Google has quietly introduced a price drop for its Nexus 4 smartphone.
The device, which launched at a cheap $299 last year for an 8GB model, will now cost just $199, The Verge reported. The 16GB model, which was $349, is now retailing for $249.
The Nexus 4 was praised by most reviewers for its sleek design and speedy performance, although, like other Nexus devices, it doesn't feature expandable storage.
South Africans wanting to purchase the Nexus 4 will have some hoops to jump through however, as the device wasn't launched here officially.
However, there are a few options at your disposal, such as creating a US forwarding address and then visiting the Play Store using a VPN service.
Alternatively, Kalahari is selling the Nexus 4 16GB model for R4999, if you don't mind the inflated price.
Did you buy a Nexus 4? How did you get yours? And are you happy with it?
