White Google Nexus 5 leaks suggesting multiple colours at launch

Images of a white Google Nexus 5 have leaked online ahead of the phone’s formal unveiling, suggesting the phone will launch in a pair of colour schemes.

With the traditional black Google Nexus 5 having been caught on camera countless times in recent weeks, newly leaked images have shown the handset’s packaging, with a white Google Nexus 5 clearly depicted against the blue box.

Further Google Nexus 5 specs tipped for inclusion will reportedly see an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera line up alongside a 1.6-megapixel forward-facing snapper and a 3000mAh Lithium-Polymer battery.

Set to be manufactured by LG, the Google Nexus 5, will feature a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display as well as the now commonplace, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and 4G connectivity options.
