We’ve seen the Nexus 5 in so many leaks, it’s becoming hard to keep count. From Google accidentally capturing the device in their KitKat reveal video, to uncovered FCC filings, and even the device getting pictured in a bar — where hasn’t the Nexus 5 popped up is probably a better question.
As far as release date and timing, there’s been rumors floating around the ‘nets that Google could be planning to unveil the Nexus 5 as early as October and with that, the next version of Android 4.4 KitKat in the process. Adding a little more fuel to this rumor is Nestle — who we all know has partnered with the Google for the naming of their next Android release — and according to their German Facebook page, they seem to be under the impression that Android 4.4 KitKat will be released in October.
Now, normally we wouldn’t place much clout in a confectionery maker’s claims to things technology in nature (especially a social media employee), but given Nestle’s new close relationship with Google, we’re definitely scratching our chins on this. Given that October is just around the corner, we imagine Google is getting prepared to send their press invites in which they’ll want to give attendees ample time to plan for the trip. Should be confirmed any day now.
