For those out of the loop, we should note that the LG Nexus 4 smartphone is expected to hit the market with a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor inside, the same as the LG Optimus G did (the company’s Google phone is based on that flagship device).
It is also said to hit shelves with a 4.7-inch touchscreen display that can deliver a 768 x 1184 pixel resolution (320 dpi) and with an Adreno 320 GPU inside.
Moreover, the smartphone
should sport 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and 8GB of internal memory, without a microSD memory card slot to expand it. The phone’s battery is expected to provide up to 12 hours of talk time.
Nexus 4 should hit shelves at The Carphone Warehouse at £390 (about $504 / €485) SIM-Free, but no specific info on when that might happen has been provided as of now.
With Google postponing today’s Android event due to Hurricane Sandy, it remains to be seen when exactly the device will be officially introduced, so stay tuned for more details in this.
