Details of a new Nexus branded phone from LG have surfaced online, as we count down to Google’s launch event next week.
A Carphone Warehouse pre-order page for a handset dubbed the Nexus 4 has been discovered by Pocket-Lint and suggests that the handset won’t be the mid-range addition to the Nexus range that some were expecting.
Nowhere is that more evident than the fact that the handset will apparently sport a pretty expansive 4.7-inch LCD screen and will rock the as yet unseen 4.2 version Android Jelly Bean.
Elsewhere, the spec sheet takes in an eight-megapixel camera, Near Field Communications (NFC) technology for contactless payments and a quad-core Snapdragon processor.
Assuming the details on the page can be trusted, Carphone will be selling the LG Nexus 4 from £31 per month with no upfront fee. Initially, at least, it will be available on Vodafone and O2 contracts.
The Nexus 4 is expected to be officially unveiled on October 29th, alongside a slew of Nexus phones from the likes of Samsung and Sony, marking a change of strategy for the brand which has previously restricted itself to one flagship phone annually.
The event is also likely to be marked by the launch of a new, high-end Galaxy tablet manufactured by Samsung.
