The Nexus 4 is one hard phone to pin down. After a couple brief spurts of availability near its initial release, the Nexus 4 has been practically non-existent. Its availability status is currently marked as “SOLD OUT” in bold, red letters on the Google Play store. Why? Was initial demand really that strong for Google’s latest Nexus phone, or as a new rumors suggests, is there already a revamped Nexus 4 on the way?
According to International Business Times, LG has halted production of the Nexus 4 to “focus on the development of its future offerings.” With one of those future offerings undoubtedly an updated Nexus device.
During their CES press event, LG Electronics SVP James Fisher brought up the Nexus 4, saying, “This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company.” Of course, no specifics on exactly what LG and Google could be working on together were revealed, but it certainly lines up nicely with this new rumor that an updated Nexus 4 is already heading into production.
As for what the new Nexus would come with, IBT says a quad-core 2GHz processor and Key Lime Pie could make an appearance as early as next month.
We’ll be digging for more information on this rumor. Stay tuned.
