Red Nexus 5 said to launch February 4th

From unlikely rumor to solid reality, it looks like we definitely are going to see this red Nexus 5 at some point in the very near future. New leaks have suggested that the alternative color option is set to launch in the Google Play Store beginning February 4th. Sprint is also expected to offer the device to their customers on-contract, though T-Mobile’s status is still up in the air.

We reckon it’d be the same Nexus 5 folks are currently enjoying right now, except this one “pops” a whole lot more. It’ll come donned with a 5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and more. You likely won’t have to pay a premium over the original $350 to $400 price tag, so get your wallets in shape and set the calendar for what could turn out to be an interesting Tuesday morning.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Probably made for the valentine’s day?

    1. I don’t know if it was made for Valentine’s day, but it sure would make an excellent Valentine’s day gift!

  2. Not sure if they think that most go caseless. You can buy the black or white and buy a color case. Seems like a waste of production. I like it without a case but if it drops its not good.

    1. Only rock naked phones. Casing it up detracts from the great in-hand feel that was designed by engineers. If I buy a nice phone, I’m not going to slap a ridiculously huge otter box on there that makes it look like a protective bumper so your child can play with it. Just be careful, and a screen protector is all you should need. Then again, people are so unaware of anything that’s happening around them, including their phones location…

      1. Women need the ridiculous cases and screen protectors for their phones. Hand bags are an evil torture chamber for phones…
        For me, naked smartphone is the only way. Even screen protectors ruin the experience.

        1. I’ve actually had some pretty good ones. The hard plastic screen protectors feel pretty convincing. I guess they’re now making actual glass screen protectors too.

  3. They should have had it ready, shipping and in peoples’ hands by today/tomorrow.

    1. Nexus 5 isn’t sold in China, but if it were, and in red, I think it would do very well.

      1. Ah,but there’s still plenty of Chinese elsewhere that it is sold.

  4. Reminds me of a Nokia Lumia color.

    1. Oh so Nokia was the first with a red phone? Hmmm..red was created by Nokia?

  5. i could see this as a verizon bound phone. now if only verizon would support it and work with google.

  6. Darn thing would look good on Verizon. But wait…

  7. Nexus 5, really is it coming?
