Google and LG to throw a Nexus 4 launch party in Brazil next week

LG Nexus 4

Despite being the country where Android 4.2.2 was first spotted running on the Nexus 4 in the wild, as well as one of the places where LG  builds the phone, Google’s flagship Nexus handset hasn’t been officially released in Brazil. That’s about to change soon.

As reported by the folks over at Gizmodo Brazil, they have received invitations from Google and LG to attend an event next week that’s highly expected to be launch of the Nexus 4. One Google exec later confirmed – albeit indirectly – that N4 will be the main attraction.

The event will be held at Google’s HQ in São Paolo and is expected to be graced by the presence of Hugo Barra, the company’s VP. As for the date, you can mark down March 27 on your calendar.

It hasn’t been confirmed yet whether the phone will hit stores on the same day, but we might have to wait a few days for that. Likewise, the price is still being kept under wraps. Here’s hoping that we’ll get to hear more details soon.

Still looking forward to grab the Nexus 4? How much do you think it will retail?

      really don’t understand why it’s taking so long to reach ANY other country besides those in the original launch. Seriously..

  • What is wrong with Google ??

    I mean why they are not willing to bring Nexus 4 to India huh ??

    That’s why I was damn pissed off when I saw LG as the manufacturer … :x

        you guys are the biggest morons i know .
        It’s nothing to do with LG , Google play store isnt there in india as simple as thats .
        Thats why galaxy nexus also didnt launch in india .

        Stop blaming LG its not their fault u guys are dumb fucks.

          Now Playstore is there in India too… Now tell me where is nexus4? Its LG’s marketing problem with its Optimus G will go unnoticed if Google India sells Nexus4 at a reduced cost.

    • VJ

      I feel indians should stop buying Lg phones…

  • Lex

    I think it will cost like 1500BRL that is like 750USD. I think i will stay with my galaxy nexus

  • aholsteinson

    This is nice to hear, Google needs to be more agressive in pushing the Nexus devices.

  • Luciano Moreira

    I bet It will cost 3x It cost in USA. Hungry Brazilian govern tax 100% over any device from abroad. So, It will cost like R$2000,00 or so… S4 will cost R$2500,00 :(
