LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10 are the most anticipated devices that Google will be launching on the event that will be taking place on 29th of this month.
Both the devices are no secret. Yesterday, I had posted about leaked manual of the upcoming Samsung Nexus 10 and following the bigger brother’s path is the LG Nexus 4. Apparently, LG UK has posted the manual document of LG Nexus 4 on its website.
The manual is a pretty standard document, and since we already have lot of information about the device, the document doesn’t disclose any new details about the Nexus 4. The only important revelation is that Google will be launching both, 8GB and 16GB models of the phone. It was previously assumed that Nexus 4 will be only sold in 8GB variant, which is a bit sad considering that most of Nexus devices don’t come with microSD card slot, so there is no way one can expand the storage if he requires to do so. Another interesting detail we can deduce from the document is that the diagram shows an induction coil on the back of the device, which means Nexus 4 will support wireless charging. The manual, however, just lists a normal cable charger, which means that the wireless charger won’t be included in the retail package and customer will have to buy the wireless charging unit separately.
The LG Nexus 4 popped up on LG’s product support page recently as LGE960 and the documents which were leaked today also are listed under the name LGE960. Speaking of specs, the phone was recently showcased at a UK phone retailer, Carphone Warehouse, and its legit-looking splash page contained details about the specs which are congruent with the previously leaked specs.
According to the splash page, the Nexus 4 will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon CPU running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 2 gig of RAM, NFC, an 8-megapixel camera and a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display. Further detailed specs list it as being 9.1mm thin.
The LG Nexus 4 is most probably the most leaked device ever. Between numerous pictures, phones left at bar, and an in-depth review, there’s nothing more to be learnt about the device, except the price of course. Talking of the price, an image of the Carphone Warehouse inventory systems shows the price of £389.95 for the SIM-free version of the Nexus 4, available in both black and white colors. We’ve already seen Nexus 7 being priced higher in the UK when compared to US, so most probably the price tag for Nexus 4 will be little lower in the US.
The device has same screen size as the best-selling Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X handsets, but with substantially higher pixel density, so this device should be a better media device and the user should be able to watch videos with better detail. The device is expected to launch with the latest version of Android, the Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie. What are your thoughts on this device? Let us know in the comment section below.
