Google is poised to officially announce the heavily leaked LG Nexus 4 during their October 30th Android event. We’ve seen a number of pics surface, even an early review. Now, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse is joining the good fun and announcing every spec possible, release date, pricing, and have even put the “pure Android” up for pre-order.
The specs, as expected, have the Nexus 4 coming with a 4.7-inch display with a 1280 x 768, runs Android OS 4.2 Jelly Bean (not Key Lime Pie) and is apparently the “fastest and smoothest version of Android yet,” a 1.5 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, NFC, 8MP camera that shoots 1080p HD video, 8GB internal storage with 2GB RAM. Overall dimensions are 68.7 x 133.9 x 9.1 mm and no word on the weight.
In addition, the description used for the Nexus 4 says it’s “a state of the art smartphone that’s fast and premium. With super powerful hardware and the newest software, it offers the best of Google, socialising and technology.” Some of the new features that they have listed is “Gesture Typing.” wich seems like build-in Swype – “a faster way of typing that lets you spell words by dragging your finger across the screen from letter to letter.”
The price of the Nexus 4 is reportedly £389.95, with delivery scheduled for October 30th. No word yet on specific details for us Canadians.
