Both white Nexus 4 models (8GB and 16GB) sold out on U.S. Play Store, Google confirms
As the 16GB white Nexus 4 is no longer available for sale from the U.S. Google Play Store, a publication confirmed with Google that the limited edition smartphone has sold out.
A few days ago we told you that the 8GB model was no longer available from the Play Store, and it looks like the 16GB version had the same faith. While it’s not clear how many units Google had in stock in the first place, we’ll remind you that the white Nexus 4 model has been labeled from the start as a limited edition item.
Android Police confirmed with Google that the stock has run out, and the company did not say whether the handset will be back for sale in the future:
[quote qtext=”Google has confirmed to us that “the Limited Edition White Nexus 8GB and 16GB are sold out on Google Play.” A sold out limited edition would mean the limited run is over, so the White Nexus 4 is no more on the US Play Store.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]
Before you start wondering whether a Nexus 5 is due shortly, we’ll point out that the black Nexus 4 models are still available in the U.S. Play Store. This is just the end of sales for a limited edition device, at least for now.
White Nexus 4 units are still available with other retailers, so if you missed your chance to buy one from the Play Store, you’ll be able to get yours from somewhere else, with T-Mobile being one good place to start.
In fact, T-Mobile still offers a free wireless purchase with your Nexus 4 purchase, although the handset is slightly more expensive at $427.99. That’s $19.99 down payment followed by 24 monthly installments of $17 each if you don’t want to pay the full price for the device outright.
