Google unveils new smartphone in India
In an effort to improve its sales in India, Google has released first-rate LG Nexus 4 smartphones that feature Quad 4 processors, among the fastest of their kind on the market. According to The Financial Express, these mobile devices became available to Indian consumers on May 16, 2013, and could significantly affect smartphone shoppers around the country and those who live in the U.S. and send money to family members back home.
"LG Electronics is pleased to partner [with] Google on the release of the Nexus 4 in India," LG Electronics India managing director Soon Kwon told the news source.
The new Nexus 4 smartphones could be attractive for Indian consumers
With its recent releases, Google could boost its profits and extend its reach throughout India. The new Nexus 4 smartphones are available at retailers in Delhi, Mumbai, Thane, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad and Ahmedabad, and these shops may find large groups of patrons attracted to the mobile devices' myriad features.
Each Nexus 4 smartphone supports both 2G and 3G networks, and the gadgets have near field communication technology that enables users to make purchases or transfer data from their phones. Additionally, these smartphones have built-in cameras that allow users to snap photographs or complete video calls.
More smartphones will become available in India
Google is not the only smartphone manufacturer that is making its mark in India. The Economic Times reports that Panasonic also launched new smartphones in India in May 2013, the first time this company has unveiled devices to the country's consumers in more than half a decade.
Panasonic officials noted that the smartphone manufacturer is increasing its investments in its electronics sector, which may help it extend its global presence over the next few years. With its latest gadgets, Panasonic may study the devices' sales to see how they will respond before releasing them globally.
The Panasonic smartphones could help this electronics manufacturer make headway against Apple and Samsung, the two companies that currently dominate India's smartphone market. Panasonic's devices, Android phones, have 5-inch high-definition LCD screens, 8-megapixel rear cameras and other features that could make them popular choices for many Indian consumers.
If more smartphone manufacturers search for ways to extend their reach, these firms could look to Indian consumers for support. Meanwhile, smartphone buyers around the country could have plenty of options to choose from, and the nation's economy could benefit as well.
