Nexus 5 appears in white and 3000 mAh battery appears a no-go

There have been plenty of Nexus 5 images leaks up until this point, though, the one that surfaced last night was a bit nicer as compared to some of what we have been seeing. For those who missed it, a Nexus 5 image along with a $349 price tag briefly appeared in the Play Store. But with that having been said, it looks like we have another equally interesting Nexus 5 image leak.

This latest takes us back to in-the-wild style and the reason for these being special is due to the color. The image is showing what is said to be the Nexus 5 retail packaging -- with the phone on the box being white. The images first appeared on Underkg.com, but have since been removed. The packaging appears to be similar to what we have been seeing from Google. But the important thing to remember, these images have yet to be proven real. And in fact, we are more than a bit skeptical.

Nonetheless, they are fun to see and suggest the Nexus 5 could be available in at least two colors -- the often-leaked black and white. Anyway, looking at the images we can see what appears to be a white Nexus 5, with the back being white and the front and sides retaining the darker shade. Anyway, check out the three-image gallery below and begin debating the authenticity. Or, the lack thereof.

Aside from the new potential of the Nexus 5 arriving in white, there has also been some further discussion on the battery and storage options. Earlier reports were suggesting the handset would arrive with a 2300 mAh battery or a 3000 mAh battery. It was said those battery options would depend on the amount of internal storage.

Well, according to a new report coming from TuttoAndroid, there will only be a 2300 mAh available. Basically, it is looking like Google will release the Nexus 5 with 16GB and 32GB storage options, but that both will have the 2300 mAh battery. Otherwise, the handset is also expected to arrive with a 5-inch 1080p display and Snapdragon 800 processor. Still now word on an announcement date, but given the rumors, it does appear that will be coming sooner, rather than later.

    This should prove the 2300 mAh in N5 gives a loooong battery life with software tweaks. Otherwise, a failure. Lets see Google!

      Very true. I hope to see some great battery life.

      When the phone is only 350 off contract not really a failure

        But you can’t live with a greatest and latest OS with battery draining device. Just doesn’t fit well.

    The the 3000 mAh battery rumor was ridiculous. It would mean putting the Nexus 5 back through FCC certification tests. The leaked manual only showed 2300 mAh.

    Battery performance should be very good. My Nexus 7 tablet doesn’t have 3000 mAh and I can get a good 14 hours of use even with a much bigger screen than the N5 will have. But no removable battery when the Note3 has a 3200 mAh removable battery was the deciding factor for me. My Note 3’s battery life is INSANELY good. Puts my Razr Maxx to shame.
