Update: As we noted below, these images may be fake. We’re willing to bet the screenshots seen on the renders below are doctored. The “Nexus” logo on the back may also be added in. However, it does appear that this render is the real deal.
By now, you’ve probably heard everything you need to know about Google’s next Nexus phone— the LG Nexus 4. Google is all set to show it off on October 29th in New York City. At their event, Google will likely unveil the Nexus 4 as well as an updated Nexus 7 and a brand new Nexus 10 tablet. Today, some press shots for the Nexus 4 leaked thanks to @evleaks on Twitter.
The press shots (see above and below) show off a Galaxy Nexus-like device with rounded corners, metallic button highlights, and an on-screen button set.
Unlike previous prototype shots, these press shots show a distinctive “Nexus” logo on the back of the device below the camera and flash. Update: The “Nexus” logo may have been Photoshopped on the device render.
We expect the Nexus 4 to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5 GHz. Inside, it will feature 2GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of internal storage. The display is a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 pixel resolution True HD IPS+ screen. Camera-wise, we expect the Nexus 4 to have an 8-megapixel rear shooter and a 1.3-megapixel front one. It’s supposedly only 9.1-millimeters thick, housing a 2100 mAh battery inside.
The Nexus 4 is expected to run a newly updated version of Android Jelly Bean— Android 4.2.
As seen on the picture above, Google Now will likely receive an update with alternative routes for mapping. Looks like the top picture is actually a custom ROM, so we can’t verify any details. An updated Gmail will include multi-touch and swipe-to-delete gestures. In addition, we’re expecting minor design changes, an updated Gallery application, upgraded security features, and (possibly) a multi-user interface.
What do you think? Is this your next Android phone?
