Google Nexus 4 update sees Android 4.2.2 introduced

Google has released a bug fix for the Google Nexus 4, with the handset benefitting from a newly launched Android 4.2.2 update.

Bringing a selection of fixes and patches for the latest addition to the Nexus line of devices, the Android 4.2.2 update, which is available as an over-the-air download, offers only incremental changes and not wholesale updates to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 rival.

Whilst Google, unlike Apple, does not offer a detailed change-log with each update, breaking down all the incoming alterations, it is believed the patch will see a number of minor changes made, including the introduction of an progress percentage check for downloading applications.

According to latest reports, the newly released Android 4.2.2 update, which measures in at just 54MB in size, also sees Google Nexus 4 handset owners offered new wireless charging and low battery alert sounds, enhanced quick settings access and a new Gallery app animation.

Google Nexus 4 Specs
Having been the launch device for the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean release, the Google Nexus 4 has gone on to become a true powerhouse of the smartphone sector, enticing users with its high-end specs sheet and wallet-friendly price tag combination.

With an expansive and vibrant 4.7-inch WXGA IPS display leading the Google Nexus 4 specs contingent, the handset features an impressive 1280 x 768p resolution and a 320 pixels-per-inch image density, all wrapped within a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective coating.

Lining up at just 9.1mm thick and a friendly 139g in weight, the Google Nexus 4 features list is further complimented by 2GB of RAM, a speedy 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and the option of either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. Although only a black Google Nexus 4 handset is currently available for purchase, a white model has recently leaked online.

With over 1 million Google Nexus 4 handsets having already sold despite repeated stock shortages, the device is rounded off by an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a second, 1.3-megapixel snapper around front. A 2100mAh Lithium-polymer battery provides the handset’s staying power.
