We've told you earlier this month that Google has a Nexus 4 LTE in the works. We are glad to announce you that the said smartphone has just passed through Bluetooth certification.

The smartphone has the same model number as its predecessor, LG-E960, and, most likely, the same technical specifications. In the original Nexus 4 filling, dated September 21 2012, the Design Description field said "LG 3G Mobile Phone," while the new certification that was filled October 25, 2013 says that it's a "LGE LTE Mobile Phone."

There are no further details such as technical specifications or firmware version, but we should expect its hardware platform to be identical to the one of the 2012 Nexus 4 and to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. As a refresher, the 2012 Nexus 4 packs a 4.7-inch 720p True HD IPS Plus screen, quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 8 MP primary camera with 1080p@30fps video capture, and 8/16 GB of storage.

I remind you that when we first heard about the Nexus 4 LTE, our source told us that the handset will be available with 16 or 32 GB of storage.

The Nexus 4 LTE is expected to see the light of day synchronized with Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat, which will reportedly launch later this month. According to a new report, this year's Nexus flagship will go on sale in Google Play on October 31st, which means that the release date shouldn't be too far away.

We promise to keep this post updated, as soon as we get more informations about the device. Stay tuned!
