A report from the International Business Times has said that LG could have stopped producing the LG Nexus 4 in preparation for the LG Nexus 5. Speculation is that Google and LG may be working on the successor, which could be announced at MWC.
LG Nexus 4 discontinued already in preparation for LG Nexus 5?
The LG Nexus 4 has had a very rocky start and you have to ask why Google and LG would want to kill off the device within months of launching it. The LG Nexus 4 has decent specs, apart from the fact that it doesn’t support LTE. The price tag is also excellent.
No one knows why the LG Nexus 4 has been hard to get hold of, however fingers have been pointed in the direction of LG. If LG does happen to be struggling with production of the device, it may not be down to the fact that they have put it on the back burner. The LG Nexus 4 is one of the most high profile devices from LG and they would want to put everything they have into the manufacturing process of the handset.
It has also been said that LG are at work on a Nexus 5 to come out in the future. New devices may be seen from LG at the MWC. However there is some doubt that one of these would be a Nexus 5 handset. It is possible that Google does have a new device in the works; however they will perhaps wait until the I/O conference to reveal it, which is held in May. This is the event that Google have always used when revealing new Nexus devices, one of which was the Google Nexus 7.
So at this time we are going to ignore speculations of the LG Nexus 4 reaching its end of line.
