Red Google Nexus 5 all but confirmed as press images leak

The heavily rumoured red Google Nexus 5 has taken yet another step closer to reality as officially looking press images leak ahead of launch.

Having been the subject of countless rumours and multiple leaks in recent weeks, the red Google Nexus 5 has been caught on camera yet again, with press renders making an early appearance courtesy of the Twitter-based serial tech tipster @evleaks.

Being particularly blunt with its latest leak, @evleaks’ has accompanied the latest red Google Nexus 5 image with the simple statement: “Google Nexus 5, in red, by LG.”

According to leaks earlier this week, the red Google Nexus 5 will be officially unveiled next week, with retailers suggesting the vibrantly hued handset will be made available for purchase from Tuesday, February 4.

While the red hued handset has been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours, it has been suggested that Google could make its flagship Nexus 5 handset available in up to eight colours with the standard black and white options to be joined by orange, yellow, green, blue and purple offerings.

Aside from its different colour scheme, it is not believed that the new red Google Nexus 5 will differ in any way from the original monochrome options, with a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD display, quad-core processor and the company’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
