Nexus 5 Production Stops, But You Can Still Buy It

By 05:11 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

With the Nexus 6 already here to carry on the family legacy it is only natural that the days are numbered for the Nexus 5.

But the LG Nexus 5 still has a lot of appeal as the last-available budget-oriented Nexus device, a long-standing tendency for the smartphone line, which seems to come to an discontinue with the Motorola's premium offering. A report surfaced today, stating that the production of the Nexus 5 has ceased. But what does that mean in terms of its availability?

It is highly unlikely that the handset will magically disappear from the consumer market altogether. Vendors are sure to be sitting on some stock. The real question in how long will the LG pure Android device be available on store shelves.

In the US the Play Store has been consistently out of Nexus 5 inventory, which does not foredisclose very long future availability for the device. This was further backed up by a recent statement form a Google spokesperson, who stated that:

Once they are gone, they’re gone, so we’d recommdiscontinue people acquire them while they can.

There might however still be time to grab one as further comments clarified that Nexus 5 sales will continue through Q1 2015, or as the tech giant stated:

Nexus 5 will continue to be available for sale on Google Play and through select retailers in Q1 2015.

So if you plan on acquiring a Nexus 5 be sure to do it quickly or else you're in for a tough scavenger hunt around local resellers once backed-up stock is all cleared out.
