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.
