It's been a little over a month since LG's Google Nexus 5X hit stores in India. Now, probably owing to lacklustre sales, the device has received its first major price cut in the country.
With the price cut, Nexus 5X -- 16GB and 32GB -- variants can now be bought for just around Rs. 24,500 and Rs. 31,900 respectively.
To check whether the discount offer is limited to Amazon India, we independently checked a couple of major e-commerce sites Flipkart and Snapdeal. Here too, the prices of both the 16GB and 32GB models have been reduced by almost the same price margin, indicating that this might be effective across brick-and-mortar stores in India as well.
However, Nexus 5X's phablet sibling Google Nexus 6P made by Huawei have not received any price-cut as such.
As of now, neither Google nor LG have released a press statement with regard to slashing of Nexus 5X series price in India. Stay tuned for more updates.
