Nexus 5 unboxing image surfaces

Still no official word from Google, however judging from the recent rash of retail inventory leaks, it looks like the prep work is being done for a soon to be launch. Rumor has it that Google will be announcing the Nexus 5 along with Android 4.4 Kit Kat on October 31 or November 1 and in the meantime, another handset image has surfaced. This one is slightly blurry and comes with little extra in terms of details, however it does appear to line up with earlier leaks.

We spotted the image being shared on Twitter, @N1troz posted a link to the image. And in the tweet he shared details of how this image is said to have come out of Ireland. Specifically, from someone at a Carphone Warehouse in Ireland. While we have yet to see this verified, this does fall in line with the leak we saw earlier in the week.

If you remember back, there was a retail inventory screenshot that leaked. That one, while for a different location, was from Carphone Warehouse. Regardless though, these inventory leaks do lead us to believe the Nexus 5 is going to be available right from the time it is announced. After all, why would they seem to be already arriving in retail back rooms.

Of course, that is nothing more than a bit of hopeful speculation at this point. Aside from some image leaks and rumored launch dates, the talk of specs seems to have settled down. Those are still expected to arrive as a 5-inch Full HD display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera.

    holy BOTTOM BEZEL… after having the LG G2, bottom bezels shouldn’t be any bigger than the G2

    • Jeff

      Because all phones use all the same internal parts and are all exactly the same. How do you know that the bezel on the Nexus 5 COULD be any smaller, have you seen the insides of the phone? Is the bottom just hollow?

      • litobirdy

        Well if rumors are true that they kind of modeled it after the LG G2. bezels shouldn’t be so huge.. LG g2 has a 5.2 inch screen massively squeezed into a great frame with little bezel.

    • newsjunkieintl

      Not true. That’s the FRONT of the phone, the plastic shipping screen protector you take off.

      The permanent Nexus 5 logo is still etched on the back.

    • Bankai

    Blurry picture. Obviously not taken with a Nexus 5 camera. Probably used an iPhone or Moto X camera. :)

    Image doesn’t mean anything. Even video can be faked today. I can make your mama have dinners with Snowden on photo, but it’s gonna be fake. Video or fake, ‘nough said.

  • bulldurham

    They have already been shipped to the carriers and it is expected that employees of those companies will be leaking photos until the official release. I still think, because of the Kit Kat connection to Android, we will be getting an announcement on Halloween.Possibly may see a contest using the wrappers from all the kit kats the kids have gathered to win a Nexus 5.

  • Rimmington

    Someone should take one of these random photos with a high quality DSLR and post it without any data to ID the camera just to see everyone speculate what phone camera took the picture.
