White Nexus 5 And Possible November 1 Release Date Tipped By @evleaks

It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".

Another Nexus 5 Press Render Surfaces Courtesy Of @evleaks

If you've been on pins and needles for another fix of Nexus hype, @evleaks has provided something you may like. In a post to Twitter this evening, @evleaks shared a new press render of the Nexus 5 - one that matches the Telus Nexus 5 leak we covered last week.

As usual, @evleaks' post is sparse on information, reading only "Nexus 5, by LG, 2013." And this isn't exactly something we haven't seen before - at this point, we've pretty much seen the Nexus 5 from all angles.

At the unsubsidized price, the combined value of all those phones is more than twelve million dollars.

Update: CyanogenMod is also ready to make its debut appearance on the AT&T version of the LG G2 (d800), and Verizon nightlies have returned.
