White Nexus 5 retail packaging leaks

Screen Shot 2013-10-18 at 1.17.37 PM

After the last several Nexus phones have been released in slick, sexy black, a short time later a clean, modern white variant launches. Why both colors are never available together at launch, we have no idea. But that might finally be changing this year.

New pictures of the retail packaging for the heavily leaked Nexus 5 have appeared online, showing the device in a two-tone white model. Similar to the Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus, the white Nexus 5 pictured features a white back piece, but still retains a black display. Even the bezels seem to remain black this time around, where they were white on the last two Nexus phones. As to whether or not this is the real deal, the general consensus seems to be it is. And we agree.

The fact that retail packaging for a white model is already available in the wild gives us hope that the second color option will be announced alongside the black model when it comes out presumably before the end of the month. Just don’t get your hopes up quite yet. What do you think, if the white variant launches alongside the black model, which one will you be picking up? If the display and bezel on the white model were white as well, I’d be very tempted. But alas, it looks like for me, black it is.

    That type of design doesn’t look good for how they went about it in white and black. The sides and the camera lens should be white to. At least the sides should to. It looks like a prototype the way they went about it. Maybe it’ll look better in person. They should have the standard black and all white one, and then have Google colors. Have the front plate all one color and the sides and back another color.

    Really I just hope they launch whatever colors it comes in on the day the phone comes out, because this variant change and color scheme down the line doesn’t make sense to me. Hopefully any accessories it might come with will be ready as well. So looking forward to this phone.

      I heard the white Nexus 5 is 1 inch shorter than the black one, to bring it more in line with real life conditions

      my neighbor’s sister makes $86/hr on the internet. She has been without work for six months but last month her income was $17115 just working on the internet for a few hours. my review here……… http://iop.li/FQ

        Hi kevinsoy6,

        Your sister seems to be lying to you. If she makes $86/hr and earned $17115 “just working a few hours” then it doesn’t add up. She must have worked about 200 hours last month to earn that much, which is more than the average person. So either she’s lying to you or she’s taking it from the backdoor or giving Hugh Hefner a virtual bj. Basically what I’m trying to say is, no one gives a shit about your slut sister selling herself on webcam unless ofcourse she’s doing so to give us a sample or the nexus 5′s front camera.

    Can’t wait to see how the white one looks compared to the black one. Hopefully the white looks just as sexy so I get it :D

    I’m not a fan of the two-tone color scheme. Commit to a single color, Google!

    Ugh. I want a white version but I’m not a fan of the two tones, it’s why I get the sleek black. :s but they both still look very desirable.
