Remember the days when consumers were treated with utmost negligence by Google and made to wait a long while to get their hands on Nexus devices (Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 comes to mind)? Well, officially those days are gone. Google has officially price listed the Nexus 5 smartphone for Indian users on its Indian Google Play Store. The latest powerful Nexus smartphone was officially launched by Google and LG earlier this year and now much to our surprise the device has made its way to the Indian listing.

Other than that, online retailers like Flipkart have also started listing the product, however those are slightly higher than the Google pricing and the delivery timeframe goes as high as 2 weeks. The listing states ‘Coming Soon’ like the one we first saw with the Nexus 7 2013 tablet but all this illustrates the importance of Indian market to Google and its vendors.

Priced at Rs 28,999 for 16 GB and Rs 32,999 for 32 GB variants; the Nexus 5 is an improvement on the Nexus 4 smartphone and competes with the flagship models of varied brands. Built by LG, the Nexus 5 sports a 5 inch full HD display packed with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. The lightweight device is loaded with a 2300 mAh battery and fitted with a 13 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front shooter for video calling and selfies.

The phone’s powerful credentials are validated by Snapdragon 800 CPU (also running on LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z1 among others) and 2 GB RAM along with it. Like other Nexus devices, this smartphone comes with internal storage space only and no microSD card slot.

If the Nexus 5 is launched at its mentioned pricing, the stakes for high-end smartphone will surely belong to Google and LG. You can check out the device over here
