Unofficial tally shows 1 million Google Nexus 4 units have been sold since launch
1 million units of the Google Nexus 4 were sold. While Google would not comment on the figure, the company did indicate that it was happy with how the phone has done so far in terms of sales. Meanwhile, the other day, XDA member draugaz said the 1,000,000th Google Nexus 4, a black model made on February 5th, was sold in Turkey. LG has really stepped up production of the phone. In October, just 70,000 units were made, rising to 90,000 in November, 210,000 in December and over 550,000 in January. That dovetails with information from an LG executive who said that production was rising and the shortages would be a thing of the past in the middle of February.
At the end of last month, the Google Nexus 4 had returned to the Google Play Store and while the 8GB model is sold out, the 16GB variant is still listed as being "in stock". That is amazing considering the phone would sell out within 30 minutes whenever it was on sale in the U.S. Google Play Store. We should add though, that the device now ships in 2 to 3 weeks, up from the 1 to 2 weeks seen back at the end of January. The attraction here is that the unlocked 16GB model, for $349 without a contract, is giving buyers a phone with great specs with no carrier handcuffs for a very reasonable price. Buyers are getting a 4.7 inch screen with a 318 ppi, a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2100mAh battery, an 8MP rear shooter that captures video in 1080p at 30 fps, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The best part of the whole equation is that Android 4.2.1 runs the show.
Now that supply seems to have caught up with demand to some degree, we could see a big jump in those estimates from the XDA forum and perhaps we will get some official figures from LG in the not too distant future.
