Nexus 5 Pre-Registration Drops Early, Pics of Warehouse Stocks Leak

Google’s Nexus devices have always provided the purest Android experience with top of the line power, so it’s no surprise that the latest is hotly anticipated. Leaked pics of the new Nexus 5, made by LG, have been popping up in recent weeks and now Canadian carrier WIND Mobile made it official. Then it was promptly removed.

WIND’s pre-reg showed up on the company’s Facebook page, but has since been removed. So it looks like it was  a little premature. The pre-reg page did show the specs of the new Nexus 5, however, which are about what we were expecting.

Screen: 4.95-inch 1920×1080 display (445 ppi) Corning Gorilla Glass 3
Cameras: 1.3MP front facing 8MP rear facing OIS
Weight: 130 grams
Dimensions: 69.17 x 137.84 x 8.59 mm
Operating System: OS Android 4.4, KitKat
Chipset: 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
Wireless: Wi-Fi (2.4G/5G) 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC (Android Beam), Bluetooth 4.0
Storage / Ram: 16GB or 32GB, internal storage 2GB RAM
Ports & Connectors: microUSB, SlimPort enabled, 3.5mm stereo audio jack, Dual microphones, Ceramic power and volume buttons

WIND removed the pre-registration and has made no more comment, but another leak came from a Canadian LG distribution center. The pics (featured at the top of the page) clearly show the Nexus 5 packaging. There are pallets upon pallets of the device in that warehouse!

With stocks like that ready to go, and a pre-registration graphics primed, it can’t be long until the Nexus 5 drops in Canada. It’s safe to assume it will be coming to the U.S. around the same time.
