The Nexus 5 has apparently been spied in red, leading a bit of credibility to rumors that Google is plotting a range of new hues for the flagship phone.

That said, CNET UK reported Thursday on leaked images of a Google Play listing for the Nexus 5, showing the phone in black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
