LG Nexus 4 image and specs leak: quad-core CPU, Android Jelly Bean

Twitter account @evleaks¬†tweeted early this morning some specs about the LG Nexus 4, the manufacturer’s purported contribution to Google’s Nexus line of Android devices. Most of the information @evleaks released has already been floating around the Internet, but with just another source telling the same story, the Nexus 4 is all but confirmed at this point.

Among the specs included in the LG Nexus 4 is a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 (APQ8064)¬†processor, a 1280×720 resolution display measuring 4.7 inches diagonally, 2GB of RAM, internal storage of either 8GB or 16GB, a 2100mAh battery, an 8MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The device is supposedly 9.1 mm thick, weighs 139 grams or roughly 4.9 ounces, and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The image above was also scored by @evleaks. It’s far from revealing, but it seems to be a photo of the Nexus 4 nonetheless. The jagged, pixelated edges on the bottom of the device suggests the original background was cropped out.

According to a rumor that surfaced a little over a week ago, the Nexus 4 is set to debut on October 29th at Google’s Android event in New York City. Pricing is still unknown, as is whether the handset will support 4G LTE.

LG’s Nexus 4 is hardly the only Nexus phone we’ve been hearing about lately. Google is apparently opening up the Nexus brand to multiple manufacturers this year for the first time. Just a few days ago we reported a photo of Sony’s Nexus X leaked. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus II is a possibility as well.

  • I really hope that’s not the new Nexus. The hardware specs look great, but the design is just depressing. Even the camera doesn’t look even remotely comparable to competition such as the Lumia 920.
