After a long and eager wait, the consumers in India can now buy the brand new Nexus, LG’s Nexus 5. Nexus 5 claims to be the slimmest and fastest Nexus Phone till yet, and is the first smartphone running on Android™ 4.4, KitKat®

Like the hugely succesfull Nexus 4, LG and Google have partnered again to bring out the next in line Nexus 5. Speaking at the launch event of Nexus 5, Soon Kwon, MD LG India said, “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.”

And Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Android, Chrome and Apps at Google said, “We’re excited to collaborate with LG on a new Nexus device. Nexus 5 is the slimmest and fastest Nexus phone to date and puts the latest platform innovations of Android 4.4, KitKat, right in the hands of consumers.”
