The price and release date details of the LG Nexus 4 have arrived fresh out of the oven, or Carphone Warehouse, we should say. The upcoming Google Android event is the place where this phone, along with other devices, is anticipated to be unveiled. But never mind that, the UK retailer has decided to give everyone an early peek at the handset’s specifications anyway.
Owing to a previous report, we’re already familiar with most of the information noted down by the seller. Firstly, the smartphone’s front displays a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768p IPS touchscreen. The Nexus 4 is touted to get its steam from a quad core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and Android Jelly Bean v4.1.2 or v4.2. A careful look at the information thrown up by the product page will tell visitors that the vendor seems a bit confused about the last mentioned feature.
Those who are keen about the amount of hoarding space their mobile devices can afford them may not like the 8GB of onboard storage and what appears to be the lack of a microSD card slot for memory expandability. On the connectivity angle, there’s Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, NFC and GPS. For photography purposes, users get an 8MP camera that’s expected to be complemented by the regular props like an LED flash, AF and digital zoom.
All of the aforesaid technology is fitted into a black chassis with dimensions of 68.7mm x 133.9mm x 9.1mm. O2 and Vodafone are listed as the carriers who will be adding the phone to their portfolio. Both will be laying out the handset for free with monthly plans and a 2-year customer contract. Data schemes of £31 per month and £33 a month, with the hardware coming for free, are the lowest plans being touted by O2 and Vodafone, respectively.
The launch of the LG Nexus 4 should fall on October 30 and it’s already up for pre-order through Carphone Warehouse. Engadget who stumbled upon this news through Xataka Mobile notes that several unanswered questions about the device such as the possibility of an LTE variant, should be clarified on October 29, the day on which the Google event will unfold.
