Google Nexus 4 goes back on sale

Google's latest flagship smartphone, the Nexus 4, is set to go back on sale later on Tuesday, having sold out just a few minutes after launching earlier this year.

Google confirmed the Nexus 4 will go back on sale via an email message sent out on Tuesday afternoon at around 3pm.

"Nexus 4 will be available for purchase later today. Order yours from Google Play starting today, December 4 at 5pm GMT," reads the email.

The 8GB and 16GB models of the Nexus 4 had originally sold out mere minutes after launching in the UK on 13 November.

Google had originally remained tight-lipped about when the smartphone would go back on sale, leaving buyers with a nebulous promise of "soon".

The Nexus 4 was unveiled at the end of October and runs using Google's latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

The device aims to target the same affordable market as the Nexus 7 tablet, with the 8GB model retailing for a modest £239 and the 16GB £279.

Google also released an update to its Play Store and its new Nexus 10 tablet by Samsung, alongside its Nexus 4 smartphone.
