Latest release date rumor for Nexus 5 has October 31st launch date for Google Play

Latest release date rumor for Nexus 5 has October 31st launch date for Google Play
It's the biggest mystery of the fall, when will the Google Nexus 5 launch? For a while, October 15th was tipped to be the date of the phone's release along with the release of Android 4.4 KitKat. But when the clock struck 12 on October 16th and there was no word from Google, well that was like a big clue telling us that the tip was wrong. 

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.

And if it doesn't come out on that date a new rumor will emerge suggesting a different date. This is getting really old

I think PhoneArena should just stop now. I agree with the first comment, it's getting very old very quickly. You are starting to really lose your credibility for "quality sources".

I think PA is just putting out every rumor they stumble upon, that's their thing, they're not trying to look credible, obviously, just give us every info they can get. And that's fine, I usually come here if I want to be aware of every single rumor going around, but the downside is that yes, most of them are BS.

I feel like these articles are fine, as long as its labeled clearly as a crappy rumor. Don't make it sound credible and then feed us bs.

I like the look of the Nexus 5. I'm enjoying my Galaxy Nexus (Sprint) very much that it makes me reconsider purchasing and/or upgrading to any non-Nexus devices. I am tired of Samsung Android phones though and would like something new, so I'm glad that LG made this and the Nexus 4.

I really don't care about the lastest operating system. I wanted a phone with a better camera and bigger battery, so I bought an unlocked ATT LG G2 on Ebay for $450, so I'm set!

Yeppy! I have made a deal with my dad that if Nexus 5 gets announced on 31st October, he will buy me one anyhow even though it won't be coming soon to India and if it doesn't get announced on 31st October, i will have to sell my existion Galaxy S3! Btw, i made that deal because its my birthday on 31st October. Would be a best gift from both - Google and my dad!
