Could the Nexus 5 launch in less than a week?


The latest round of Nexus 5 rumors has touched upon pricing, hardware options, and revealed a service manual: all the sorts of things we might see crop up in the final days before a phone’s launch. But just when is Google going to flip the switch and make the Nexus 5 official? One rumor claims that the phone could launch in under a week, making its debut next Tuesday, on October 15.

This info apparently originates from talk that’s been going around Google Launchpad, a get-together for startups, where attendees have been relaying the rumor. Next Tuesday might seem like short notice for a launch, with no invitations having yet gone out, but maybe after last year’s event was canceled due to weather, Google decided it simply preferred a more low-key, online-only announcement.

In addition to the Nexus 5, next Tuesday would also mark the arrival of Android 4.4. This is all making October 15 look like it’s shaping up to be a busy day, as we’d previously heard that’s when HTC might be looking to announce its own One Max phablet. We’ll be happy to see that one arrive, regardless, but if this Google rumor is true, HTC might be dealing with some unexpected distractions.
