You know that saying "When it rains, it pours?" That definitely applies to the red Nexus 5, which materialized out of nowhere this week and has already appeared in a couple of leaks at this point. Today we've got another to add to the list.

An official-looking press image of red Nexus 5 has been shared by @evleaks, giving us a clear look at the crimson KitKat device. As expected, it looks like a white Nexus 5, but with red paint instead of white. That includes a red back that wraps around to the sides of the device as well as a red earpiece around front.

After getting a look at the red Nexus 5 in some "in the wild" photos that weren't exactly the highest quality snaps that we've ever seen, it's nice to get a clear peek at this N5 in the form of a press image. Thankfully it may not be long before we get an even better view of the phone as it's resting in our hands, because the rumor mill has suggested that the red Nexus 5 could be making its way into the Google Play Store as soon as Feb. 4. Only a few more days, friends.
