Picture of Nexus 5 on Photobucket pulled
It has become a rule of thumb that when a leaked photograph of something is pulled, the subject of the snapshot was the real thing. Take a picture from photo sharing site Photobucket that allegedly showed a Google Nexus 5 as it was taken out of the box. Besides the phone, you can see the box right next to the handset. One minute the picture was there, and the next minute it was not. That kind of thing usually happens when someone decided to take a picture of something they were not supposed to photograph. Actually, it probably is the distribution of the photograph that upset the powers that be.

The tipster said that we should be seeing the phone in the next few days which dovetails with the November 1st date leaked by reliable source evleaks. We could see some type of announcement tomorrow followed by the phone's actual release on Friday. With the amount of publicity that this phone has generated, fingers are being crossed by potential buyers, at Google and LG, hoping that this time there are enough phones to go around.

Meanwhile, you can check out the picture of the Nexus 5 below. Like we said, it is no longer visible at Photobucket.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster

How you get a 1 out of all that? Besides they dont make sense, they have nothing in common besides being numbers. I could see if they were primary numbers but they aint even that. Also, how come in the picture it look like a Nexus S?? Is it S or 5?

If you are confused about those numbers ,please allow me to help you out . Those are numbers representing the series of alphabets ... If A is 1 and b is 2 so on and so forth

Well go on with your smart self. I get it now. I thought it was one of those tricky mathematical formulary things like y=x+y⅔(n) and those numbers were like the values you multiply or somethin. Anyway, thanks now I got it. Gonna have to look at this phone, I dont know to much about them Googler phones but, anything gotta be better than what I already have. Thanks

how can you call it awesome, if it hasnt been released yet, while we have leaks, what makes this more special than any other android phone with similar specs, besides price, unless they fix the camera and speakers which have been bad on every nexus I will not be interested.

Nexus 5 will be a disapointment for having a rubbish battery life.

Without good battery life, you might as well throw the phone in the bin!

I would not call a 2300 mAh battery rubbish, you're being overly dramatic or trollish. Each updated version of android is more efficient so it will gain the benefits of 4.4. If you READ the break down of the device from the leaked manual you would see that it has a number of low power parts (ex: MPU-6515 and DW8755). Expect this to overall be more power efficient and just not need as big of a battery.

Play store updated just before 11:08 this morning, 32GB phone was not initially showing up I just changed the 16GB in the URL to 32B and it came up. Ordered it within 2 minutes (yeah google wallet) of it going live. Order is pending.

i won't judge battery life until we get a hands on of the actual device and know how battery efficient the new update makes the phone. even though the battery specs r quite dissaponting i must admit lol

How does 2300 mAh get to be considered battery rubbish? HTC One has a 2300 and it last well over 15 hours and sometimes past 30 hours for me (Android Edition)

I'm curious how well it will perform in offscreen tests.

I'm ready to buy and I already have a iPhone 5s. I will only recognize Nexus devices. Told myself that I will not have another android phone/tablet unless it's always up to date on day one.

Me too. I won't have anything but a nexus if I go back to android. The updates are important.

That nexus looks nice.
