LG releases white Google Nexus 4, pours cold water on Nexus 5 rumors

Ian Paul | May 29, 2013
Google's Nexus 4 smartphone is not at the end of its life despite suspicions to the contrary during the run-up to Google I/O.

The Nexus 4 also has a great price. You can pick up a 16GB version of the phone without a contract for just $350. Most premium smartphones, by comparison, will set you back at least $500 to $650 without a two-year contract.

But that cheap price doesn't buy you LTE compatibility; instead, you're stuck with 3G. The lack of LTE is one reason why many were hoping to see a new Nexus smartphone during Google's I/O event, even though the Nexus 4 only rolled out in November. Instead, Google opted to introduce a version of the LTE-based Samsung Galaxy S4 running the standard version of Android sans Samsung's TouchWiz overlay. The Galaxy S4 Google Edition will be available from Google Play on June 26 for $650.
