LG Nexus 4 to cost £390? Also, support page goes live, shocks no one.

Boom! The Nexus 4 support page goes live three days ahead of the official announcement! The tech blogs are afire! Well, not really. The reaction is more like …meh.

Anyways, here’s the report: a support page for the upcoming LG Nexus 4 (our full coverage is here) has popped up on LG’s website. The page is actually dedicated to the LG E960, but that’s widely assumed to be the designation for the next pure Google device. I guess they thought that another leak is a drop in the bucket at this point, so they didn’t even bother to take it down yet.

There’s not much information here, aside from the fact that the Nexus 4 will probably sold through the Play Store and through carriers (hat tip to Ausdroid for spotting this detail).

SIM-free LG Nexus 4 to be priced at £389.95?

Moving on, there’s another report today concerning the Nexus 4, and this one sheds some light on the one aspect that wasn’t leaked until now – the price tag of the new Nexus.

Paul O’Brien from MoDaCo received the image bellow from a Twitter follower. It’s supposedly a shot of Carphone Warehouse’s internal inventory system that shows that the LG Nexus 4 (black version) will cost £389.95. Sadly, we have no clue about what storage variant will go for that price, but it’s probably the 8GB model. For comparison, the freshly launched Galaxy Note 2 (16GB) costs £549.95 at CW.

And yes, there’s a white version of the LG Nexus 4 as well, but for that one, we have no pricing information.

So, there you have it. Would you be interested in the Nexus 4 if it’d sell for £390? Let us know.

    To be honest I think £500+ is not a sustainable price-point for smartphones. I certainly don’t like spending that much on a phone even though I bought a Galaxy S II.

      Not sustainable? Smart phones is one of the few businesses thriving in this screwed economy. Prices are more likely to rise than drop.

    On the LG support page:

    “Warranty Policy :

    with sd card support this would be awesome but with no sd card, no thank you

    • exactly, i don’t know why they don’t add a freaking sd card !!

    sometime it might not be a problem(the mentioned price) us and we may be able to afford it,at least if it has 4G LTE and if it is for 16GB! but as we have heard until now from rumors, it doesn’t have! :(
    without LTE, what a mess!!!!!!
