As the month flagged off, Google and LG pulled the wraps off the next-generation Nexus device dubbed Nexus 5. Without much ado, Google had announced that the device will be made available in India soon priced at Rs 28,999 (16GB variant) and Rs 32,999 (32GB model). However, the search giant hasn’t confirmed the availability date yet.
Those who can’t wait any longer can head towards iBhejo.com that is selling the 16GB Nexus 5 for a tad higher Rs 31, 807. Currently, the site is also offering additional 10 percent Diwali discount on all products being sold from the USA. As the device is being sourced from the US, estimated delivery time is 7-15 business days, however, there's no word on how many phones are in stock. Considering that Nexus 5 is running out of stock quickly in the US, the delivery time will most likely increase significantly in the coming weeks.
