LG Nexus 4 Production Stopped for Company’s Upcoming Smartphones?

Consumers who wanted to grab the LG Nexus 4 may not be able to do so as Korea's electronics firm LG is claimed to have halted the production of the Nexus 4 to make way for its upcoming smartphones.

LG Nexus 4 seemed to have fallen down from priority list of LG as rumours have it that the company seized the production of the smartphone to focus on the development of its future offerings.

One of the upcoming phones consumers must watch out for is the successor of the popular LG Nexus 4. LG may be releasing the Nexus 4's successor next month.

LG hinted that it is planning to develop and release more Nexus devices in partnership with Google and some of it will make a debut next month at the Mobile World Congress event.

LG Electronics SVP James Fisher went off on a tangent during the firm's packed press conference at CES and revealed that the LG Nexus 4 is just "the first of many" Nexus products it is working on, and hinting that the two companies might be secretly developing another smartphone or tablet device.

Fisher said, "Through our collaboration with Google, we launched the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company."

Fisher added that the firm will be launching its next generation smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. He said that "at Mobile World Congress next month and throughout the year, you'll see us bring to market more tier-one premium handsets in various screen sizes".

Recent rumours claimed that the successor of LG Nexus 4 will sport a powerful 2GHz quad core processor and upcoming Android Key Lime Pie OS.

The Google-LG Nexus 4 boasts a 4.7 inch screen display with 1280x768 resolution, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 8 MP camera and 2100 mAh battery.

The new Google-LG smartphone runs with the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which equipped the device with new features upgrade such as better camera options and controls. This has become the selling point of the device.

Don't think we would see an announcement outside of Google I/O to be honest.

This is ridiculous: they were unable to deliver the Nexus4 and are planning to churn out a new device already?

As nice as the N4 might be I don't think Google should be partnering again with LG for a new Nexus branded phone unless they can guarantee they'll be shipping enough units to keep up with demand.

100% agree, they gave LG a chance and they ****ed up, no one at my work or even my sister can buy a N4 as they are always sold out!

So they all can buy N4, even though they're sold out?

I think the problem was google's fault mis-underestimating the demand. As for nexus4 production stopping i highly doubt that. Rumours point to the nexus being unveiled at google i/o in may. Nexus4 has only been out for a short time, i can't see them stopping sales, i doubt they would have made a profit selling so few phones.

I'm hoping we'll get a 5" 1080p, 2ghz tegra4 in the next nexus and 13mp camera and actually have it run at it's full speed this time, this thinness obsession needs to stop.

If LG truly has halted production (Which I doubt) and Google allows them to continue to manufacture devices under the "Nexus" umbrella, they are complete morons. LG totally left Google in a horrible position. I don't agree that it was Google's underestimating that caused the issue. Google was warned well before hand that LG would not be able to keep up as well as Samsung has been able to when it comes to manufacturing of the handsets.

They should have known better, that $299 price without a contract was all it would take to get people to notice.
