The LG-made Nexus 5 has made a surprise comeback on the Google Play Store, now available in both 16GB and 32GB variants.
A couple of months ago, rumors started to indicate that Google was preparing to cease production of its popular Nexus 5 handset made by LG. At the time, word on the street was that once existing Nexus 5 stock sold out, it would be the end of it.
Despite intensifying rumors, Google denied the premature demise of the smartphone and said that it will continue selling the Nexus 5 at least through the first quarter of 2015. The company has apparently made good on its word, as the Nexus 5 is now back in stock on the Google Play store. It remains unclear, however, just for how long it will remain available, as Google made no mention of whether it will keep selling the device beyond the first quarter. At the same time, Google has not done a very good job in keeping its Nexus devices in stock in recent times, and it wouldn't be too surprising if the Nexus 5 again vanished off store shelves in no time.
The Google Nexus 5 may no longer be the latest and greatest Nexus smartphone on the market, but it's still a widely popular handset able to deliver a great performance. At the same time, Nexus fans who don't care for the size or price of the latest Nexus 6 may find the previous iteration more appealing.
As previously mentioned, the Google Nexus 5 is currently available again in both 16GB and 32GB options on Google Play, retailing for the same price as before. This means that the 16GB variant retails for $349.99, while the 32GB model goes up to $399.99. It's worth pointing out, however, that the Nexus 5 is available only in a black color option, at least for now.
It remains unclear whether Google will replenish Nexus 5 stock beyond this point, so interested buyers might want to take advantage of this new offer while it lasts.
