    Updated: Previous Nexus 5 pic replaced with full-sized press shot. Thanks for the awesome scoop Preach2k! Great work!


    Although the link is dead now. Here it is: The Nexus 5, for $349.

    Ad reads: "Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways. Starting at $349."

    That's a pretty good sign that we'll see more than one aka retail version, meaning we'll see more than one storage size. The closed link showed the 16-gigabyte version.

    Also worth noting is that if you tried to click the image, the URL was Nexus5_black_16GB (but it took me to a 404 page) and that implies different colors.
    Not that I mind because I like my phones black, but some people like colors

    @asgard probably just a black or white. im sure whatever color it comes in beside black won't be available at launch. I love everything about this phone except it's not a Moto... oh well, take my money google.

    Like the look. Hate the button placement deviating from the G2 as well as the smaller battery. Nexus 5 in the G2 body as it is with the same battery would have been a winner IMO.

    I recall reading somewhere that a white version would be released. There was also speculation that the 32GB version of the phone would have a 3000mAh battery, but I'm less inclined to believe that.

    Wait I'm gonna pay $349 and it doesn't have at least 32GB? Wtf is in this phone? A freaking satellite? Like that price is outrageous who in their right minds would pay for that?

    Check out the off-contract price for a new Galaxy S3 (an "old" phone). $349 isn't outrageous at all. It's simply the unsubsidized price of the device. For someone like me who has to pay full price for their next phone - if I want to hold onto unlimited data on Verizon - this doesn't seem too bad!

    Oh I thought it was subsidized/on-contract. That is my bad.
