It appears that the Nexus 4 will officially make its way to India in January 2013, according to a report by IBNLive. And LG fans would be thrilled to hear that sources have informed the online publication that the brand will also be bringing the Optimus G to India. The sources have not provided them with any information on the pricing of these handsets.
We contacted LG regarding the same and they did not provide us any information about either handset. They said that they currently had nothing to share.
If you're eager to get your hands on this smartphone, it is already listed on eBay.in, and one can buy the 8 GB variant for Rs 25,990 as opposed to the previous price of Rs 23,490. The 16 GB version has also received a price change on eBay.in and is now up for grabs at a price of Rs 29,990, contrary to the Rs 27,490 price it was initially listed at.
May come to India in January

Google had announced the latest devices in its Nexus line-up in late October, along with a new flavour of Android - version 4.2. The new version is still named Jelly Bean. A revised version of the Nexus 7 tablet, a new 10-inch tablet called the Nexus 10, and Nexus 4, LG's offering with the Nexus branding, were announced.
The Nexus 4 is Google's latest smartphone, and has been developed together with LG. It has a quad-core processor, runs on android 4.2, has a crisp 4.7-inch (320 ppi) display, and boasts of wireless charging. The company has reinvented the photo experience with Photo Sphere, which lets you capture shots up, down, and in every direction to create 360-degree experiences that you can share on Google+. You can also add your Photo Sphere to Google Maps for the world to see.
Android 4.2 bring some great goodies, including Gesture Typing, which lets you glide your finger over the letters you want to type on the keyboard—thus adding the functionality of the Swype keyboard into the stock Android keyboard. Android 4.2 also adds support for wireless displays, so you can wirelessly watch movies, YouTube videos, and play games right on a Miracast-compatible HDTV.
The LG Optimus G has specifications that are similar to that of the Nexus 4, except for the addition of an LTE antenna and a microSD slot. However, it runs on Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich as opposed to the Nexus 4, which runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
As of now we would have to wait and see if and when LG officially takes the wraps off these handsets in India.
