While we patiently wait for Google and LG to officially announce the upcoming Nexus 5, the leakage continues to happen online. As noted by Android Central, several people have posted pictures of themselves with the Nexus 5, plus numerous dummy devices have reportedly popped up at carrier retail locations.
As for Canada, we’ve received a tip that Virgin Mobile will soon be receiving stock and that an odd looking Nexus 5 iShieldz screen protectors arrived, sporting what looks to be the HTC One placeholder as the device. The only resemblance to the Nexus 5 is the sticker indicating what’s in the package.
