Nexus 4 now on pre-order for INR 25,990, expected to ship in fourth week of May

Update (May 15, 15:30): Flipkart has updated its Nexus 4 listing and is now taking the pre-orders for the phone. The retailer has also confirmed on Twitter that it is the official release of the phone and they are the exclusive online seller.

The official launched is expected in “May fourth-week”, which is mentioned as the expected release date of the phone on Flipkart listing. Looks like, we won’t have to wait for long.


Nexus 4 Flipkart

It is important to note here that the INR 25,990 is the price-tag for 16GB version and there is no 8GB version on pre-order or sale in the country.

Earlier (May 15, 13:12): LG built Google Nexus 4 smartphone might finally be heading to the Indian market. The phone has been listed on the electronic retailer Flipkart with a price-tag for INR 25,990 and is currently “out-of-stock.”

The listing does not reveal any expected launch dates, but we hope to hear something soon.

Originally announced back in October 2012, Nexus 4 is the fourth Nexus smartphone. It features a 4.7-inch 1280x768p resolution display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The phone also packs 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2 and 8MP rear camera.

We have seen lots of news predicting India launch of Nexus 4 and also a lot of product listings, so we are sceptical about the Flipkart listing and would like to wait for an announcement or actual availability before believing it.

There is still no word on the Google Play (if it is happening) release of Nexus 4 and the site is also still showing that “Nexus 4 is not available in your country.”

We hope that LG or Google soon clarify the situation for the India launch of Nexus 4 and let us know whether it is coming or not.

    That’s a news now. Bought it from ebay with 1 mnth seller warranty for 21k. If this comes, it would be THE phone to buy at this price. Damn, waiting for the same. Plus, can you feature something more about the Oppo Find 5.
