While we are hearing rumors and speculations about the new Nexus 5, Google decided to reduce the price of its exciting Nexus 4. This could be a move for clearing up the whole inventory and making room for something new to arrive. The price of this smartphone has been trimmed down to $199 and if you were waiting for this company to do so, now is your chance to grab one. This has been announced late Tuesday and the previous price tag of this device was $299.
This comes right before busy fall when both Samsung and Apple are expected to strengthen up its smartphone lineup. We could easily see Google releasing its much rumored Nexus 5 which is more likely to be really similar to LG G2. Speaking of it, the Nexus 5 could be equipped with a 5.2-inch screen and powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. The design will be lighter and thinner than its predecessor running on Android. Google has declined to say its future plans about its smartphone saying that that wasn’t their current goal at the moment. However, it hasn’t excluded the possibility of building a brand new smartphone.
Google was rumored earlier that they will release a new smartphone, instead – we only saw white and not even a slightly changed Nexus 4 version.
For the price of $199, you will get an elegant smartphone but with big flaw. Right out of the box, the Nexus 4 runs on Android 4.2 and has a powerful quad-core processor. Its camera has been the main reason why people consider buying it because it’s equipped with various features. It lacks 4G LTE support and the whole construction doesn’t inspire at all. It has a 4.7-inch HD touch-screen that offers a 1280 x 768p resolution that has been made with Gorilla Glass 2 tech. The Nexus 4 has an 8-mpix camera that gave some impressive quality on the images and shoots 1080p HD video. It also has front-facing camera that has a 1.3-mpix sensor. Other features are 2GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of internal storage capacity which can’t be upgraded.
Google started offering this device with a good price now and still feels like overpriced. I don’t know if it’s just me but I’m focused to the new LG Nexus 5 which is rumored to be released by the end of this year.
