Google Seems to Think the Nexus 5 Comes in Yellow

While cruising the official Android website, one of our readers happened upon what looks to be an early slip up, or complete mistake, from Google itself.

When describing the options available when purchasing the Nexus 5 on Google Play, Google states that the device comes in four colors; Black, White, Red, and Yellow. However, as you may all know, the Nexus 5 is not available in a Yellow variant.

Did Google simply slip up, or should we expect a Yellow Nexus 5 to hit Google Play at anytime? 

While the introduction of a new color for the Nexus 5 wouldn’t disappoint us, it seems rather late in the device’s life to be still pumping out new colors. We shall see.

If the Nexus 5 does get announced in a Yellow colorway, would you pick up a Bumblebee model?

    Have you ever had LEMON PIE? ISN’T IT YELLOW?

  • They removed it. 🙁

    Like with yellow cars, no thanks. Only exotic cars can get away with yellow. Same here.
    Now that Sony purple on the other hand.. I like.

    It would be a great marketing scheme to have a yellow Nexus if the next version of Android is code named Lemonhead. I’m convinced that the only reason they haven’t released the code name for the OS yet is they’re still trying to work with whoever owns Lemonhead to get the branding so they can promote it heavily like they did KitKat.

    Heard the nexus 8 will actually appear this fall along with the Nexus 6. Maybe even a Nexus Watch? That would be awesome if they released 3 products at once all with Android L.

    At least thats what I would do If I was in charge.

    Google does this so often. I don’t even consider it a slip up.

    The N5 and 2013 N7 are so damn good in their present form they could just get a teeny spec bump and stay conpetitive for another year. Give the N7 a Snapdragon 800 and a slightly larger battery and (ideally) a 64GB storage variant. Give the N5 a beefier battery and a 64GB option as well as possibly a better camera. Same FF all around to maintian case and accessory compatibility. Bingo! Instant 2014 Nexus line refresh line on the chweap to tide things over til the first wave of hideously overpriced Silver devices arrive in 2015.

      I agree I have the Nexus 5 & N7 and both devices are amazing. Nexus 5 is such an improvement over N4 just by the form factor alone.

    Guess we will be seeing yellow soon

  • why.did.i.buy.that

    Whoever posted that for android was most likely thinking since the cases come in those colors so did the phone, Nothing to look into.

  • Patrick Smithopolis

    I was hoping for a royal blue Nexus.

    • Ryan O’Neill

      Now that I would buy.

      Or a Tron edition, with electric blue accents. But that’s what the Moto X is for.

  • Look on the lower left hand side. Also, S5 with on screen buttons? LOL

  • I’d buy a yellow phone. Its different and I’m weird like that. In other news BRING ON THE NEXUS PHABLETS FOR CHRIST SAKE!!!

  • Cael

    Wasn’t yellow rumored along with red before? If there isn’t going to be a Nexus 6, releasing a new color is a understandable option.

  • Boblank84

    guessing a mistake based on those being the colors of their cases for the nexus 5

  • Zander

    Yellow is a weird color for a phone.. They should have done green or blue.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      hmmm blue would be nice

    • hkklife

      Not for Nokia!
