Nexus 5 Accidentally Shows Up On Google Play, Is Promptly RemovedBy: Zach Walton - October 18, 2013
The Nexus 5 has been the worst kept secret out of Google all year. We’ve known about it for months, and we’ve even seen video of it time and time again. Now Google itself is getting in on the leaking action via its official Google Play store.
Droid-Life reports that the Google Play store was updated last night with the Nexus 5. It was obviously a case of somebody prematurely pulling the trigger as the device was quickly removed from the store, but that didn’t stop everybody from grabbing pictures of the device.
So, without further ado, here’s the best looking shot you’ll see of the Nexus 5 this week:
That’s one good looking phone. Sure, we’ve already seen pictures of it, but this press render really nails just how beautiful Google’s latest phone really is.
Aside from the image leaks, the Google Play leak also confirmed that the Nexus 5 will start at $349. It’s assumed that this means the 16GB Nexus 5 will cost $349 while the 32GB Nexus 5 will cost $400. It’s a bit more expensive than what the rumors were suggesting, but it’s still a really good price for what is essentially an LG G2.
As for other details, there wasn’t much else. The only thing we have to go on is Google’s description of the device – “Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways.” That doesn’t really tell us a lot. What it does tell us, in a roundabout way, is that the Nexus 5 is practically almost here. If the conspiracy theorists are right, we’ll see it and Android 4.4 on October 28.[Image: Droid-Life]
