A new leak has revealed the arrival of five new color variants of the LG Nexus 5 smartphone. This comes as a bit of a surprise to us as Google has traditionally adopted a more conventional approach to its smartphones by limiting the amount of color options to Black and/or White.
There’s no info on when these variants will break cover, but with the MWC scheduled for next month, we might see an official announcement coming from Google soon. Though as with any premature information, we will hold on to this with a grain of salt until Google or LG makes it official. We can’t rule out photoshop trickery either.
This speaks of the impact had by companies like Nokia which launches its smartphones in numerous colors. This was a trend followed by Apple with the iPhone 5c as well and is inevitably having an impact on Google (assuming this is indeed real). We hope these variants break cover soon as choice is always good for the consumers. But existing owners of the Nexus 5 won’t be particularly excited if Google announces new color variants just a few months after its initial launch.
