Google releases new bright red Nexus 5: The perfect Valentine's Day gift?

If you're looking for a slightly nerdy, yet romantic and awesome Valentine's Day gift for your tech-loving special someone, we've got just the thing.

A brand new smartphone!

But for the holiday of love, your everyday run-of-the-mill smartphone just won't do. Luckily, you can wow your loved one this year with something a little snazzier – a bright red Nexus 5.

The new red model hit Google Play this week, joining its black and white counterparts. Just like its less colourful siblings, the red model comes in 16GB and 34GB flavours, priced at £299 and £339, respectively.

The new red version has the same specs as the black and white variants, just with a new coat of paint. The bright red hue covers the back and sides of the phone, as well as the earpiece.

The Nexus 5, first unveiled in October, sports a 4.95in, 1,920 x 1,080 full HD IPS Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display with 445 pixels per inch. It runs a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip, 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

The handset, which is manufactured by LG, also includes a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and 8-megapixel rear shooter with optical image stabilisation.

Head over to Google Play to order your bright red Nexus 5 now. It's currently listed as in stock, and ships in one to two business days.
