Google Nexus 4 finally available in LG's home country

Google Nexus 4 finally available in LG's home country
The Google Nexus 4, which was sold out on a number of occasions, was certainly one of the most demanded Android handsets of 2012. Despite the lack of LTE connectivity, it took months from the time that the phone originally went on sale last November, for LG to finally build up enough inventory to meet demand. Part of the reason for this demand, besides the sleek design, the stock Android UI and the hope for quick updates, was the $299 off-contract price for the handset.

Ironically, even though the device was designed in South Korea by LG, it has not been offered in the country. That is, until now. The South Korean Google Play Store has the Google Nexus 4 available in both 8GB and 16GB variants priced at 399,000 won ($350 USD), and 459,000 won ($407 USD) respectively.

Before Google I/O, speculation was rampant that Google would unwrap a new, updated version of the phone with LTE connectivity and 32GB of storage. Now that the developer conference is over and no such phone materialized, we wonder if the second half of this year will bring a new Nexus handset. Or is Google satisfied with the Google Experience versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One that have been announced. Both of those models will launch next month.
