Most Nexus Devices are Out of Stock on Google Play These Days

Taking a quick tour through any of the Nexus device pages on Google Play these days doesn’t return much. Sure, the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), and Nexus 10 are all still listed, but few models are actually available for purchase. Over the last couple of months, we have watched as inventory levels of each has come and gone. However, those “out of inventory” notes seem to be sticking as of late. To be fair, the Nexus 10 went out of stock well over a year ago, but only recently have the Nexus 5 (in many colors and storage sizes) and Nexus 7 (2013) remained unavailable. 

As of this moment, the Nexus 10 in both 16GB and 32GB sizes is still sold out, as has been the case since last year. The Nexus 7 (2013) is only available as a 32GB unlocked GSM networks model. We have seen the 16GB WiFi variant come and go on a daily basis over the last couple of weeks, but it seems to be sticking as unavailable within the last few days. The Nexus 5 is available with 32GB of storage in white or red. The black model is sold out with either 16GB or 32GB of storage, as are the white and red models with 16GB.

So what’s the deal? Well, the Nexus 7 (2013) is over a year old now and the Nexus 5 is approaching the 1-year mark. Google doesn’t typically keep Nexus devices around much longer than 12 months, so to see them start to disappear now isn’t all that surprising.

nexus out of stock

The big question is – what is going to replace these devices? We know that Google is still invested in the Nexus program, at least according to David Burke, the head of Android engineering. That means we should expect new devices, especially with the official Android L launch expected to happen later this year. Rumors suggest that we could see an HTC Nexus tablet, codenamed “volantis,” with an 8.9-inch display, along with a Motorola Nexus phone, codenamed “shamu,” with a 5.9-inch display.

I don’t know that I would expect to see either of these new Nexus devices before Android L goes stable, as Google likes to launch devices running new versions of their OS, but you may want to pick up a Nexus 5 or 7 if you have yet to. They may not be available for long.

Cheers Chris and Tim!

    Ok Google, seriously. We need a new Nexus 10 (and dont let it be from Samsung). And a new Nexus 5 (again, avoid Samsung). Im rocking an N10 (which is really starting to lag) and a N4 (which is holding up surprisingly well).

    Im ready to upgrade both, are you?

    • slick

      gotta agree with n4, the only 2012 device that still got it. Would love to see google update it to android L maybe the last major update it will get

  • Dave

    I just don’t know how I feel about a 5.9 inch display. No Nexus 5 refresh in the works? 🙁

  • Spencer Walker

    For once hopefully Google will address the issues all nexus phones have first a 3000 mah battery next front facing speakers and lastly a great back and front cam

  • UncleFan

    I’m starting to get really bummed there’s no GPE for the S5 by now… I was really counting on that ROM.

  • Mazeko

    I’m kinda excited about the possibility of a 5.9″ Nexus phablet. Fingers crossed although I have a feeling I would have better luck of just playing the lottery than waiting for an oversized Nexus phone.

  • notes seem to be sticking as of late. To be fair, the Nexus thuoc la dien tu chinh hang eco


  • chris

    I hope the Nexus will be 5.9.

    • Spencer Walker

      Nooo God no please be 5.5 or smaller with front facing speakers

  • James

    So is the rumor that nexus shamu will be on Verizon?

  • RiceCake

    So according to tk tech news. The moto nexus will be 5.2in display not 5.9. That’s good news. And will have front facing speakers.

    • Jason Purp

      TK Tech News is probably the worst site you could possibly listen to

      • Pootis Man

        How come?

    • King Lo

      that 5.2 is the Moto X successor

    • Orion

      Lmao at you believing that site. Sorry to burst your happy little bubble but its going to be 5.9.

  • Zain Kalwani

    I was trying to get a replacement for the Nexus 5 and they sent me a refurbished Nexus 5 so I asked them why and they said they have stopped manufacturing the Nexus 5.
    That maybe why.

    • MistaButters

      I also got a refurb :/

      • Derek Gelinas

        All the RMAs are refurbs, and have been for a good while.

        • MistaButters

          I RMA’d back in February because my back was flexing and making noise (basically coming up) and I had never once dropped that phone. They gave me a new phone, but…. I just RMA’d now because I have data connectivity issues that nobody else I’m around seem to have. For example, I’ll be in a car with 3 other phones and we will all have 3 bars of LTE, but i’ll have no data unless I toggle airplane mode on and off. And it happens a few times a week at least.

          • Derek Gelinas

            Yeah, they were still giving out new ones then. It’s been a staggered change, too – color made a difference and such.

            What rom are you using?

          • MistaButters

            Currently just have stock rooted at the moment. No custom kernel even.

            What are you using?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Nexus in Drawer.. OnePlus in Hand. We’ll see what happens next

    • Tony T.

      Your name and avatar tell me you’re lying… which probably means you don’t actually own a OnePlus One because they don’t actually exist, lol

  • Jimmy

    All the panic was justified. Clearly Nexus is dead.

  • Pete Arado

    I bought a white 16gb Nexus 5 last week. Must’ve just made the cut.

    • Tony T.

      My GF bought a black 32GB N5 a few weeks ago, but yeah we noticed that the red was out of stock, which would have been preferable. Hopefully some light leaks start coming out. I’m itching for some new Nexus action! Even though I still love the crap out of my N5.

      Ain’t that the truth. That’s why I have a Surface 2 tablet now, as I got tired of waiting for Google to make up its mind with the Nexus 10.

      • James Briano

        I’m going Yoga 2.

      • Maarten

        Tired of Google? Man surface is a pain. Updates takes forever sometimes rollbacks and sometimes when attaching a keyboard and it goes wrong the only thing you can do is factory reset. Crap ass surface.

        • Krazonite

          Never had any of those issues on the 3…what the heck are you doing to that thing???

    • Pootis Man

      So true.

    • michael arazan

      lmao, i was one of those hoping and looking for the new nexus 10

      BTW HTC M8 on Verizon Has WINDOWS on it Now. MS and HTC teamed up for an M8 Windows phone.

    • archercc

      Too soon man, too many feels.

  • Moses

    New Nexus devices…my body is ready.

  • gadget_hero

    Do we know when to expect new Nexii a la the 2014 models?

    • Kevin

      Don’t know if we’re gonna get any phones from AKBAR.

  • Carlos Lopez

    Hopefully they revamp the entire nexus line at once and not fragment it with one device every few months

    • Pedro

      Or, maybe they release a phone and an OS. Update the previous Nexus tablets to the new OS.
      Then wait a few months, and release a tablet. Maybe throw in a incremental/bugfix software release with it. Update ALL the devices.
      Wait for people to get a bit more cash saved up, and release a larger/smaller tablet.

    • Uh…what?

    • MistaButters

      I liked the staggered approach. Tablets in summer. Phones in fall.

      Clearly that’s no longer their game plan.

    • Neomastermind

      I only just noticed that there wasn’t a new Nexus 7 this year. I’ve been looking to switch from my iPad 3, but the Nexus 10 has been ignored for quite a while. I was almost about to settle on the 2014 Nexus, but it never came.
