This could either be the biggest hoax in the history of smartphone rumors or it could be just a simple expansion of color options from a popular smartphone— either way, the red Nexus 5 rumors are going to keep coming.
@evleaks just tweeted out a press render of a red Nexus 5— it looks pretty legit, but there are also some pretty legit Photoshop experts out there as well. The new color may be available on Google Play on Feb. 4 (next week), so we’ll just have to wait and see for confirmation.

Earlier this month, Samsung said that they would unveil different color options for the Galaxy Note 3 based on regional market preferences. In South Korea, one market preference color seems to be red. In addition to Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink, customers in South Korea will now be able to purchase the Galaxy Note 3 in “Merlot Red,” which you can see above.
Samsung says that the color will appeal to both men and women agross all ages, and will come with a matching S Pen and leather back, just like the other color options.

Taiwanese carrier FarEasTone Telecommunications has inadvertently revealed HTC is preparing to launch a red version of the HTC One Max. The new color will join silver in the stable of versions that are currently available. With the HTC One, originally launched in silver and black, HTC eventually released red and blue versions. HTC could be on the same path with the HTC One Max, although it may be a little early to predict such an action since the new red version is limited to the Taiwanese market for now.
While the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has quite a few different color variations, the Note 3 was launched primarily in just black and white (with a hard-to-find pink variant out there as well). In January however, Samsung’s flagship phablet will be available in red and White Gold, according to SamMobile’s insider sources. The red version will launch in the first week of January, while the White Gold version will follow two weeks later.
Availability will be worldwide, but some retailers and carriers might get an exclusive claim on the new colors for a particular period of time. If you’re looking for a Note 3 for the holidays, just remember that you might want to wait a few weeks and grab a snazzy red or White Gold version instead of black or white.
If you’ve really got your heart set on a Red HTC One Mini you’re in luck. The folks over at Phones 4U in the UK, who already have a red HTC One, have just announced they’ll be offering the flashy mini variant starting in November. The offer, for now, is exclusive for Phones 4U customers only so you’ll just have to be patient if they’re not your carrier. However, if flashy colors aren’t your thing, you can pick up the One Mini in silver and black over at EE, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone for free on contract at just £26/mo ($41.94/mo).
If you’d like to pick up a SIM free device you’ll be looking in the price range of around £389.95 ($629.07). If you’re feeling froggy and want to jump on the Red One Mini, check out the link below to Phones 4U and don’t forget to check out the press release for the more granular details.
Yesterday, @evleaks revealed a press render of Sprint’s HTC One in red— this news comes at a time where carriers are trying to distance their own variants of some devices from other carriers’, in hopes of picking up an increase of sales.
Around the announcement of the HTC One, we saw a red variant float around as a color option. HTC pretty quickly dismissed it and told everyone it doesn’t exist, but it looks like it’s shown up on a UK website, HandTec, again. While the image is still pretty blurry, it’s still a fairly detailed, clean render, so I definitely think HTC plans on putting this out at some point in the future. Hit the link below to check out the listing for yourself, but don’t try to buy one. It’s shown up as out of stock since the listing was created, unfortunately.
Sony has officially added the Sony Xperia ZL to their U.S. web site with a button customers can use to sign up to be notified when the smartphone is available for ordering. No pricing or projected date of availability was provided. Sources indicate the phone will be sim-free and will have LTE antennas available for several bands. The Sony web site lists three colors for the device – red, black and white. The inclusion of the red variant is a nice surprise after that color was shown at an event for South East Asian markets.
