Google’s Nexus lineup has been a trendsetter in offering top notch hardware at competitive prices. However, the pricing did go a little overboard with the Nexus 6 and the latest LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P. Google and LG seem to have realized the folly now, which is pretty obvious from the recent drop in the pricing.
The LG Nexus 5X got its first price cut of around 20 percent, last month. At the time of its launch, the Nexus 5X 32GB (Carbon color variant) went official at a price tag of Rs. 35,990. But now with effect of the latest price cut, the same variant is retailing at Rs 29,950 on Amazon India. Likewise, the 16GB variant that was launched at Rs 31,900, is now available for as low as Rs. 24,290 – that sums up to a price cut of Rs 7,691 from its launch price.
To make the deal sweeter, Amazon India has also thrown in buyback offers in collaboration with ReGlobe. For making it work, the customers would be required to save their Order ID and then click on the Mobile Buyback link, which will be flashed on the purchased device’s page. Whenever the customer decides to make use of the offer, he/she would just be required to enter the device’s details, and soon after that the company will schedule a pickup from the entered address, and will also offer cash on the spot.
As a recap, the Nexus 5X comes with a 5.2-inch full HD display, and is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core chipset paired with 2GB of RAM. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, and sports a 12.3-megapixel primary camera with dual-LED flash, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The device is backed by a 2,700mAh battery, and also features a Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner on the rear. The connectivity options include, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and a USB Type-C port.
