Google Says Nexus 5 Production Discontinued, Limited Stocks Available
A Google spokesperson has revealed that the company has discontinued production of the 2013 Nexus 5.

Speaking to Tech Radar, the company's representative said, "Once they are gone, they're gone, so we'd suggest people get them while they can". The comment from the Google spokesperson indicates the Nexus 5 might soon not be available to buy.

However, Google will continue to sell the Nexus 5 via Google Play and select retailers in Q1 2015. The company in an emailed statement told The Verge, "Nexus 5 will continue to be available for sale on Google Play and through select retailers in Q1 2015."

Additionally, Google has also quietly removed the Red and White colour versions of the Nexus 5 from Google Play, first reported by Tech Radar. Interestingly, the Google Play India also lists the Nexus 5 in just Black colour variant. Google back in February introduced the Nexus 5 Red variant in India.

At the time of writing, the Nexus 5 was listed as 'out of inventory' on Google Play India with no word on when the stocks will be replenished. The Google Nexus 5 went on sale in India same time last year and has been available in two storage variants - the 16GB model at Rs. 28,999, and the 32GB variant at Rs. 32,999. The handset was the platform lead device for Android 4.4 KitKat.

Some of the highlight specifications of the Nexus 5 include a 4.95-inch full-HD IPS display; a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor; 2GB of RAM; 8.0-megapixel rear camera; 1.3-megapixel front camera, and a 2300mAh battery.

Last month, Google started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop  OTA update for older Nexus devices including the Nexus 5.
