Google Nexus 5 release date again pegged for October 31

The Google Nexus 5 release date remains shrouded in rumour and speculation, with the flagship Android phone once again tipped to make an appearance on October 31.

With the Google Nexus 4 follow-on widely believed to be heading for launch later this month, time is running out for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One rival to make an October appearance.

However, with a Google Nexus 5 release date having been tipped for October 31, the Halloween based unveiled has once again been mooted, with Canadian networks and industry sources reportedly teasing the phone’s imminent arrival.

“We’ve been tipped that Google will make the Nexus 5 available via Google Play on Thursday, October 31st,” Canadian tech site Mobile Syrup has reported. Citing unnamed sources, the outlet has suggested the Android 4.4 KitKat powered phone will “then arrive on Canadian carriers — Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Koodo and Virgin — up to eight days later, either November 7th or 8th.”

Far from the first time that the Google Nexus 5 release date has been mooted, just yesterday case manufacturer Spigen teased the phone’s arrival for the “end of October,” listing accessories for the handset to go on sale next week.

Tipped to be a high-end handset brimmed with a raft of premium components, the Google Nexus 5 features list will reportedly see the LG manufactured handset boast a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor alongside 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera and the all new Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system.

Expected to sport a 5-inch 1080p Full HD phone, the Google Nexus 5 will reportedly add a raft of connectivity options including NFC, Wi-Fi and 4G.
