Google has added a third color to its Nexus 5 line. This time, it’s the color apt for Valentine’s Day.
LG Electronics, which worked as Google’s partner in the design and production of the Nexus 5, announced this week that the Google Play Store will start offering the red Nexus phone starting this month.
The Korean electronics company was also Google’s partner in the production of the previous Google phone, the Google Nexus 4.
According to LG’s press release, customers in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and Korea can order the red Nexus 5 on the Google Play Store as soon as the device becomes available any time within this month.
The red variant will also be available in retail stores in selected markets around the world, according to LG.
Google and its partner retailers have been selling the Google Nexus 5 in white and black since the phone’s first launch in October, 2013.
Considered to be a phone that provides a pure experience of Android as intended by Google, the Nexus 5 comes with a quad-core 2.26-GHz Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2.0 GB of RAM, 5-inch 1080p Full HD IPS display, 8-megapixel camera, up to 32 GB of internal storage, and 2,300-mAh LiPo battery (up to about 17 hours of talk time).
The phone runs the latest version of the Google mobile operating system, Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Being a Nexus phone, it will be the very first device to receive any future upgrades to Android.
