Nexus 4 8GB Now Temporarily Out of Stock From Google Play

nexus 4 8gb out of stock

The Nexus 4 returned to the Google Play store last week after an almost two-month long absence. At first, it appeared as if stock levels were holding strong, even after Google switched the shipping time frame to “3-4 weeks” within the first 5 days for the 8GB model. Well, as of this morning, we were notified to a change in the listing, one that now reads “Temporarily Out of Stock.”

The 16GB version is still available, though it’s now shipping in 2-3 weeks instead of 1-2.

So even after a major replenishment, Google still can’t keep up with demand for their latest Nexus phone. While Google has reportedly only moved over 1 million units, I’d say that this is still their most successful launch to date.

    It still says 2-3 weeks for me.

  • Is a Nexus 4 stock post necessary every single day? Like is there nothing else to talk about? If it’s that serious why not put a small section on the corner of the page referencing “in stock” or not. No need for an entire post talking about it every single day.

  • I ordered a Nexus 4 8GB the moment they went on sale and have yet to have any sort of status update, charged card or anything. Google told me that it would ship by Feb 13th. I really hope so. Did anyone else order an 8GB and get it or order one and are in the same situation as me?

      ordered my 8GB on 1/31 and received it on 2/5.

    Just release the white N4 already…

  • jdomann

    Just ordered my N4 16GB when it says 2-3 weeks this morning, I hope I’m as lucky as the others here.

    8gbs, talk about useless

  • James

    Both versions say they ship in 2-3 weeks. Maybe the “out of stock” message was a glitch?

  • Denvertoad

    When the next batch arrives will it say “Temporarily in Stock”?

      With the hardware like that for the price that it is… It’s like a sore dick, YOU CAN’T BEAT IT!

    Why would anybody buy a 8Gig phone? Makes NO SENSE.

    • I ordered an 8GB because it was all my boss would authorize. It is for development and not necessarily a daily driver

    • It’s more than enough for essential apps and music/video streaming.

    I’d blame LG, not Google. A global leader in so many fields wouldn’t make this mistake. A crummy company that started by building the cheapest possible home appliances is not usually my go-to for a new smartphone. I’ll probably wait till a real manufacturer makes the next Nexus.

    I don’t know about you guys, but the Play store has it 2 – 3 weeks as of 12:24 today. Everyone can calm down a little bit.

  • I got this when it came back in stock last month and it arrived a week later. Went with tmobile’s prepaid $30/month plan and left verizon for good. Best decision I’ve made.

  • drama drama drama drama!!!

  • i ordered the 16 GB model wed. and came today!? i didnt even get the email confimation yet, no complaints at all, maybe they are just covering just in case.

  • Joe Isaacson

    Got my 16GB a week ago (ordered 1/29 & got it 2/1). I love it!! Sorry for the gloating (I was upgrading from a Thunderbolt, so cut me some slack!).

  • Mallahet

    A buddy of mine ordered a 16GB one on Monday and got it yesterday. Not saying this will happen to everyone, but rock on!

    Still waiting on ordering mine.

    I would say successful is pretty subjective. At least they are moving units, but they still haven’t shown that they or their partners are able to competently manage supply and demand with the new Nexus devices.

  • MrGy

    N4 are in and out of stock non-stop, not sure if news-worthy though

    • bull3946

      Agreed. I think we can just assume it’s going to be a supply constrained item for the time-being and fluctuate in and out of stock for awhile. People who are waiting to purchase it are keeping an eye on it. Otherwise, it’s not really newsworthy.

        I ordered my 16GB on 2/3 and received it yesterday. However it has a faulty mic. Replacement is on the way. Thankfully for right now I am still on Verizon, so it is not my main device.

  • Shane Redman

    Google’s mobile availability and accessories are like a running joke….when will it end?

  • Jeb

    Meh, the nexus 4 is old news at this point

    • JoshGroff

      It’s not old news until I/O.
