Latest release date rumor for Nexus 5 has October 31st launch date for Google Play
Now we've seen a number of newly rumored potential launch dates for the next stock Android handset, all clustered around the last few days of October. The latest rumor has the Google Nexus 5 being launched on the Google Play Store on October 31st. That would be all treat and no trick for the Android faithful.
And the rest of the rumor has a November 7th or 8th launch for the Nexus 5 in Canada among carriers Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Koodo and Virgin.
Last year, the Google Nexus 4 sold out on the Google Play Store so fast on launch day that it set the tone for a long time, with demand for the model outstripping supply. Considering that the Google Nexus 5 is no slouch in the specs department with its 5 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, 443ppi pixel density, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and LTE connectivity, LG hopefully turned to the Keebler elves to produce enough phones to prevent a repeat of last year's shortages.
