Upon its release back in October last year, the Google Nexus 5 was available only in white and black color options. But a snazzier more attractive looking red variant was introduced in February this year. As part of outward step towards phasing out the device, the company has now stopped selling the white and red variants of the smartphone.
Despite its large-sized successor having arrived in the markets already, there’s still demand for the Nexus 5 from people who don’t want their smartphones to be phablets. It’s hence that those wishing to buy the handset in the near future should try doing that quickly, for you never know, it might just be discontinued in the months to come.
While the Google Play store is currently listing the black model of the Nexus 5, it is being shown to be out of stock, both in India as well as the US. You can still purchase the device through other shopping channels though. This also means that other online and offline retailers may just have their final batches of the white and red colored handsets to clear off, so good luck finding them if you’re interested in grabbing them for yourself.
A short glance at what specs the Nexus 5 brings to the table:
– Display: 5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradable to Lollipop)
– Processor: 2.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 800
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB or 32GB storage
– Camera: 8MP rear, 1.3MP front
– Battery: 2300mAh
– Dimensions: 69.17mm x 137.84mm x 8.59mm
– Weight: 130gms
The Nexus 5 has been succeeded by the Nexus 6 which features a large 5.9-inch display and comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed on it. Google has chosen not to subsidize this new phone which is why it’s way more expensive than its predecessor.
