Nexus 4 sporting 4.7-inch display confirmed by LG execOctober 23 | Posted by sarah | Phone News Tags: Amit Gujral, Google, LG, LG India, LG Nexus 4, Nexus, Nexus 4
An LG India executive has spilled the beans on the Nexus 4, a rumoured upcoming Nexus smartphone. The exec said that Google will be lifting the lid on the new handset on its event on the 29th of October (Monday).
Speaking to IBNLive.com, Amit Gujral, head of mobile product planning at LG India, said, “Google will unveil the LG Nexus on 29 October and the phone will be available in the Indian markets by the end of November.”
Sadly, he failed to mention if the device would be landing in the UK, or any other area for that matter.
Aside from confirming its arrival in India, Gujral also mentioned a few of the handset’s specs. He says that the device will sport a 4.7-inch touchscreen and a 1.5GHz processor. Furthermore, he says that the device will run Android 4.2.
This lines up with previous leaks of the phone’s specs. According to past reports, the Nexus 4 will sport a 720p display and 2GB of RAM. Its specs are said to be based on the quad-core LG Optimus G, but look more like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Android 4.2 is said to be a minor update to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Although we can’t confirm this at the moment, we’re expecting to hear more about Android 4.2 on Google’s launch towards the end of the month.
On the event, aside from the LG Nexus 4, Google is expected to unveil 2 more devices, if leaks and reports of an internal Google video are to be believed. One device is a 10-inch tablet made by Samsung codenamed the Mantra. It is said to be renamed to the Google Nexus 10 upon launch. The other device is a 32GB version of the Google Nexus 7 with 3G support.
