Red Nexus 5 To Go On Sale February 4 [Rumor]


Earlier today, a leaked image appeared online revealing that Google is expecting to launch its flagship smartphone anodized in red on Tuesday, February 4. The handset will be available directly from the Play Store and is believed to be priced from $120 upfront on a two year contract, or $350 with no contract at all.

In terms of specifications, the red Nexus 5 will pack exactly the same internals as the black and white colorways, sporting a 4.9-inch True HD IPS+ capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.3GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2,300 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery.

The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat straight out of the box, but is upgradable to the latest build of 4.4.2 via a simple over-the-air update, which you are prompted to download and install the first time you power up the device.
