LG says it’s not having a problem with Nexus 4 production

LG spoke to Chosun Biz, a subsidiary of  the Chosun Ilbo (Korean Daily News) newspaper, and told the publication that it’s not having any problems with Nexus 4 supply. LG claims production at its Pyeongtaek plant is proceeding without a hitch.  LG also used this interview to refute the recent rumor that says the company  is working on the next Nexus device.

This statement on supply, however, doesn’t explain why Nexus 4 availability is so low. The Nexus 4 is currently not available in the Google Play Store  and both the 16GB and the 8GB model have been out of stock for a while. If LG’s supply is not the bottleneck, then why is the Nexus 4 not available? Is Google really ordering an embarrassingly low number of Nexus 4 handsets or is there something else going on behind the scenes?

  • This is clearly a lie. It’s disgraceful that Google and LG would team up to release a phone and it’s been out of stock for such a long time. I don’t think anyone is even interested in the phone anymore because it was just a failed project.

  • Not having a problem? So whats it like when they DO have a problem? When you make a customer wait too long a the product, then they have time to think, and then they usually buy somewhere else.

    Looks like the next nexus will be coming back to Samsung. And if it’s anything like the rumors for galaxy s iv. Should be epic!
