LG’s first Nexus smartphone could become official in a matter of weeks
LG’s first handset to be included in the popular Nexus lineup appears set to arrive on shelves in at least two color flavors, namely Black and White, the latest info on the matter suggests.The handset has been spotted in The Carphone Warehouse’s inventory system with both color options coming to the retailer, and with the name of LG Nexus 4 attached to it.
A screenshot proving that is available courtesy of The Verge, although no other details on the device have been provided.
However, one thing that is certain is that the phone is indeed set to arrive on the market in the near future, and that it will indeed sport the Nexus name next to it.
Spotted online as the LG E960 Mako, the upcoming nexus smartphone is expected to pack a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor inside.
The fact that it is called Nexus 4 at The Carphone Warehouse could suggest that it is the fourth handset in Google’s series, or could be an indicator of its screen size, the same as the Nexus 7 name was.
The handset has been rumored to arrive on shelves with a 4.7-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a 1280 x 768-pixel resolution.
The 1.5GHz processor would be complemented by 2GB of RAM, while Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (or a newer flavor of the operating system) is said to be running on it.
Unfortunately, no specific info on when the new mobile phone might arrive on shelves has been provided, though it might not be too long before these details are announced.
Google is expected to announce the new smartphone – along with some other Nexus devices, for that matter – at the celebration of one year since the launch of Galaxy Nexus (which would coincide with the five-year anniversary of Android), so stay tuned for more on this.
