In this disappointingly blurry image posted to Overclockers UK (and since removed), we see the front of the new Nexus with what’s likely a factory screen protector on the face with Nexus 5 printed on it alongside packaging which seems to match previous leaks and previous years’ Nexus phone packaging.
A Reddit user surmises that the original poster works for a large phone retailer in the UK, although we haven’t been able to confirm any such details. Notably, some UK retailers have a pretty good track record of spoiling Google’s Nexus phone launches.
If Google doesn’t release the Nexus 5 soon, we think the dam of unofficial photos will soon burst and we’ll be buying the device down at the pub from a shady character — or just picking up one that was left there.
Update: There’s been some more leaks of the Nexus 5 in the wild, these via Droid-Life which shows picture taken in an LG Service Centre in Malaysia – someone’s getting fired – which show the Nexus 5 :
Finally, it appears dummy retail units are heading to stores, with this one showing the mountain background that’s been leaked a couple of times already. Just FYI, if you like the background you can grab it from ex-Android team employee Romain Guy’s Flickr page
Update 2 (Jason): The original source image has been removed from the OC forum — the plot thickens.
Got any more leaks? Seen a unit in the wild? Take a pic and send it on through to us and share it with the world.
Are you looking forward to the Nexus 5? Do you think that Google are dragging this on a bit too much? Let us know in the comments!
