Red Google Nexus 5 leaks ahead of upcoming release

Images of a red Google Nexus 5 have leaked online ahead of the vibrantly hued handset’s expected release in the coming weeks.

Seemingly set to build on the standard black and white Google Nexus 5 handsets already available, the new red hued option has appeared in Vietnam just days after it was suggested the flagship phone would be made available in a new range of colours.

According to the latest leaks, the red Google Nexus 5 will be officially launched in late February or early March, with the device to land alongside a yellow toned offering.

Although Google has yet to officially comment on any upcoming release of colourful Google Nexus 5 handsets, reports earlier this week suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S rival will be made available in a total of eight colours.

As well as the aforementioned hues, the Google Nexus 5 will also reportedly be launched in orange, green, blue and purple shades.

Apart the change in colour, the new Google Nexus 5 handsets are not expected to differ in any way from the original models.

Boasting a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD display alongside Google’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, the Google Nexus 5 sports a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and the option of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

It does look like a cover. If you look at where the led light is, it looks deeper than it should be in my opinion.regardless,I think color variants will help their sales if they do make something like this. Tbh I would have liked a different color option as well but I already have 32 black from the first day it came out.

Hi bond008, we're not convinced it is a cover from what we've seen.

If this was the Google available case, the black power button would be red too. We will of course keep you posted on future developments.
