It has been quite some time since we have seen any leaks on the LG Nexus 4, which is probably because of the upcoming phone’s hardware has already been laid down on the table. Still, famed Twitter leaker @evleaks, has just revealed a few new minor, and previous unknown specs, along with a new photo of the device’s front face. The Twitter post has also confirmed that the earlier specs that were leaked, including the quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU behemoth, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB and 16GB internal storage options.
According to this latest leak, the LG Nexus 4 will be a tad thicker than its predecessor, measuring in at 9.1mm. In addition to that, the weight of the LG Nexus 4 comes in at 139 grams, which is a tad heavier than the GSM Gnex’s 135 grams. It is also said that the non-replaceable battery is said to be rated at a very nice 2100mAH. Of course, with the battery not being replaceable, that may or may not discourage a few people to get this phone. Mainly the people that are using it all day and/or depending on it for work (i.e. if a charger isn’t around).
It is really going to be interesting to see if the LG Nexus 4 is going to be sporting the same “800 charging cycles” tech that LG has been touting with the Optimus G as an increase over the current competition. I am also actually curious to see if the Nexus 4 hardware will be supporting the new power management features of the 3.4 Linux kernel that the newer Nexus 7 models currently feature. On the topic of software, evleaks has reported that Android “JellyBeanMR1” is going to be loaded on the device — which happens to be the same numberless version that has been recently floating around on some other prototype devices. That said, it is expected that the final device will be shipping with Android 4.2, which could be touting the Jelly Bean name.
To summarize all of this, the LG Nexus 4 is going to be slightly thicker, a bit heavier, and you shouldn’t have any need to worry about battery life (depending on how much you use this in your day to day life). Of course, as always, a final review or opinion shouldn’t be made on this device until we are able to see the finished product. It’s possible that we could be seeing this pop up at Google’s Playground event in New York City later this month on October 29th. Until then though, this device does look like it is shaping up to be something really, really cool. I’ve really found it hard to get excited about so me of LG’s hardware, but this LG Nexus 4 looks particularly good so far.
Is the LG Nexus 4 something you would be interested in based off of the recent leaks on the device? With all of the leaks, and then Google’s event coming up this month, it is surely something to at least be worth looking into, right?
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
