    The Nexus 5 leaks are coming in hard and fast: after Google itself slipped a press shot of the new device on the Play Store, confirming its appearance, price, and name, now what looks to be the retail box of the device showed up on a Korean site.

    The images below were published by Korean site UnderKG, then quickly pulled down for reasons we don’t know (possibly on LG’s request?). However, some users managed to download the shots from UnderKG’s Facebook page, which has also been taken down since then.

    The retail box features the same minimalist design as the retail package of the Nexus 7 (2013), including the exact same nuance of blue. Interestingly, the box shows the white version of the Nexus 5, which, until now, we only suspected it existed.

    Now that we know the price of the Nexus 5, there’s just one more crucial detail to uncover – the release date. The most credible rumors suggest Google will launch the new Nexus at the end of the month, possibly on October 31.

      I wonder what Google is waiting for as this is becoming beyond ridiculous.

        The us government shutdown probably delayed them by a couple of days

      google’s none-hype leaks are ridiculous as the phone will be bought anyway…until it’s out of stock again…

    • Mihnea

      Take my money now!

    • Angel Cervantes

      I believe they are holding the release back so they can stock up on devices to avoid the Nexus 4 buying spree fiasco where they sold out very quickly

        *I hope :D

    • Lee

        so you’re complaining about an unreleased unconfirmed phone release?

    • Brendon Brown

      White Nexus 5 ? Sounds … Sexy !

    • Tom Clowes-Whitby

      would probably solve the visible fingerprint problem.

      Halloween makes sense.. KitKat 4.4.. trick or treating tradition implies Candy.. makes sense.

    • Taras Lanchev

    • RanRu

      Uh… what is that logo supposed to be? (The UnderKG one)

      • AndroidBrian

        A person lifting the KG sign. Get your mind out of the gutter. Jk, it does look like some little dude is humping the sign.

      • Bogdan Petrovan

        Under one KG. Because heavy stuff sucks. (seriously)

      Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – 1rq7
