Pure white Nexus 5 is bogus, but leads to plenty of other colorful fakes
We were suspicious of the image, and we grew even more suspicious when we received a tip pointing to images that were clearly modified versions of the black Nexus 5 press render, but showed the device in various colors like purple, orange, red, and silver. Just after that as we were starting to look at the render of the pure white Nexus 5, Android Police posted the rumor smash explanation, meaning we didn't have to finish our research.
As AP points out, the pure white Nexus 5 is nothing more than the black version with inverted colors on everything except for the camera lens and flash. To prove how easy it is to make a fake like this, they made a gif, and some other color variants. We've also added in the other fake color renders, just so you have it all in one spot, and we don't need to deal with the rumors again. All of these are fake, but it definitely makes us eager to see Google offer the Moto X color customization on a Nexus device.

Wish they were more than renders. Looks so much better than Lumias and I am a big admirer of their build quality.

If these were the real ones I would take the red and black one. Sadly it will most likely just be black.

Yea... We know that. Someone specifically made it to see how a white Nexus 5 would look. I think it was WoozleWuzzle. S/he even says it's just inverted... What a fantastic waste of news space. Fluff for clicks. Every one of these pointless news posts make me lose more and more belief in this sites journalism quality.
So PhoneArena, Thanks for pointing out the bloody obvious!

if this was real I would be torn between the original Black, #4 or #6

the 5c was a copy of the lumias, so essentially they would be copying lumia...

i think the best looking is the silver and black, the other uni-color ones are not so great

meh white/white looked the best to me. So modern and clean. With other colors, the design of the nexus 5 is okayish not really impressive. Seems colors make a big difference.

Beautiful. I think it's going to comes with different colors since IPhone 5s has different colors now.
