Rumor: Nexus 5 release date set for October 31 (Google Play), November 7-8 (Canada)
Google did not announce new products during its October 24 event, but the company is now rumored to soon launch its next flagship Android smartphone, the Nexus 5.
According to a tip received by MobileSyrup, the Nexus 5 will start selling on October 31 from the Google Play Store, with November 7-8 reportedly being the release date set for various mobile operators from Canada that will apparently launch the device. The carriers list for the handset includes Rogers, Bell, Telus, Koodo and Virgin.
Naturally, we’ll remind you that this is just a rumor, although we will say that this isn’t the first time we hear that October 31 may be the Google Play Store launch date for the Nexus 5.
Furthermore, the same publication posted a supposedly leaked press image for the Telus Nexus 5 not too long ago, with the image (or at least part of it – see below) being confirmed by Google’s Nexus 5 Play Store listing.
That said, we’ll notice that this has been rather a quiet week for Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat rumors, but we may be looking at the proverbial calm before the storm.
