It’s official: Nexus 5 is out of the Google Store for good
Google confirmed that it won’t be selling the Nexus 5 anymore, though the device will continue to be available from some retailers and carriers.
The Nexus 5 briefly went out of sale last year, but Google replenished the stock on December 6. Back then, the company said the device would continue to be available in Q1 2015. Now the inevitable has happened – in a statement to The Verge, Google confirmed that the Nexus 5 is gone for good this time: “While some inventory of Nexus 5 still exists (with our retail and carrier partners), our focus is on the Nexus 6 at this time.”
Despite a lot of chatter on various social channels, there’s no indication that Google would release a Nexus 5 (2015). While that’s certainly possible, talk of a new Nexus 5 seems to be just wishful thinking for now.
Would you buy a refreshed Nexus 5 if it ever came out?
