Nexus 5 retail box leaks, hints to white version
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.
