The Nexus 5 is the first Google phone to be offered in three colors - red, white and black.
The announcement does not come as a surprise as the red Nexus 5 was leaked in several photos last week. The new color is targeted at consumers who want something different.
"The Nexus line has always been about doing things differently and consumers who share this philosophy have been among our most loyal fans," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "We're carrying this thinking over to the red Nexus 5, which we think will catch the eye of consumers who want to make an even bolder statement."
The red Nexus 5 will be available at the Google Play Store starting this month in the U.S, Canada, U.K, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Korea with wider availability across Europe by the end of the month. It is sold at the same price as the black and white models: US$349 (16GB) and US$399 (32GB).
As a quick recap, the Nexus 5 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.26GHz processor, 2GB RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat. It has a 4.95-inch Full-HD display and sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. To check out where the Nexus 5 stand among the Android flagship devices, do read our review.
