The Canadian carriers and retalers have made a habbit out of bringing new products (at least when it comes to smartphones) later than the ones in the US, but it’s better late then never.
As you probably know, the folks at Google introduced a red Nexus 5 model. You are reading this from Canada and you were planning to get your hands on the red Nexus 5, you would be glad to hear that the stock-Android powered smartphone is now available in your country via Telus.
The aforementioned Canadian carrier now has the red Nexus 5 in their portfolio and, if you agree to sign a two-year contract with them, the smartphone will be yours for free. If signing contracts with the carriers is not your thing, than you can grab the SIM-free red Nexus 5 at a price of C$500.
Telus is also allowing the customers to trade in their old phones and receive up to C$250 off the price of the new Nexus 5.
Aside of the color, the red Nexus 5 has the same technical specifications as its black and white brothers. The handset boasts about a 5.0-inch True HD IPS+ display with 1080 x 1920 resolution, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of native storage, 8 MP rear-facing camera with OIS and HDR+, 2,300 mAh battery, WiFi, LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB 2.0.
Since it’s a member of the Nexus tribe, the Nexus 5 runs the latest Android version, namely KitKat 4.4.2, and one of it’s main advantages over the competition is that it’s always in the first wave of devices when it comes to receiving firmware updates.
