Red Nexus 5 now available

Following a brief period of leaks that predicted something like this would happen, Google has now started selling a red version of the LG-made Nexus 5 smartphone via its Play Store.

The red Nexus 5 is expected to become available in the regional Play Stores in Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and Korea this month. “Wider availability” across Europe is expected to happen towards the end of February.

As you’d expect, the new paint job is the only thing that’s really differentiating the red Nexus 5 from the black model. Nothing has changed in terms of specs, so on the inside it’s the same handset that launched at the end of October 2013.

The LG Nexus 5, red or not, comes with a 4.95-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a 1.3 MP front camera, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, wireless charging, and a 2,300 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Its dimensions are 137.84×69.17×8.59 mm, and it weighs 130 grams.

The pricing has stayed intact as well – expect to pay $349 for the version with 16 GB of storage, and $399 if you need double that amount of space.
