The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing rumours, has also suggested the device will officially be unveiled on Friday, 1 November.

The white version of the Nexus 5 appears to follow the same design as the Nexus 4, utilising a white finish on the back, but a remaining black on both the front and sides.

While the Nexus 5 is yet to be officially unveiled, a number of leaks have been published over the past few weeks.

The phone is expected to have a 4.95in, full HD IPS display, will be powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and will have 2GB of RAM.

The Nexus 5 will also come with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS), a front-facing 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, and a 2300mAh battery.

Like most Nexus devices, the Nexus 5 will not have removable storage. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB models, an upgrade over the Nexus 4's 8GB and 16GB options.

The biggest technical addition to the Nexus 5 will be 4G-connectivity, a feature that was lacking in the Nexus 4.

Last week, the Nexus 5 briefly appeared on the US Google Play Store before disappearing very quickly. US Web site The Verge reported that the phone was listed for US$349, which was the same price the 16GB model Nexus 4 sold for when it debuted last year.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
