Red Nexus 5 arrives on Google Play at last
I am quite sure that many of us have heard of the age old proverb, that “good things come to those who wait”. Those who happen to celebrate the Lunar New Year will know that red is an auspicious color, so you would see plenty of red clothes being worn, not to mention at some homes, red cloth that adorns the doorpost to usher in luck, prosperity and good fortune for the rest of the coming year. Having said that, I am quite sure that the red Nexus 5 that has finally arrived on Google Play has nothing to do with the Lunar New Year, but rather, the time is just ripe for it to happen. The first red Nexus 5 device is now available on Google Play, and another milestone is achieved – this is the first Google phone that will arrive in a trio of different colors – and they are, red, white and black.
First launched in October last year in a partnership between LG and Google, the Nexus 5 has picked up its fair share of praise and bouquets, coming across as a stylish, high-performance Google phone. The Nexus 5 was (and still is) powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, where it is accompanied by a stunning 5-inch Full HD IPS display with Android 4.4, KitKat, the latest version of the Android OS, as the mobile operating system of choice..
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, shared, “The Nexus line has always been about doing things differently and consumers who share this philosophy have been our most loyal fans. We’re carrying this thinking over to the red Nexus 5, which we think will catch the eye of consumers who want to make an even bolder statement.”
If you are interested in picking up the red Nexus 5 for yourself, you can do so on Google Play from this month in the U.S.,Canada, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Korea, while wider availability will happen across Europe before February is over.
