Let’s kick the day off with a couple more Google Nexus 5 rumours.
First up we have what appears to be the retail packaging for the next Nexus smartphone courtesy of Underkg.com. The device picture on the box lines up nicely with the one that Google accidentally let slip on the Google Play store briefly earlier except for one new detail. It would appear that the Nexus 5 could come in both black and white. Or rather, there will be a variant with a white backplate and a black front.
The first image gives us a look at the back of the Nexus 5 with its camera in the top left corner. The backplate is white.
The second image gives us a profile shot. It clearly shows us that the front is black but the back is white.
Now look back at the top image which first surfaced nearly a month ago. Could the device on top be a white Nexus 5? It’s certainly appears so.
A second report, this one by Italian TuttoAndroid confirms that Google will offer both 16GB and 32GB models of the Nexus 5. But it contradicts an earlier rumour that suggested that the two would come with different batteries, the former with a 2,300mAh one and the latter with a 3,000mAh one. Instead, both will come with a 2,300mAh battery.
TuttoAndroid‘s source also weighs in to say that the Google Nexus 5 will launch by the end of the month. Without giving an exact date, they suggest it is only days away.
