Nexus 5 makes brief appearance on Google Play: $349 for 16GB version (Screenshots)


The Nexus 5 is the worst kept surprise in the tech industry. We’ve seen extensive images of the upcoming Google flagship, it’s been caught on video and now it appears that we have a price for it: $349.

That price is for the entry level (16GB) model, according to Google Play. In what is surely a glitch we can see the device clearly listed in the store, but clicking on the phone doesn’t bring us an enlarged image or more details.

That wasn’t the case earlier, since Android Police was able to get a larger shot of the device — which it seems was live on the site temporarily — and here it is. Android fans will notice a lot of new icons, and in particular a new design for the Gmail icon.


Are the leaks whetting your appetite for the next big Android phone? And how about that for a great price — for a basic comparison: the new iPhone 5s retails from $649 unlocked. Let us know by voting in our poll below.
