Google Reportedly Working on a Cheaper $100 Nexus Smartphone

Google has been a king in the smartphones market, as of now. Their Nexus series has been offering the best and premium range of smartphones and tablets, with stock Android and the best available hardware at a reasonable price. But what has gained attention of masses now, is the news that Google has been working on a much cheaper Nexus smartphone, which will be priced at $100. One cannot doubt the Nexus’ specifications, but when it is priced at such a low price, targeting the low-end smartphones market – it is clear indication that it will rule the market. There have been no information about the specifications of the device, however, what we know from the alleged report from the Chinese Website, is that Google is partnering with MediaTek to develop the new $100 device.

Last year, Google launched the low-cost smartphone, Moto G, under their Motorola brand but it ran on the Qualcomm processor, rather than the MediaTek. But, Lenovo is making a profit from the sale of the Moto G, which is priced at approximately Rs. 12,499 (Buy Moto G from Flipkart.com). But Google’s aim is different from Lenovo’s – it want to sell their Nexus Devices at no profit, therefore making it cheap for its users.
