LG Google Nexus 4 with Android 4.2 available for pre-order in the UK, release date set for October 30
The LG Google Nexus 4 just showed up at Carphone Warehouse UK and it seems like all the leaks we’ve seen lately proved to be real after all. The Nexus 4 is based on LG’s Optimus G smartphone and it seems like it will come as a lower-priced device, meaning that Google is preparing to release a more expensive one soon thereafter, which might be developer by another company.
According to the listing, the LG Nexus 4 will only have 8GB of internal memory, though it will feature Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It’s weird that we’ve seen more leaks of the Android 4.2 and some call it Jelly Bean, while others Key Lime Pie.
It seems like the Lg Nexus 4 will feature a 360 degree camera, gesture typing, Gorilla Glass 2, NFC ( near field communications ), . Unfortunately there aren’t any more information about it on the retailer’s website, so we’ll have to wait until October 29th, when Google is scheduled to release it.
Other specs might include a quad-core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP camera, a 4.7-inch 1280×768 True HD IPS display and a 2,100 mAh battery. Unfortunately it won’t come with 4G LTE, at least not in the UK. As it was to be expected from a Nexus device, it also lacks a microSD card slot.
Fortunately we’ll soon be able to get our hands on Google’s new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, which will make people crazy about updates once again. Unfortunately there are still a lot of devices due to receive the Android 4.1 update and we already have a new version in the wild.
The website also suggests that the release date will be on October 30th, meaning they will start shipping right away after Google’s event.
