Nexus 4 finally lands in Brazil for a pricey $845

by: Bams SadewoMarch 27, 2013


As one of the countries where the Nexus 4 is manufactured, you’d think that the shops in Brazil will be littered with the phone. Well, that hasn’t exactly been the case.

Things are changing, though, as the flagship Nexus handset has been officially released in the country yesterday at an event that was attended by Google’s own Hugo Barra, who introduced the phone as the best that the company has created.

Following its launch, the Nexus 4 is now up for grabs from various brick-and-mortar stores and online for R$1,700 or around $845. Pretty steep, eh? At least it’s a little bit cheaper than the LG Optimus G (R$1,999).

For now, the phone is only available unlocked, but it might be offered with a contract in the future. If you’re interested, you can pay the Fast Stop branches in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro a visit, while Ponto Frio will only have stock of the quad-core phone in São Paulo. You can also purchase the N4 online via Americanas.

Planning to get your hands on the Nexus 4?

    This price is a shame….in Brazil the cost of electronics is more than double of USA.This is the reason why many brazilians travel to USA to buy some gadgets.

    We (brazilians) say that the over-price is the “Lucro Brasil” (Brazil profit), where the companies sell their products with a high price because we are “fools” (and I´m really starting to thing that we really are) and pay for it.

    I have a Nexus 4 which I bought at amazon for US$399.
    The phone is great but it crashes several times, specially when trying to make calls. I am not sure this happens because of Android, or because of the Brazilian Phone company Claro (owned by Carlos Slim). I had an Xperia Acro S and it also crashed and I have a iPhone 4S and it does not crashes. Has anyone had the same problem?

  • They think we are rich. I hate Brazil’s prices. I always wait some months to buy devices after launched.

  • Imagine Galaxy S4 price here in Brazil!
    U$ 1200 or more!
