Since Google is gearing up to launch its latest device Nexus 5, it has just revealed that it is going to drop the price of one of its finest flagship Smartphone Nexus 4 in order to increase its sale before Nexus 5 enters the market. The expected drop in the price is 25%. Nexus 4 8GB variant which has been selling for a price of $249 will be available now for just $199.
On the other hand, its 16 GB variant which are previous at sale for $349 can now be purchased for $249. However, it is expected that Nexus 4 will be available for sale along with Nexus 5. The 25% decline in price is applicable in Canada, USA, UK, Korea, Germany, Spain and Australia.
However, the other marker will not be lagging. Markets, such as India, where Google does not sell Nexus 4 via play store will also experience some cut in the prices. This Smartphone that has been available in India for Rs.25, 000 will be available for just Rs.18, 000 after the price drop. This will surely increase its sales tremendously.
Some of the key features of Nexus 4 include:
Screen: It comes with a 720 pixel resolution touch display of 4.7 inches.
Processor: It runs on a 1.5 Giga Hertz Snapdragon S4 pro quad core processor.
