The bright red Nexus 5 has been launched on the Google Play Store today, confirming earlier rumors and leaks which said that the new color would be released today, Febuary 4 to join the existing Nexus 5 lineup. The Nexus 5 on the Google Play Store now has three colors, black, white and red. It's not clear currently if Google plans to release additional colors, but since there is a yellow and blue bumper case perhaps Google may be intending to have a staggered release of new Nexus 5 colors. There's no difference between the red Nexus 5 and the black and white in anything except color. The red Nexus 5 is availibile in both 16GB and 32GB options at the price of $349 and $399 respectively.
The bright red Nexus 5 certainly doesn't suit everyone's tastes, CNET described it as "firey". Gizmodo Australia has taken a liking to the bright red Nexus 5 and have predicted that it would sell out faster in Australia than even the black Nexus 5 which is apparently out of stock over there. Personally we prefer the white Nexus 5, by far its the most naturally attractive and distinguishable, particularly when combined with a clear bumper case. The black Nexus 5 isn't too bad either, though perhaps a little indistinguishable compare to all the other black squares out there.
The bright red Nexus 5 is indistinguishable in terms of specs. The press release we got from Google suggests that the bright red Nexus 5 is a themed launch targeted for Valentine's Day. Maybe we can get a green Nexus 5 for St. Patrick's Day.
|Get your new red Nexus 5 in time for Valentine's Day. Order on Google Play by February 7th.|
