perfect conditions to take decent photos. Comparing it to my wife’s GS3 is a joke. Both running CM10.1 and the GS3 just blows the N4 away.

    I just hope they don’t announce and then immediately put up a pre-order. I would like some reviews from the press to see if it’s photo worthy. My wife will probably need something with a bigger battery as she already blows through her battery in about half the time I do.

      I would imagine it’s on par with g2 camera which is good enough for nice pictures.

      • J Dub

        That’s what one would think, but so far there hasn’t been a Nexus device that is really talked about when it comes to taking pictures. Sure there’s things like PhotoSphere, but that’s a kind of gimmicky thing.

  • htowngtr

    Hmmm… I like that two-tone look but not sure how it’ll look over time with dirt and oil from fingerprints.

  • fauxshizzl

    Does a white rear cover really qualify as a white phone?

  • Destroythanet

    This is a much nicer looking phone than the curved nonsense featured in the story right above this one haha.

  • I’m really not interested in the Nexus phone too. To be honest, the design and configuration of it is not very stable in comparison with the current phone lines in the same segment of the other phone companies. This makes it difficult to sell this phone.

    • Fragment your grammar much?

    • Steve B

      You’re an idiot.

    • A.Miller

      I have no idea what your main idea is.

  • Eduardo Ortiz

    This would be perfect.

    • Steve B

      Yep, that looks very nice as well.
