Another LG Nexus 4 Image Leaks Along With Name and Specs

Famed image and spec leaker, @evleaks, dropped info on the upcoming LG Nexus 4 this morning, echoing info we have seen a number of times over the last few weeks. For those not familiar, understand that this Twitter account posts press images and spec details of devices well before they ever become official and is almost always spot on. Here is what we have. 

Again, none of this is necessarily new info, but we would assume that it was pulled from an online source that has final or close to final details. The name Nexus 4 was included, as was model number LG-E960. Mentions of the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 720p display, 2GB RAM, 8MP, and new version of Jelly Bean were also mentioned. The phone will reportedly carry a 2100mAh battery and as had been talked about previously, two options for internal storage:  8GB or 16GB.

As far as the image above is concerned, you can tell that it has been cropped, probably to conceal its origin. It looks like the Galaxy Nexus, and the LG prototype that was pre-reviewed last week.

The rest of the specs according to today’s leak:

  • LG Nexus 4 (LG-E960)
  • 1.5GHz Quad-core APQ8064 chipset (Snapdragon S4 Pro)
  • 1280×768 resolution display
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8GB/16GB internal storage
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • Android build JB MR1 (some form of Jelly Bean)
  • 2100mAh battery
  • 9.1mm thick
  • 139g

The low storage limits are odd, as is the idea that this phone won’t have an LTE modem. I’m close to calling this a step backwards, but at the same time, if Google is making these two moves to keep the price incredibly low, then I can probably live with HSPA+ and 16GB of internal storage. I’m talking $299 for an unlocked, quad-core phone with 2GB of RAM. That would be a major win. I know that we have all become accustomed to LTE speeds, but if you can buy a new Nexus each year for $300 without being locked into a contract, isn’t that a deal?

That is of course, all speculation. We should know exactly how it will go down after Monday, October 29 in NYC. Flight booked.

    Has anyone thought that there will not be a VZW version of the Nexus this time around? The launch was a disaster, the VZW Galaxy Nexus lost and then regained AOSP support, and VZW being a pain in the ass in general, all could have contributed to the decision.

  • Simon Belmont

    You do realize this is the probably the Google Play Store variant right? 8GB and 16GB storage options to keep the price down.

    Carrier versions will probably have 32GB variants and LTE. Just saying.

    I don’t see what the big hype with LTE is. Now granted I’ve yet to use LTE for any length of time however having a faster network connection on your phone isn’t really a big deal from my point of view. If you’re worried about tethering speeds you can always get a stick.

    • Until you use LTE, you don’t know. It’s nice watching Netflix, or a Youtube video and it plays with no buffering in HD quality. or updating an app on the go is very fast. video calling when you’re out and about is perfect quality. Trust us that the LTE experience is unmatched so far, unless you’re on a good wifi signal.

        The problem is I can do all that stuff already on 3G with a strong signal, I can pull 9/4 in my house right now on 3G which is amazing. Why do I need it to be faster?

    With no LTE, good luck finding it on any carrier’s shelves. This basically means that it will sold exclusively online. That happened with the N1, and it was a huge failure. All of you guys preaching how Google should stick it to the carriers fail to realize how important the carriers are in marketing the phone. The Galaxy Nexus would have been a failure had it not been sold on Verizon.

      i hope you realize the point of the nexus project isn’t to make outrageously high sales, its to test the newest version of android and to showcase it to the community. It’s also for all the tech geeks who want to add custom roms and want more out of their device. just saying
