A new Nexus 5 press render leaks

A new Nexus 5 press render leaks
The question of when the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 would be released is something that has been clawing at tech bloggers for weeks, and it has spurred some of the most ridiculous theories that we've seen reaching for clues where there obviously aren't any clues. But, such is the life of a fan. We love tech, and just as much as we want to know what's up with Apple's next move, or Microsoft, we want to know what's next for the Google Nexus line.

We've basically figured out what to expect with the Nexus 5 specs, the design, and even the price point, but we still don't know when the device will finally see store shelves. The general idea is that it will launch at the end of the month in the U.S. and in the first week of November in Canada, but obviously we can't say for sure Either way, we do have a new leak of press renders of the Nexus 5. 

The leaks come from none other than uber-leaker @evleaks, and it looks relatively similar to what we've already seen. It has the new homescreen UI that we're expecting with Android 4.4. The only difference is that the last press render had the time of 8:40, and this one has the time of 7:00; but, that doesn't really mean much. There is also a new background in this render, but it likely isn't the default.

The time in the render is 7:00 it must mean it will be released once 7 human sacrifices have been made! Right? Or maybe it will be announced in the next 7 seconds! This render is most likely from an accessories manufacturer or made by a fan. It looks far from final. I'm expecting the announcement on Tuesday, but I won't be crushed if its late. I just updated my s3 to today's cm10.2 nightly, its running fine for now.

@evleaks have been very credible in past so its not difficult to assume that this is final version of the device.

"Likely isn't the default." Actually it isn't the default, anybody else remember when the actual device was accidentally put on Google Play?

Pretty sure this is fan made. There are too many flaws in the graphics work.

I hope Google fires the head of their marketing department asap. This kind of repetitive news are causing negative effects

I've already decided that this will be the replacement to my S3, but I'm hoping that Google has improved the camera, battery life and hopefully found a way to implement the SD800s always listening feature. I'm also hoping that Google creates a new wireless charger or found a way to increase wireless charging times.

Is it Google's fault if fans/phone arena are putting fake photos/renders on web &call it leak.. ?? the phone would be released only when it's ready & commercially viable..

Jokes on us guys, there is no new Nexus phone. This was all a huge prank by the peevish Google people. Go about your daily live as if you weren't lied to and lead on.

Enough with these countdowns. Just stop even saying it Phonearena. Its really really getting lame. Its not a official release that the time on the phone would mean something.

You can see reviews on the net, I think they always review the music quality, look for reviews for: lg g2, galaxy s4, htc One... Or just wait till this nexus 5 comes out and take a look at its reviews.
