The Nexus 5 hasn’t been officially unveiled yet, but we have tons of reasons to believe it’ll be on its way shortly. From FCC leaks to Googlers accidentally using the device in the public eye, we have no doubt Google is looking to bring us another Nexus handset within the next month (likely manufactured by LG). Now, another bit of confirmation has hit the web.
Spigen, the third-party accessories maker known for screen protectors and cases, has published a listing for Nexus 5 screen protectors on Amazon. It joins screen protectors from this year’s most popular devices, such as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4.
The image for the listing shows a rather blank, black slate, though you can tell where the screen separates from the bezel. It doesn’t look much different from the Nexus 4 at first, though the front-facing camera is pictured on the left (whereas the Nexus 4’s is on the right).
Another interesting thing to take away from this listing is the date that it’s expected to be available. That’ll happen October 30th, apparently — does this mean anything? It’s tough to say. The Nexus 4 was launched mid-November, so a late October release for the sequel isn’t out of the question. It could just be a placeholder date, but there’s nothing to give us any indication either way.
We’ll be patiently awaiting official details from Google in the weeks to come, but in the meantime this is about as much as we have to go on in terms of a possible release date. What do you think?
