LG and Google will showcase a new addition to the Nexus range of vanilla Android-toting smartphones at the end of the month, it has been claimed.
According to French daily Le Figaro, the handset that earlier leaks suggest is called the LG Nexus 4 will make its debut on October 29th – the same date as Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 launch.
Details about the phone are anyone’s guess right now. But speculation suggests it will feature a1.5GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 processor and an eight megapixel camera, specs that bring it neatly in line with current top-end, so-called superphones from Samsung and HTC.
Unlike earlier Nexus phones, however, LG’s effort is not expected to debut a major new version of Google's smartphone software but will instead run an iteration dubbed Android 4.2 out of the box.
LG’s involvement in the Nexus project comes amid signs elsewhere that Samsung, which manufactured the last Nexus phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, is also being retained by Google for a handset apparently imaginitively dubbed the Galaxy Nexus 2.
