Google has reduced the price of its Nexus 4 smartphone to $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB one, as noted by Engadget.

The price drops aren’t limited to the US. The device is now available in the UK for £159 (down from £239) for the 8GB version, and £199 (down from £279) for the 18GB version.

There are also significant price drops for other markets:

The Nexus 4 was already affordable, so this latest price drop is a great deal, even if the phone is farther along in its lifecycle than newcomers like the HTC One and Moto X.
