As of now, the discount in Nexus 4 is in offing for selective markets which include US, UK, Canada, Germany, Spain, Korea and Australia and the discount was made public through Google’s official Twitter handle. 

The tweet read – “We’ve lowered the price of #Nexus4. Get it for 25% off or more in Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, Korea, UK, UK.”

It should be mentioned here that Google has revised the price of Nexus 4 for the first time and it’s being offered at a price of USD 299 for 8GB variant and the 16GB variant is available at USD 349.

The reduction in price can be considered as an attempt to boost up the sales ahead of Apple’s announcement of the new iPhone 5C, which is said to be low-cost version of the iPhone and is expected to compete against Android smartphones like Nexus 4.

Cupertino-based Apple is likely to come out with the iPhone 5C along with the iPhone 5S, the next generation iPhone on September 10 in San Francisco.
