The Nexus 5 sporting a timely red exterior is now available on Google Play. First leaked all of two weeks ago, the device has been spotted/unboxed in warehouses and through internal Sprint documents, leaving little to our imagination. The Sprint leak gave us an availability date of February 4, which just so happens to be today. Way to be timely, Google.
The red variant is identical in terms of specs to the black and white “panda” models. The only difference here, is that bright red coloring that Google has been using on Nexus accessories for some time.
