Google Nexus 5 release date teased as October 30 by Amazon

The Google Nexus 5 release date has been teased as October 30, with retailer Amazon listing the launch alongside a leaked Nexus 5 case.

Suggesting the third-party peripheral for the upcoming Google phone will go on sale later this month, Amazon.co.uk has inadvertently suggested that the Google Nexus 5 release date will be held on October 30.

The subject of much rumour and speculation, the Google Nexus 5 release date has been mooted to fall a number of times in October, with announcements on both the 28th and 31st having previously been tipped. At present Google has yet to offer any indication as to when its Google Nexus 4 follow-on will touch down.

Dubbed the Ringke Fusion, the Google Nexus 5 case is a shock absorbing bumper that will come bundled with an anti-scratch screen protector.

Shown alongside a render of the upcoming phone, the leaked case has offered no concrete details on the as yet unconfirmed phone, with no insight into the handset’s dimensions.

According to recent Google Nexus 5 rumours, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and LG G2 rival will play host to a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display alongside a redesigned, soft-touch rear body.

With a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor set to run the show, the Google Nexus 5 specs sheet looks set to be further enhanced by 2GB of RAM, a 3000mAh Lithium-Polymer battery and the option of 16GB or 32GB storage capacities.

On a camera front, the Google Nexus 5 will reportedly host an 8-megapixel rear-mounted snapper alongside a 2-megapixel secondary option up front. The Google Nexus 5 will be the first device to come pre-installed with the new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.
