Google’s affordable stock Android handset just became even more affordable. On Wednesday, the search giant announced a $100 price cut for the Nexus 4, listing the company’s 8GB model at $200 and the 16GB model at $250.
The company is approaching the anniversary date of its latest Nexus handset, making the recent price decrease more than appropriate.
The price drop also comes in the wake of Google’s recent release of the affordable Moto X from its Motorola subsidiary. However, it’s unlikely that the Moto X will remain Google’s only phone and the recent drop in price might indicate that a Nexus 4 replacement is currently in the works.
Google has announced via the company’s Google Play Twitter account that it is currently offering a price cut on the Nexus 4 in a handful of countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, Korea, Spain, UK and the United States.
Whether or not Google has a new Nexus handset in production, with a $100 price cut, the Nexus 4 is currently one of the most affordable stock Android handsets on the market.
