Yellow could be the next color for the Nexus 5

Yellow could be the next color for the Nexus 5
Are you a fan of the color yellow? How about when the yellow is applied to the Nexus 5?  According to an official Google web site, the phone is available in "black, white, red and yellow," which means that we could see this new color option added for the stock Android phone as soon as today. In fact, with this being the last day of Google I/O, we wouldn't be surprised if the news is announced some time this afternoon.

The Nexus 5 was named by us as one of the best smartphones of 2013. Released last October, the handset remains relevant and fresh today, and can even match up with the new flagships that are currently rolling off assembly lines at Samsung, HTC and LG. The phone is presently running Android 4.4.4, although the last update was send out as a security fix.

Keep checking in through out the day for the latest from Google I/O, and if yellow is the next black, we will pass the news on to you immediately.

Thanks for the tip!

This is a little weird to me, why would they release a new color of it when usually a new version of the Nexus phone gets released in October? Unless the rumors were true with LG not making the next version, and Google dumping the line in favor of Android Silver program?

LG not making the Nexus isn't a rumor, it was confirmed by an LG executive. Android Silver phones are said to be released next year, which seems like an eternity.

Don't forget project Ara will out in the beginning of 2015 or next year. That will be the ultimate Nexus Android device. When you can change almost every aspect of the device. You can't get much better then that.

Not really. Apple executives will tell you there is no iPhone 6, that's a bogus reply... the latest rumors show that LG is in fact making a 5.5. Nexus 6.

When you have the most reliable source of leaks saying there will be no Nexus, an LG executive confirming that they will not be making one, and a general consensus on almost all reliable tech sites that a project called Android Silver replacing the Nexus program, you are left with very little room for doubt.
