Nexus 5 Release Date Teased for November 1st

The Nexus 5 release date could come on Friday November 1st following an October 31st announcement, according to new information from a well-known leaker.

The Nexus 5 release has been rumored for several dates in October, and now it looks like it might come on November 1st, the same day Apple’s iPad Air arrives in retail stores.

Google already pushed the Nexus 5 to the Google Play store last week, but that mistake was quickly rectified as Google pulled the listing and put the Nexus 4 back online in its place. This past week Google also started taking Nexus 4 orders again for some users, but the device is now out of stock.

Rumors suggest Google is planning a Halloween launch event for the Nexus 5, which would tie into the Android 4.4 KitKat update. The new version of Android that we expect will debut on the Nexus 5 is nicknamed KitKat, in a partnership with the candy bar of the same name.

The Nexus 5 release date should arrive in less than a week according to a new leak.

The Nexus 5 release date is possible on November 1st, and it could come in white and black, according to a new tweet by @evleaks on Sunday afternoon.

In the tweet, the famed leaker simply states, “In white. 11/1.”, with the Nexus 5 press render shown in the image above.

This source is a well-known leaker of industry plans especially for Android devices. This is the same device as he shared on Saturday in black. The two devices show a mountain range though the renders do not show the same time.

The Nexus 5 release date is close as companies are already shipping cases for the new device. The Nexus 5 comes with a 5-inch display and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. This new Nexus will come with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 2,300mAh battery according to multiple leaks.

We don’t have the full Nexus 5 dimensions yet, but the Nexus 5 case in the video below is close enough to show what the Nexus 5 size should look like next to the Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 3, Nexus 4 and iPhone 5.

Google may immediately start taking orders for the Nexus 5 on November 1st and based on past launches could offer two-day shipping which will place the Nexus 5 in the hands of shoppers as soon as Monday November 4th.

Google may also announce a new Nexus 10 tablet, a smart watch and or some type of connected device, but it’s not clear if all of these gadgets are ready for a reveal.

    Gotta lol at evleaks. Quality man!
    It would be funny and heartbreaking at the same time if we was just trolling us all again and the white version was just a mockup of the black one posted a few hours before it, and he just made a release date up.

      EVLeaks has been more wrong that right. He lost all credibility with the Nexus 5, as did idiot Taylor Wimberly who stated Motorola would release a Nexus phone by end of the year (as if he had inside information, when anyone who had tracked this story knew it was LG since May.) Neither of them should be allowed to post anything about Nexus phones.

      Except that with the IPad mini coming out, it would make sense for google to have pushed the date. I dunno. I’m hopeful.

    Makes sense. In all four past Nexus phones, Google has NEVER released it before November. Twice (#3, #4) they’ve ANNOUNCED it in October, but those two years waited until November for release. The other two were even later, December (#2) and January (#1).

    And yes, in that 3-month period of annual release cycle (November, December, January), January comes after November.

    So, this year looks like a repeat for #5 — October ANNOUNCEMENT, November RELEASE. I’ve been predicting this all year long.

    It is hilarious to believe anything from any of these sites, the ball moves faster than a speeding bullet.

    Another site mentioned 28 Oct 2013, now this genuine crapola.(code word for BS ) . But if you wanna wait I have lawn chairs you can use while you wait.
