Still trying to buy the Google Nexus 4? We have good news and bad news. The bad news is, LG may never roll out more units of the handset off their assembly line. The good news is, its successor is rumoured to be launched next month.
According to the International Business Times, “Consumers who wanted to grab the LG Nexus 4 may not be able to do so as Korea’s electronics firm LG is alleged to have halted the production of the Nexus 4 to make way for its upcoming smartphones.
“LG Nexus 4 seemed to have fallen down LG’s priority list amid rumours that the company seized the production of the smartphone to focus on the development of its future offerings.
“One of the upcoming phones for consumers to watch out for is the successor of the popular LG Nexus 4. LG may be releasing the Nexus 4′s successor next month.”
LG dropped a hint that it is working on more Nexus devices with Google. Some of these Nexus devices are expected to make an appearance at Mobile World Congress next month.
Speaking at the company’s press conference at CES, LG Electronics’ SVP, James Fisher, said that the Nexus 4 is “the first of many” products they are working on. Reading between the lines, we’re expecting to see more devices, either another smartphone or a tablet, from LG and Google.
Fisher said, “Through our collaboration with Google, we launched the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company.”
Fisher adds that “at Mobile World Congress next month and throughout the year, you’ll see us bring to market more tier-one premium handsets in various screen sizes.”
