There’s a video making the rounds the evening. In the vidjya, someone in their parent’s dank, dark basement is browsing the Nexus 5’s familiar listing on Google Play, clicking through 6 new color options for the device: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

As we all know, currently, the only options available to anyone purchasing the Nexus 5 are either black or white. So does this mean we’ll soon see new Nexus 5 color options arrive in the Play Store? Not likely. Upon closer inspection we noticed that, aside from how janky the colors look on the web page, a load screen (along with URL change) always accompanies a color change on Google Play. Go ahead and try it for yourself. Now come back to this video. See what we mean?

Now this doesn’t mean we wouldn’t do backflips if it came to pass, just don’t go getting your hopes up.
