Google Making a $100 Nexus Smartphone: Report



Do you fancy a Google Nexus that is pocket friendly? Well if your answer is affirmative, then you will be pleased to know that your prayers are about to come true.

PhoneArena is reporting that Google is planning to build a Nexus smartphone with a MediaTek processor, which will be a low-to-mid range stock Android phone and the price of the same will be approximately $100 (roughly Rs. 6,000). The said price is without any subsidy or concessions.

As of now, there are no further details available in regards to this affordable Nexus smartphone.

If these speculations are indeed true, then this model will give tough competition to Indian smartphone makers such as Micromax, Lava, Xolo, Karbonn and Spice. It is noteworthy that most of the affordable smartphones from the stable of these handset makers are powered by the low cost MediaTek chipset only.

Apart from the affordable Google Nexus, we are also eagerly awaiting to meet and greet the Nexus 6. As per rumors, Google Nexus 6 will be launched in the second half of this year. [PhoneAreana]
