Nexus 5 Launch Date Set For 1 November?

Nexus 5 Leak

The Nexus 5 is one of the most anticipated smartphone announcements for the second half of 2013, and the big day is getting ever closer. Many expected a launch earlier on this month, but it’s becoming more likely the phone will be announced nearer the end of October, with the 31st being one of the more recent suggestions.

Now, another date has turned up, along with a set of official-looking press shots of the phone, leaked through the @evleaks Twitter account. Both a black and a white version of the phone can be seen, complete with a 1 November release/announcement date. It’s not clear which will take place on the date, but it could be the phone will go on sale then after its October 31 announcement.

As we’ve seen before, the phone has clear Nexus branding on the rear, and a prominent surround for the camera lens, plus a small LED flash unit underneath. LG’s logo can be seen at the base of the rear panel.

Although there are no specs leaked this time around, we’ve heard plenty about it before. The screen is expected to measure 5-inches and have a 1080p resolution, while a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor should be inside. The rear camera could have 8-megapixels, while a choice of 16GB or 32GB worth of internal storage space should be available. There’s also the chance the 32GB version may have a larger 3000mAh battery.

One of the most important aspects of a modern Nexus phone is its price, and leaks have indicated it’ll start at $300 in America, making it around £185 in the UK, but expect it to be a little more than this when it’s actually put on sale.
