The latest buzz in the smart phone world, the Nexus 5 made by LG of South Korea is to be released in India on Monday, 25th November, 2013.
Sadly only the 16GB version will be available as of now for the Indians. Though the Google Play list the price of the 16GB Black Nexus 5 at Rs.28,999.00 it will be sold in the physical shops and online portals for Rs.29990.00. You can buy the 16GB Nexus 5 in LG Shoppes or LG branded stores starting Monday and it will be available elsewhere after 2 to 3 days. The Google Play sale will also go live on Monday but the delivery will be a big issue.
The Google Nexus 5 manufactured by LG is the most innovative smart phone to be launched in recent times after the Moto X. The Nexus 5 boasts of the Googles latest operating system, the Android 4.4 KITKAT aboard it. Specwise it is a masterpiece for the price announced by Google. The Nexus 5 boasts of a 4.95 inch full HD display with LG patented in-cell touch technology. The Nexus 5 will run on a quad core Snapdragon 800 processor clocking a speed of 2.3GHz and runs on 2GB of RAM.
For creativity it comes with a 8MP rear camera with OIS, LED Flash, Auto Focus and the front shoot is a 1.3MP affair. For connectivity the Nexus 5 has all the necessary options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and expansion slot for MicroSD card. The Nexus 5 will come in 16 and 32GB versions with 16GB available as of now.
For my money, Google Nexus 5 will change the price equation in the mobile market. Its very competitive pricing and nice specs will lead to a churning among the major players like Samsung, Apple, Sony and HTC. As of today, the high end smart phones cost anywhere between Rs.35000.00 and above. With Google Nexus 5 entering the fray at sub Rs.30000.00 and Motorola announcing plans to launch Moto g in India soon, the Indian buyer may indeed have a very happy ending to the otherwise very dull year.
