Red Nexus 5 goes official; in Play Store now

Last Thursday, the rumors and leaks of a new red version of the Nexus 5 started making the shift from this nebulous sort of “it’s out there somewhere” status and started looking to specific launch plans. A leak from Sprint suggested that the carrier was gearing-up to introduce the new Nexus 5 today, February 4. Not to disappoint us, Google has just followed-through by making the red Nexus 5 official, joining the existing black and white variants on Google Play.

Like the other Nexus 5 models, the red edition is available in both 16GB and 32GB storage capacities, selling for the same $350 and $400 prices with which we’re familiar.

While sales are active at Google Play (with the phone shipping in one to two days), what we haven’t seen is the red Nexus 5 pop up with any carriers yet – and that includes Sprint. There’s still a chance that the phone may surface at one or more of those a little later on today, but really it’s the Google Play availability we’re most interested in; the carriers can wait.

With his guy now official, we wonder if any additional Nexus 5 color options are in the works. While we haven’t seen any convincing evidence just yet, considering how quickly the red Nexus 5 descended upon us, we wouldn’t put it past there being another lurking in the wings.
