Last week a batch of leaked photos showed the Nexus 5 in a handful of new color options. The pictures were quickly discounted as fakes, but today a series of new photos have us thinking a red version of Google’s 5-inch smartphone may actually launch in the near future.
The new photos show the alleged red Nexus 5 in its official packaging from the front and back, while a third picture suggests our tipster had access to entire crate of new smartphones. The latest leak comes from previously-unknown Twitter user @artyomstar, who didn’t waste any time spreading the photos online.
While we can’t confirm these are real, we took a long hard look at the latest photos before deciding it was even worth sharing them here on the site. We’re pretty sure this isn’t another Photoshop job, though we’re not 100 percent sure these aren’t fakes either. Hopefully Google will make an official announcement in the near future, but it’s more likely a red version of the Nexus 5 will simply show up on Google Play with no warning at all.
