Why do you say that? Even the bar code is showing the red color label. Seems pretty legit.

Overall it's a bad photoshop. It's probably real yeah, but these bad quality pictures are not legit. Even the writer of article from the OP here states all the barcodes and imeis are the same and match up to a different phone. The phone has a black lense on the boxes but yet the actual device has a red camera lense.

And serial number begins with 401K. Now we have only 310, 311 and 312K. So I think may be red one have new hardware fixes and revision.

Why do you assume LG would have blacked out the Nexus word? Taking for example, the white N5, white Nexus wording ; the black N5, black Nexus wording. I'm positive they would have carried out the same pattern over to the red N5.
Otherwise, it does look like a very bad photoshop.

I'll be pretty pissed it comes out in different colors. I would totally gone for a Patriots blue. Even if they didn't make it to the Superbowl

If it indeed does come out in red or other colors, replacement parts could be bought and just swapped.
