From rumor to reality, the red Nexus 5 is now available in the Google Play Store. Given that it’s just a color variant, the red Nexus 5 is the same price, starting at $349 for the 16GB version and $399 for the 32GB version.
With previous Nexus handsets, the world had to wait quite a bit to see a white color variant, but the Nexus 5 became available in both black and white out of the gate. Now that a red version of the popular handset is available to the masses, we can only wonder if we can see more colors on the way. I’ll say it a million times — I want an orange phone.
If you’re looking for a new phone with a bright pop of color, then the red Nexus 5 may be right up your alley! Grab it here!
