Here’s a brief look at the Nexus 5 as the official press image leaks

LG Nexus 5

The LG Nexus 5 has been the talk of the town for the past three months or so and has only grown in popularity over the weeks. Combine the fact that it would pack a newer version of Android (dubbed as KitKat) and we’re basically looking at the most awaited Android handset of the year. And now it seems like the curtains have been drawn from the smartphone as the official press render has leaked out courtesy of Google. In addition to the press image, a screenshot of the Play Store devices page showing the Nexus 5 listed for $349 was also leaked. Both the image source and the Play Store link have since been taken down by Google.

The high resolution press image reveals the new UI layout of Android 4.4 with the transparent navigation bar along with the redesigned icons. This is pretty much all we needed to know about the Nexus 5 before the announcement takes place in a couple of weeks’ time. The specs sheet was previously accessed thanks to a leaked user manual of the smartphone, so all we need to know now is the availability date of the smartphone after the October 28 announcement.

  1. This “mistake” was a PR leak to shut up the people claiming there will be a re-release of last year’s Nexus 4 to take the “low end” pricing and that this year’s Nexus 5 would be priced up to $500. This brief “accidental” Google Play posting was Google’s way of saying STFU on both ridiculous rumors.

    $349 for 16GB Nexus 5 is actually the same price for 16GB as last year’s Nexus 4 — but with 5″ 1080p, smaller body, Snapdragon 800, multiple LTE bands, pentaband HSPA+, CDMA, and 8MP OIS camera.

    So, if the 16GB is still $349, then the new 32GB will probably be $399?
