There was a time when offering smartphones with monochromatic colour options (white and black) was more than enough but these days the colour palette is seeing additions with every consequent launch. Google has joined the colour brigade and has launched a red variant of the Nexus 5. The same has become available on the India Play store and the same is in stock as well. The website states that the device will leave warehouse in 1-2 business days. The 16GB red Nexus 5 is available for Rs 28,999 and the 32GB red Nexus 5 (Quick Review) is on sale for Rs 32,999.
Google is not charging a premium for the red variant which looks quite good. Like the white variant, you get a red earpiece up front and the device gets a red rear. The smartphone will be available in on Google Play stores of other countries as well right away and the list includes United States, Canada, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. The European nations will get the same towards the end of February.
Coming to what the Nexus 5 has on offer, the smartphone comes shod with a 5 inch full HD screen (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch. It has a 2.3 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood which pairs up with a 2GB RAM to make sure that you get a pretty smooth experience while multi-tasking. The Nexus devices have always been known for their raw performance on offer and the Nexus 5 has that on offer.
It runs on the latest version of Android which is 4.4.2 KitKat and the same will get updates from Google for 18 months as well. It has a 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 1.3MP camera up front for taking care of the imaging department. It comes with 16GB and 32GB memory options and has no expandable storage on offer. Its battery is something that might just let you down. It is a 2,300 mAh unit and the same does not last even a day will moderate to heavy usage. But on the flipside, this is one aspect you can take care of courtesy of the portable chargers that are on sale. So what do you think about the Nexus 5 in red colour?
