Red Nexus 5 coming on February 4th?
A leaked screenshot of Sprint's internal Playbook reveals that the red version of the Nexus 5 will be launched on February 4th. Nothing is official yet, and this is a story that has had many twists and turns including a questionable video that coincidentally leaked just before we saw images of the red Nexus 5, including the retail packaging.

Thanks to the leak, we can say that we are less than a week away from seeing a third color option for buyers of the Nexus 5. Besides Black, white, and now possibly red, we could also see a yellow variant coming soon as well. The red Nexus 5 will be available from the Google Play Store, and the Sprint document was explaining to reps how to activate the device so it can connect with the Sprint network.

Yeah, battery isn't good. I have a white 32gb Nexus 5. Bigger battery, 64gb, and better loudspeakers would be nice. Google shoud have had a loudspeaker at the top and the bottom for a much better landscape stereo experience.

The back panel I could possibly tolerate but the red earpiece grill on the front is a little too distracting for my taste. I don't know why OEMs refrain from producing colored devices with the front & rear panels of the same color. A fully white Nexus 5 would of been quite angelic... The way it stands for most people who own a Moto X, Nexus 5 & a few other devices: It doesn't matter what color the rear is as it's usually obscured via a case of some kind.

Wait... Its red because of KitKat. I get it now. But I'll be really confused if they release a yellow one.
