Nexus 5 also coming in white, leaked packaging pics hint

Good news for those averse to glossy black smart phones -- the Nexus 5 may also be coming in white.

Averse to buying glossy black smart phones? You may be in luck, as Google's upcoming Nexus 5 may be coming in white.

Pictures that appear to portray the Nexus 5's packaging were spied by Phandroid, seemingly having surfaced at Korean-language site Underkg.com.

In the purported pictures of the Nexus 5 boxes, which you can see above, it appears that the white version of Google's next flagship Android phone will keep its regular black front, but bring a snowy-hued rear to the party.

There's no guarantee that these photos are real, so as with all tech rumours, we'd recommend taking these snaps with a pinch of salt.

That said, Google is no stranger to white mobiles -- The Nexus 4 came in both black and white, for instance, and offered the same  two-tone look for its white variant . Up until now, all the leaked snaps of the much-anticipated mobile have portrayed a black smart phone.

The Nexus 4 came in white, for instance, and offered the same  two-tone look for its lighter-toned variant . Up until now, all the leaked snaps of the much-anticipated mobile have shown a black smart phone.

The next Nexus will likely make its debut this month, alongside Android 4.4 KitKat -- the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. Cryptic clues have tech fans guessing at the Nexus 5's arrival date , while accessories listings online hint that the longed-for smart phone could be on sale before the end of the month .

Very recently we got our first official look at the Nexus 5, when Google posted details of the phone to Google Play , shortly before taking them down again.

In the short time the listing was online, we gleaned that the Nexus 5 will cost $349. That equates to roughly £215, but there's no word yet on what the exact UK price will be.

What are you hoping to see in the next Nexus? Would you buy a black model, or opt for white? Stick your speculation in the comments, or over on our Facebook wall.
