It looks like the moment we’re all waiting for is near, the launch of the long-rumored Google Nexus 5. Yesterday, we saw a leaked press render of the Google Nexus 5 in white with an expected launch date of 1st November by @evleaks, which could be wrong.

Now, to add more juice to the existing rumors, a user on NeoGAF forums posted an image that appears to be of the LG Canada’s distribution center that shows piles of purported Google Nexus 5 retail boxes getting ready for shipment.

Just remember, nothing is official until it’s announced by Gooogle so let’s just take this with a pinch of salt.
It looks like we finally have the Google Nexus 5 full specifications, as the handset was posted on Wind Mobile’s Facebook page, along with all of the specifications, the post has now been removed.
