- Picture: Google
The latest Nexus 5 rumors have seen some alleged pictures of the device's actual retail box, according to various reports this week.
Images that were published by a Korean site known as UnderKG featured a box that has a picture of a new smartphone called the Nexus 5. The photos were originally posted to the site's Facebook page and have been taken down. However, some users were able to download them before the site did so.
The box features the same minimalist design as the package for the Nexus 7 (2013). It has the same blue color and it shows a white version of the Nexus 5.
The Nexus 5 is expected to launch with Google's next-gen operating system Android 4.4, KitKat.
The Android 4.4, KitKat release date might have recently been hinted at by Google.
The company posted up an image on its KitKat Google+ and Facebook pages that showed the Bugdroid dancing. They also wrote the following comment with it: "Everybody dance now! #AndroidKITKAT."
Android Community attempted to decipher the meaning behind the post and came up with something interesting regarding the software's release date. The company made a reference to a song released on Oct. 18 1990. The record is 4 minutes and 4 seconds long which matches up to the 4.4 in the KitKat name.
Other rumors point to Android 4.4, KitKat featuring a default SMS app.
Google advised SMS app developers to prepare their apps for the arrival of the software so users will be able to switch to the company's own "default SMS app."
