16GB Nexus 4 now sold out on Google Play

by: Bams SadewoDecember 15, 2012


Two weeks ago, we reported that the 8GB Nexus 4 has sold out on Google Play. Those who managed to grab the last few units of the phone were told to wait up to 10 weeks for the shipment. Now, the 16GB Nexus 4 is following the steps of the smaller variant, as it’s become unavailable on the Play Store.

Before Google ran out of the 16GB Nexus 4, the shipping date was listed as “8-9 weeks”. This means if you ordered the Nexus 4 in 16GB flavor before it was sold out, the phone may only arrive in February. Here’s hoping that Google will have more stocks of both variants sooner rather than later.

If you simply must have the Nexus 4 before the end of the year, you might be able to score one from T-Mobile. While the phone is currently still listed as “out of stock” on the website, we heard that T-Mo will have more units coming in soon. We’ll keep you posted.

      No fair. I ordered one on the 6th december in the uk (with delivery estimated to take 5-6 weeks) and it is still listed as pre-ordered.

    I ordered a 16GB on Nov 27. Google says it shipped twice but has never charged my card and, of course, I never got it. Multiple attempts to go through support with no “real” help…. No one to go to and solve the problem. Very disappointing.

    Google should remove Nexus 4 from Google Play. No reason to keep a phone in a shop if it cannot be purchased.
