For Android users, Google’s latest new Nexus smartphone may be introduced by November. That is, if well-known tech tipster @evleaks can be believed.
The often-reliable Twitter channel recently posted images of what appear to be a two-tone black and white Nexus 5 (pictured below), the successor to the Nexus 4 Android phone. Previously, @evleaks had also posted a black version (pictured above) of the device.
However, details are very sketchy.

New Nexus 5 Could be Priced at $349
For example, the second @evleaks tweet mentions November 1 but not whether this might be a release date or the date the new phone is officially unveiled or both.
Earlier this month, in what feels like an orchestrated leak, Google leaked images and a $349 retail price for the new phone in an apparent glitch on its Google Play website. Images of the phone were even leaked in a press shot apparently intended for Canadian carrier Telus, reports 9to5 Google.
There’s even a leaked video of the new device below:
If the $349 price tag is true, that would make the device more expensive than he current Nexus 4. Back in August, Google knocked $100 off the price of the device. So the 8GB model of the older phone is now priced at $199 and the 16GB model at $249.
UPDATE: The Google Nexus 5 is now available. It was released one day sooner than previously speculated, on October 31st. You can find it here.
