Soon after Google started selling Nexus 5 in India, LG has also launched the smartphone in the open market. The phone can now be purchased from LG stores and other major mobile retailers for INR 29,999 (16GB) and INR 33,999 (32GB).
“LG is proud to partner with Google again to develop the fastest, most powerful Nexus phone ever. Nexus 5 offers the ultimate functionality in a modern design and is a testament to the level of innovation that can be generated when two great companies come together for a second act,” said Soon Kwon, MD LG India.
As you can see the Nexus 5 pricing from LG is INR 1K more than Google Play price, which according to company is because of the distribution costs, store management and other expenses that come with selling phones in brick and mortar shops.
