Earlier we had reported that the Nexus 5 could starting getting new color options in the future, and thanks to a leaked photo, a red Nexus 5 was caught in the wild. Well for those of you who are still a bit skeptical on whether a red Nexus 5 is a possibility, new photos have made their way online in which we can see boxes of red Nexus 5 handsets sitting in a warehouse, courtesy of @artyomstar. As far as we’re concerned, the images do look real, although admittedly it will not be too hard of a job to photoshop them to make them look red to begin with. No word on when the new color options for the Nexus 5 will be made available to the public, but presumably it will be soon.
As far as pricing is concerned, we expect that it will not cost more than the regular Nexus handsets since the color options are just a new coat of paint, versus more complicated finishes like the wooden Moto X. The hardware under the hood is also expected to remain the same as the regular Nexus 5. Either way we will be keeping our eyes peeled for more information regarding the more colorful Nexus 5’s availability, so be sure to check back with us at a later date for the details! In the meantime what color options are you planning to get?
