The US Play store listed the Nexus 4 16GB variant as 'out of stock' on its product page on Monday. According to The Verge, which sites a source, claims that the device may not be coming back in any storage variant. However, it notes that that LG Nexus 4 still remains on sale in other countries through the Google Play store but once the stock ends, the device will not be available.
Not too long ago, Google announced a price cut for the Nexus 4 smartphone. The Nexus 4 was available at a discount of about 25 percent, which meant that the 8GB variant retailed on Google Play Store for $199 while the 16GB variant retailed for $249.
The news comes amidst multiple leaks related to Nexus 4 successor hitting the Web. Earlier on Tuesday, the alleged Nexus 4 successor was spotted in new live images and a video. The leaked images of a pre-production unit of the next Nexus smartphone revealed the front and rear panel. The rear panel of the device included a large camera sensor at the top right side. The front was majorly dominated by the display with no physical buttons. The new images of the device matched the leaks we have seen as of late. A video that does not reveal much except the alleged lockscreen of the rumoured device.
Rumoured specifications of the next Nexus smartphone include a 5.2-inch full-HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz and 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The alleged Nexus 4 successor is expected to run the latest version of the Android operating system, KitKat (Android 4.4), which will in all likelihood release alongside the device.
