Google Refreshes Its Nexus Lineup

There has been a lot of new releases and announcements this past weekend, so in case you missed all of the big news from Google, we’ve decided to highlight what Google has announced this week.

  • LG Nexus 4 — The LG Nexus 4 is as close to stock Android as you are going to get. While the device does lack LTE capabilities, you should not doubt for a minute that the 42MBp/s HSPA+ download speeds are not impressive. Since the device is unlocked, it should also be understandable as to why there is no LTE as well. The LG Nexus 4 comes with top of the line hardware and will be selling in both 8GB and 16GB models. It will be priced at $299 and $349, respectively. The benefit of this guy is that it is compatible with hundreds of different networks as it is an unlocked smartphone. Just pop a SIM card in and your ready to go in seconds. The Nexus 4 will also be coming with the newly announced Android 4.2 and will be available on November 13th.
  • Samsung Nexus 10 — The Nexus 10 is essentially Google’s own version of the iPad. It is again, as close as you are going to get to stock Android. The device will be coming with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will be a true Google experience. The device is the worlds “highest” resolution tablet sitting at 2560 x 1600 with 300 ppi.  This bad boy comes in 16GB and 32GB models priced at $399 and $499, respectively. The Samsung Nexus 10 will be available on November 13th alongside the Nexus 4.
  • 3G Nexus 7 — Priced at $299 you’ll be getting the same Nexus 7 experience you’ve seen before, only you’ll now be getting HSPA+ connectivity alongside 32GBs of storage to play around with. There is also a model without cellular data if you prefer to avoid any extra charges. While a set date isn’t solid on the Play Store, it is expected that this guy will be releasing on November 13th with the Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet. It is priced at $299 while the 32GB Nexus 7 without HSPA+ is priced at $249.
  • Android 4.2 — Android 4.2 is the next step in the world of Android. It was once rumored to be Key Lime Pie, but it will be sticking with its Jelly Bean naming convention. Android 4.2 does not bring as many features as Android 4.0 did, but we will be seeing new things like Quick Settings, Gesture Typing, new Google Now cards, Lockscreen widgets, and etc. You can read our full rundown on all of the features by clicking here.

Google has definitely announced a lot of really cool stuff. The Nexus 10 tablet is something worth getting excited for if you were a fan of the iPad but preferred the Google experience much more. There’s definitely a lot of stuff going on this week in the mobile world when it comes to new devices. Rumors are even surfacing around a Samsung Galaxy S IV. Hopefully this summary was able to catch you up to speed when it comes to Google’s world.
