The wireless charger for the LG Nexus 4 smartphone is now available in the Google Play store.
The accessory retails for $59.99 and ships in less than one week. The charger bears a striking resemblance to the Nexus Q device that Google pulled off shelves after its initial launch last year.
Google originally announced the wireless charger for the Nexus 4 back in October. It's almost 4 months later and Google has finally posted it in the Play store, allowing customers to order the device. The charger can reportedly give the Nexus 4 a full charge in 4 hours time.
The Nexus 4 smartphone reached a milestone this week as Google has sold 1 million units of the handset. This was confirmed by a "Senior Member" of the Android hacking community, who claims the company reached this amount by selling the millionth unit in Turkey.
Google or LG has not confirmed this information, however, the device has been flying out of stock since its initial release three months ago, so this is not that far-fetched.
A Nexus 4 white variant could also be in the works.
PhoneArena reported some information from an anonymous tipster which confirmed this new version of the hit smartphone this week.
This Nexus 4 features a white body with silver trimming. The device in the picture looks legitimate and could also be the successor to the original Nexus 4. However, it seems like it is a bit too soon for the company to be releasing another model.
The Nexus 4 is finally available again in the Google Play store after being sold out for quite awhile.
The device retails for $299 and comes automatically unlocked. This makes the smartphone a steal as many handsets with equal or better specifications cost double the price unlocked.
