Red Nexus 5 boxed

While the Nexus 5 probably isn’t going to be offered in 6 new colors anytime soon, it does appear as if LG could soon start offering the device in a new red color. According to these pics taken from inside an LG warehouse in the UK (we saw the Nexus 5 break its cover in a similar leak back before it was made official), the red Nexus 5 could be real, and shipping out to wherever fine Nexuses are sold.

This actually marks the second time we’ve seen the alleged red Nexus leak online, the first being a few days ago (where a yellow model is also said to be in the works).

Red Nexus 5 front back

In the pictures we can see the red version packaged up along with hundreds of others, then even removed from its box to give us a closer look. Similar to the white version, it appears that LG could be going with a red earpiece to match the back. This should help the device match nicely with the bright red TPU case already offered on Google Play.

Because Twitter compresses their images so dang much, it’s tough to make out the legitimacy of these images with all the artifacting. Anyone suddenly considering a Nexus 5 in race red?
