We know that LG is making a Nexus phone for Google. The only thing was that we didn’t know much about the phone. There were a few images, but nothing else. A leak today provides us a lot more information, and you should be excited.
Master leaker @evleaks revealed on Twitter this morning the full specs for the LG Nexus 4. The original leaked imaged showed a device that looked similar to LG’s recently unveiled Optimus G handset. The new image, while not as detailed, appears to look similar.
Unfortunately, @evleaks doesn’t have shots of the back or sides of the device. The front can only tell us so much, and even then, it’s not much. That’s where the specs of the device come in, and @evleaks has them.
The phone will feature a 1.5GHz Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 1280×768 4.7-inch display, 2GB of RAM, 8GB/16GB internal storage, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, Jelly Bean, 2100mAh battery, and it’s all contained in a package that’s 9.1mm thick. Any way you slice it, those are some impressive specs. There’s no word on connectivity speeds, but DroidLife speculates that it won’t have 4G LTE to cut costs.
The leak doesn’t say whether or not this is the phone that Google will be showing off at its October 29 event in New York City, but there’s a good chance it is. There’s also rumors of a 32GB Nexus 7, 10-inch Samsung Nexus tablet, and $99 tablet floating around. If all this comes to pass, Google may be able to pull attention away from the iPad Mini.
