Not a lot of you might know this but, there’s this search giant called Google who just so happen to make Android – you know, the Operating System that’s running on most smartphones these days. Well, every year this company takes it upon themselves to release a device called the Nexus, to show off just what they can do with stock Android, without those pesky OEMs like Samsung and HTC messing with their UI and experience. Oh, who are we kidding, you guys know all about the Nexus 5 already and so do we. Today’s the 31st of October and it’s a pretty fitting day for the Nexus 5 to be announced on. All signs and teases are pointing to today for an official announcement of the Nexus 5.
Our UK readers will like this latest leak that our friends over at Pocket-Lint have found, stock of the Nexus 5 has hit Carphone Warehouse stores. Which has been selling the Nexus devices since Samsung’s first attempt, the Nexus S. Last night we got an exclusive look at an animated GIF of the Nexus 5, we know it’s coming to Sprint and we know that, as usual, it’s going to be available in white. Just don’t hold out on being able to buy one in white for at least a little while yet.
Pocket-Lint’s source even hinted at today for an announcement but, if we’re honest we’re not sure if retailers like Carphone Warehouse will be told when the device is going to become official, just what the street date is, when they can start selling the device. There are Nexus 5s out there in the wild already, we know that much but, the device hasn’t gone up for general sale yet. Which probably has something to do with the fact that, as of writing, the Nexus 5 isn’t even an official device.
