A version of the Nexus 5 has leaked in red, if pictures from Twitter user @artyomstar are to be believed.

The images show multiple boxes and the red handset itself, carrying the same look as the Nexus 5 we've come to know over the last few months, except with a neon red, Lumia-esque colour scheme.

Monday's leaked images follow an image from Vietnamese site Vietnamnet last week, which also mentioned a yellow version that hasn't been seen yet.

The red variant of the Nexus 5 is said to launch in February or March, though Google hasn't provided official confirmation.
