In a very surprising move, Google today revealed that it is bringing the newly announced Nexus 5 smartphone to India soon. The exact release date is unclear but we hope to hear something soon.
Google Nexus 5 has already been listed on the Indian Play Store with a ‘coming soon’ tag.
“We partnered with LG to develop Nexus 5 — the slimmest and fastest Nexus phone ever made. Its design is simple and refined to showcase the 5” Full HD display. Nexus 5 also keeps you connected at blazing speeds with 4G/LTE and ultra fast wifi,” Google noted in a blog post.
To remind you, Google Nexus is powered by 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor comes with 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and wireless charging support.
It is the first time that Google has revealed India release plans of any Nexus device with the global announcement.
Google Nexus 16GB version: INR 28,999, 32GB version: INR 32,999. The phone will sold in Black and White colour options. The pricing seems to be quite decent given the fact that Nexus 5 costs around INR 25K in US itself after the local taxes and shipping.
