As shown in this leak below from serial leaker @evleaks, the tradition started with the Nexus S and continued through the next two Nexus phones, the white Nexus 5 will again be a Panda Nexus with a black front and white rear, eschewing the all white render which appeared on a Chinese site a week ago.

This leak matches up with the leaked packaging for a white Nexus which popped up last week, which also showed off the White Nexus with a black front.
Unlike the leaked render from yesterday,which showed a very un-Google like time of 7:00, the time on this render includes the 4:40 time indicating Android 4.4 will be announced with the new Nexus phone.
Also included in the tweet is the ’11/1′ which seems to indicate a November 1st launch date. With only 4 days to go till November 1st – 5 if you count a time difference – the invitations for any event set for that time will indeed need to go out pretty quickly to media in order to organise coverage, that is if Google holds an event or just mirrors last years launch which saw the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, as well as Android 4.2 launched via a blog post.
Does Google even need an event to launch their new Nexus devices and new version of Android? Will you buy a black or white Nexus 5?
