The LG Nexus 4 is shipping on November 15th to users that were able to order the LG Nexus 4 from the Google Play store on Tuesday November 13th.
With two-day shipping, users can expect to get their hands on the LG Nexus 4 as early as Monday November 19th, unless users are lucky enough to get Saturday UPS deliveries. Originally Google said orders would ship immediately, but it looks like the process is taking a few days, which isn’t surprising given the hectic ordering process.
The LG Nexus 4 is officially sold out in the Google Play store, but Google promises new stock in the “coming weeks.” There is no option to sign up for a notification when stock returns.
Shoppers can also buy the LG Nexus 4 from T-Mobile starting this week, but without a contract the price is higher than the Google Play store’s unlocked $349 price. eBay is already showing a number of LG Nexus 4 auctions for between $400 and $450 for the 16GB Nexus model that retails for $349.

What is the Nexus 4
The LG Nexus 4 is a vanilla Android device which runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. This is the latest version of Android with new features like PhotoSphere for 360-degree photos, fast access to settings and new lock screen widgets. As a pure Google device, the Nexus 4 will receive new updates to the latest versions of Android first.
The new Nexus runs on HSPA+ networks from T-Mobile and AT&T, as well as on pre-paid carriers that use those networks. The phone features a 4.7-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 8MP rear facing camera and 2GB RAM. The phone also features wireless charging, though the official LG Nexus 4 wireless charger is not available.
Even though the LG Nexus 4 lacks 4G LTE, it can connect at fast mobile speeds and comes unlocked with no contract for the low price of $299 and $349. Combined with the promise of fast updates to new versions of Android, it proves popular with users looking for an affordable off contract smartphone.
