Nexus 5 cases from Spigen appear online with "End of October" release date
The Google Nexus 5 is coming sooner than later. We're pretty sure it is, given all the leaks being thrown back and forth around the interwebs. And we know what hardware it will be powered by, we know what software it is going to run, we even know what it is going to look like. Clearly, the Nexus 5 isn't exactly the most well-kept secret ever. 

Today, our attention was drawn by another leak that will surely be of interest to anyone waiting for the Google Nexus 5. Spigen – the company known for producing high-quality smartphone accessories – has already unveiled a range of Nexus 5 cases and bumpers, all of which are scheduled to ship at the end of October. Sure, Spigen did tease these on Twitter several days ago, but now we get to see the cases in their full glory, along with Google's upcoming smartphone, of course.

The Google Nexus 5 smartphone is expected to be announced officially in the coming days, with some rumors pointing at October 31 as a potential announcement date, while others claim we'll hear an announcement on October 26. Check out our round-up for more info on the Google Nexus 5 release date, price, and specifications.

Thanks for the tip!

I'd be the first to say gold phones are dumb, but I must say, the matte black with gold trim case is one of the more attractive cases I've seen on a phone. Sleek, simple, slim, perfect. I'll be getting one of them when google finally gets around to releasing it.

Not an LG smartphone fan even remotely, but that thing looks pretty sexy in that case.

Haha right now everybody waiting for the 26th, because one random dude implied in a post that an embargo would end on that day. Next thing you know, nothing happens on the 26th and everybody starts waiting for the 28th...

Nexus 5 without a case looks pretty dull but with this case it's looking cool.

I really like the Neo Hybrid. I also hope Spigen make a glass screen protector for the Nexus 5 as well
