Red Nexus 5

If you're dying for a red Nexus 5, it looks like they're well on their way. We (and just about everyone else) just got pinged by @artyomstar on Twitter, who offered up a couple pics. Note the colors listed on the boxes as well.

The follows up another one that leaked last week, though that image was pretty rough.

npco543 says:

That is one bright shade of red. Personally, I'd feel a little conspicuous with something like that. I guess I'm just not the flashy type.

I completely agree.

You're in denial. Red is the one color that universally attracts any human. #accept

npco543 says:

Clearly you are incorrect, as I assure you, I don't care for the color red.

It might illicit a reaction, but that in itself doesn't determine the nature of the reaction - positive or negative.

Viper says:

What about blind people? Does it attract them too? Or even color blind people?

You know what, the colour is so attractive that it probably does! Don't be surprised when you see one of them with this phone next time your out!

Red looks pretty great to me. Deciding between the N5 or the X with Ebonized wood and red accents. Hmmm

Thats it I am changing to Apple.

I hope someone gets this joke.


I think I got it, lol.

I read the head line as Nexus 5s, as in model 5s. Walking back from the cliff slow.

Joet says:

I did the exact same thing.

Jaysus says:

So did I ;)

ryaninc says:

I read it as 5S, too. Following the mobile industry so closely has ruined us.

mvsmith says:

I read it the same. Google better not EVER use some bs 5s name.

Apple lawyers would probably have an orgasm if google did that.

But it would end when Google brings up how similar iOS7 is to Android. ;)

lulwat? How do you figure?

Darth Spock says:

Someone named Eldar Murtazin tweeted that the Nexus line will be replaced by the Play Edition devices, which will also be rebranded, by 2015. A few other blogs took this to mean that the 2013 Nexus 5 is the last Nexus, which makes the assumption that Google will not do anything during 2014 - during which at least two tablets and another phone would normally be expected.

On Twitter, Eldar reclarified that 2-3 devices will be announced this year, after that he expects this change. No sources have been named an no one else has run with this story except to quote this tweet.

Eldar Murtazin is EIC of a Russian publication called mobile-review.

bleached says:

Sundar already said this isn't true.

Just good editing here. Not real

I think you may be wrong on this one.

Alex Zapata says:

I hope this whole colors phenomenon becomes a trend with other manufacturers.

chapaj says:

It's inconsistent with the way white was shown on the box. The side view is missing.

Posted via Android Central App

hmmm says:

I want to see the sides. If I had to guess I would say they just stuck a red cover on the back of a black nexus but we'll see. If that is the case you could easily buy a replacement red cover for $25 on ebay in a couple weeks.

Edit - Nevermind, I see it does look red. Stupid twitter is blocked at work so I only saw the first box shot....

Spence1115 says:

Why is the camera dot at the top of the front of the phone red?

Posted via Android Central App

hmmm says:

That's the speaker grill. It is round on the nexus 5. The camera is near the left side of the phone.

Spence1115 says:

OK, so the round speaker grill on the front of the phone, why is it red? Its not white on the white version, so why is it white here?

EDIT: My bad, it IS white on the white version. So maybe...

Weird that they would use red edge color too instead of black like in the white models. I wonder if its the same soft touch as the black models.

DynaMike says:

I was hoping this would be a Verizon exclusive but hahaha no of course not.

NexusKoolaid says:

If the picture is indeed legit, isn't it a little careless to be publishing the complete IMEI's for three phones?

MarkSeven says:

Had to get on the app to see the other pictures (Twitter is blocked at work).. Surprised they used red edges too. Wish I could see this phone in person. The red looks a little too bright, as I said before.

Call me crazy, I'm still not convinced. Maybe its just that I don't see how they go from subtle black and white versions to a super bold red. Of course it matches the accessories... I don't know. Its pretty out there, y'know?

Posted via Android Central App

Scratch that. I just saw an extra handful of photos on G+ and they do look pretty legit. It'd be painstaking to Photoshop that well from all the angles of those photos. Welp...

A real photo of non-chinese-made nexus5 anyone?..

hmmm says:

How did they choose the color? Did they figure it would annoy Verizon, lol :)

this will be my next phone

Notus says:

Verizon perhaps? Lol one can dream.

The package says rgb

Is this binting at red green and blue variants?

Spence1115 says:

It says GBR. Which usually means Great Britain, which might be the destination of these ones.

Spence1115 says:

Android Police say that the IMEI numbers are all connected to an old Samsung feature phone. I'm calling bullshit on this.

SteveDoes says:

5s better be a typo or I'm going to go ape shit.

judasmachine says:

Better title for article: Red 5, standing bye.

Any chance one of these red models will soon grace the F.C.C. page sporting Verizon frequency support?

bayou bandit says:

For me, it's all about the texture. If this red N5 has the rubbery feel of the black, and not the slick feel of the white... I'll definitely get it. Though, I may wait a couple weeks, just to see if any other colors come out. I'd like to see it in both yellow and blue as well.

This is pretty sick! However, nothing beats the blackberry 10 OS and that physical keyboard on the Q10!

I hate when they never take more than one picture. I want to see the front and sides of it. I don't think it's legit
