Nexus 4, LG’s first Google phone and the first to run under Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, is now available for purchase in Malaysia as well, exclusively through Digi.The smartphone is available for purchase with a price tag of RM 1,499 (around $494 / €375) attached to it, on the Digi Smart Plan 88, and can be seen on Digi's website on this page.
The smartphone is said to be the most advanced Nexus handset to date, though it has seen issues with supplies ever since it was made available for the first time in November last year.
According to some of the latest reports on this device, LG and Google managed to sell only a little less than 400,000 units so far.
However, LG is said to have started to ramp up production of Nexus 4 recently, which suggests that the stock problems might soon be over.
The mobile phone was made official with a 4.7-inch touchscreen display on the front, capable of delivering a 1280 x 768 pixels resolution (320 ppi), and with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor inside, clocked in at 1.5GHz.
The handset also features 2 GB of RAM, along with 8GB / 16GB of internal memory (though the actual storage capacity is less than that).
On the back, Nexus 4 sports an 8-megapixel photo snapper with support for full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.3MP camera on the front, great for making video calls while on the go.
The smartphone also arrives on shelves with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth capabilities, as well as with NFC (Android Beam), and with support for GSM/EDGE/GPRS (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz), 3G (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz), HSPA+ 42 networks.
Unfortunately, LG did not make it available with support for LTE networks as well, although it did pack the smartphone with wireless charging capabilities, HDMI port, GPS receiver, and with the usual set of sensors.
