According to the phone’s pre-order page at Carphone Warehouse, the Google Nexus 4 features a 4.7in 1,280 x 768 pixel screen, which supplies impressive pixel density of 320dpi. The phone’s CPU is a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 and it has 2GB of RAM, the most currently available in a phone.
Other specs include an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and Android Jelly Bean sotware. Connectivity is as complete as you’d expect, with Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS all on hand. The only truly notable wireless connectivity inclusion, though, is NFC, which still doesn’t feature in all phones.
The Google Nexus 4 by LG isn’t without a curious disappointment or two. Carphone Warehouse indicates that there’s just 8GB of internal memory, with no microSD memory card slot. We also hoped that the phone would show off Android Key Lime Pie, the next big version of the Google OS, but this pre-order page suggests otherwise.
The Google Nexus 4 page, spotted by Pocket-lint, suggests that the phone will be available on 30 October, and can be had for free on a two-year contract of £31 a month. Vodafone and O2 are the two carriers the phone will be available on, according to Carphone Warehouse.
These details have not yet been confirmed by Google and as such should be treated with some scepticism, but they sound roughly on the money. We still hope that the Google Nexus 4’s may be greater than 8GB, and that Android Key Lime Pie will feature. We’ll be back with official details as they’re released.
