Nexus 4 Release Date

The new phone from the Nexus line, Nexus 4 will be sold online in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Australia from Nov.13.


LG's Nexus 4 smartphone, which was received with an overwhelming response in global markets, is yet to make its debut in India.

Nexus 4 was initially due for a November debut in India, but for unknown reasons the launch was postponed to January 2013.

Now, reports have emerged that the launch may be further delayed due to the spat between Nexus 4 developers - Google and LG. It was reported that smartphone makers are bickering over the pricing of Nexus 4 for the Indian market.

According to IBN Live, Google and LG have not yet come to terms on whether to opt for Google's US price model or let LG determine the pricing of the Nexus 4 in India.

In the US, the smartphone is sold for $299(8GB) and $349(16GB). In India, LG is reportedly contemplating to sell it at a much higher price.

Nexus 4 was initially launched in the US, Europe and select markets across the world in November. The smartphone was a huge hit among critics and consumers with record sales reported. Its stock soon ran out in almost all the markets and Nexus 4 makers failed to capitalise on the demand. 

It is very hard to predict on when the Indian consumers will get their hands on the Nexus 4 smartphone. Until then, consumers will have to wait for an official confirmation from Google and LG.
