About a month back, we heard an LG exec talk a little about the Nexus 4 shortages Google’s been struggling through, and chalked it up as simply run-away demand exceeding the order numbers Google had placed for the hardware. Now the company is once again discussing its ability to manufacture the Nexus 4, as well as addressing the recent rumors we’ve heard about a follow-up Nexus phone.
Korea’s ChosunBiz reports an LG official confirming that Nexus 4 production is ongoing, continuing “without a hitch”. This is in contrast to rumors we heard last week that LG was already stopping production of the Nexus 4 out of a desire to transition over to the manufacture of some sort of version of the phone with upgraded hardware.
The LG representative continues, calling such rumors “unfounded”. While admitting that LG will have new gear to show off at next month’s MWC, this hardware supposedly “has not been finalized”, so whatever it ends up being (Optimus G2, perhaps?) it sounds much too early for LG to already be manufacturing it.
