Rumours doing rounds suggest that LG has stopped production of the LG Nexus 4 to concentrate its time and resources on development of its future offerings. Top of the list is the successor for the Nexus 4 which may be releasing in the coming months.
The Nexus 4 was sold out in the first 24 minutes that it went up for sale at the Google Play Store in November. In the month of December, LG manufactured 370,000 devices. However, it still couldn’t fulfil the demand for the handset. Nexus phones have never been massive sellers, but the Nexus was a good product with great features at a good price.
LG revealed its plans to develop and release more Nexus devices partnering with Google. which are set to release in coming months at the Mobile World Congress event at Barcelona along with other tier-one premium handsets in various screen sizes by the company. LG Electronics, Senior VP, James 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.”
The Google-LG Nexus 4 has Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, a 4.7 inch screen display with 1280 x 768 resolution, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 8MP camera and 2100 mAh battery. Rumours suggest that the successor of LG Nexus 4 will sport a powerful 2GHz quad core processor and upcoming Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie operating system.
LG officials have however denied rumours of slowdown in Nexus 4 production or work on any news editions of the Nexus series.
