The LG Nexus 4 is a hot selling device and if one is able to get their hands on one, they should consider themselves extremely lucky. The price of the 16GB Nexus 4 on eBay was previously listed as Rs 29,990, but the units got sold out from eBay seller Cart2india2010. The handset is now available through other sellers, but at a considerably higher price, which is Rs 35,999.
Those who had managed to procure the Nexus 4 last month through eBay.in should consider themselves lucky as the price has skyrocketed since. There are listings on eBay.in with price as low as Rs 30,000 for the 16GB version, but one would need to bid for it. This in turn could take the price a lot higher. The model with a ‘Buy it Now’ option is for Rs 35,999 and this appears to be the cheapest listing on the popular retail site.
The price seems to have just shot up
The handset had also been listed on online retailer Tradus.in with the 8GB version selling for a steep price of Rs 31,999 and the 16GB model selling for Rs 37,999. Even though these handsets had a higher price than that of eBay, both devices are already listed as sold out. So any hope of procuring it from there has been reduced to nil as of now.
As usual, we would caution you about buying it online as there may be issues with the buying process and as a worst case scenario, there may be the chance of one not even receiving the device at all. However, if you are eager to get your hands on this device no matter what, then it is available on eBay.in, but at a higher price.
If rumours are to be believed, then the LG Nexus 4 is expected to launch in India in January 2013. Along with this handset, LG is expected to introduce the LG Optimus G in India, too, which is the brand’s flagship handset.
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, was also announced alongside the LG Nexus 4.
The Nexus 4 is Google's latest smartphone 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.
