Nexus 4 leaked ahead of Google’s big event

We have been waiting for the search giant’s big even on the 29th of this month to see what we are going to get. Some of the rumors which have already surfaced on the internet week before the actual event have suggested that we can expect a new Nexus device, the Nexus 4 from LG to be more specific. Also, Android 4.2, also known as Key Lime Pie, is expected to be released. There are another four days to go for the event to happen. But it seems like we already know what Google will be unveiling. How?

One of the biggest United Kingdom retailers, Carphone Warehouse, has listed the Nexus 4 already on its website for pre order. This way, we know that we are getting a new Nexus device. Also, the description of the new smart phone tells us what we can expect from the software and operating system department.

The description of the Nexus 4 smart phone on the Carphone Warehouse says that the smart phone will come with a 4.7 inch touch screen display with a resolution of  1280 x 768 pixels. The smart phone will be running on a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The smart phone will also have Near Field Communication (NFC), 8 GB of on board storage, and an 8 mega pixel shooter on the back of the device. The device will apparently be 9.1 mm thick (or thin, if you want to look at it this way). Also, the next version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 4.2, comes pre installed on this device. The website also talks about some of the new features in the operating system:

Search gets smarter with Google Now. You ask. Google answers, instantly, and with all the detail you want… Stay in touch with Gesture Typing, a faster way of typing that lets you spell words by dragging your finger across the screen from letter to letter.

And that is just Swype over there. The SIM free version of the smart phone is expected to come with a price tag of $600, according to Verge which provides evidence for that claim. Carphone Warehouse says that the pre ordered units of the smart phone will be shipped on the 30th of this month, that is just one day after the big event that Google is hosting.
