LG India Exec Reportedly Confirms Nexus 4 Coming Next Week

According to a report out of IBNLive, LG’s Amit Gujral, the head Mobile Product Planning, confirmed during an Optimus Vu launch event that LG would be making the next Nexus and that it would be announced on October 29 in NYC. He also mentioned that it will hit Indian markets by the end of November. 

His exact quote was:

Google will unveil the LG Nexus on October 29 and the phone will be available in the Indian markets by the end of November.

Tough to tell what that means for other markets. I wouldn’t be surprised if Google unveiled the phone next Monday and then put it up for sale the following week. We have seen 32GB Nexus 7 inventory shots that show the week of November 7 as being the big shipping week, so hopefully that means Nexus 4 shipments as well.

We’ll know for sure in 7 days.

    I’m sorry the release date has been pushed back till the end of December? Sounds familiar doesn’t it……. Arrrr#@*#@*!!!! Why can’t they release it the SAME DAY….. NOW that’s what a release should be.!

  • Chewy Cara

    Hopefully it works better than the Gnex. Android is great. The hardware blows.

      Whaaat dude your nuts…I’ve had the g nex for six months and absolutely love this phone..I’ve passed up s3’s because I think the nexus is just that good..its everything I expected of a good phone..it operates smooth..screen is great..32 gig of memory rocks I don’t have any complaints about this phone..and seeing I’m on vzw I’ll have this till April 2013 with no problem to see if they release the nexus 4 on vzw…if they don’t unlocked play store version is what I’ll get..but ya your crazy to knock the g nex


    I honestly don’t see anything great about this nexus.. i can’t go down from 32gb to 16 firt of all because well i used like 20 so far and i only have 8 left.. so no.. and then lg and nexus? Just no.. even samsung is iffy.. but i like the gnex and its form.. nice screen and build.. I want HTC or Motorola back please!

    This phone has to be the worst kept secret in the world

  • José

    The one thing that’s not making me want this nexus is the storage. Really hoping for multiple devices I need at least 32 gigs

    • michael arazan

      I have the 32 gb vzw nexus, and i think that’s low for storage, phone and I still pay for 100 gb Drive storage. Its ridiculous Google would minimalize storage in devices just to push people to use GDrive.

    • 4n1m4L

      be interesting to see how they implement multi-user with only 16 gig of space.

  • Ibrick

    I just can’t get over that chin..
    There wasn’t much room on the GNex to extend the screen any further down, but with the more squared off shape, it looks like they could have added another 1/4in on the bottom.
    Kinda makes the software keys obsolete if all that space is going unused.

  • I don’t understand the big deal about not having Verizon radios. I’m pretty sure there will be a tainted Verizon version like the Gnex sometime later. If anything, this gives me more than enough reason to jump out of Verizon and go off contract.

  • MotoRulz

    I want a Nexus phone.. but I will be waiting on the NEX one.

  • Gunga Dinn

    Does this mean the LG Nexus will be built in India? If so it will be a phone that can’t decide if your email should be plain text or html. Indians are known for producing crap products both in hardware and software. If the phone is built in China it will have a chance. If the software is built by Indians then I’ll say no thanks. It’s hard enough to believe that LG could produce a decent Nexus let alone it be built in India.

      What the hell? Are we Android enthusiasts allowing Apple racists now?Mo

    • abhele

      ayy microscopic eyes , get the phone or dont , dont cry where its coming from !

    • That’s quite ignorant. The software is built by Google on Nexus devices, by the way.

    • And yet half those Indians have better math and technological understanding than you will ever have, Its morons that like you who think China is extremely advanced, when they are actually still in the 50’s compared to Russia and the U.S

  • schoat333

    That phone looks so familiar. Where have I seen that before?

  • Mike

    Not coming to verizon. The main emphasis here will be for Google to sell through play store. Hence why the teaser said “The playground is open.” Also, no verizon radios inside, no LTE. All new Verizon smartphones have to be LTE.

    • MoonBarrier

      The Nexus S didn’t have CDMA radios or WiMAX in before it came to Sprint. Anything can happen at this point.

  • Michael_NM

    I still have trouble putting LG and Nexus together in the same sentence.

    • JoshGroff

      Still not as hard as putting Verizon and Nexus in the same sentence.

    • LG made some seriously solid dumbphones back in the day. They know hardware, and they know displays.

      • cmonnats23

        enV ftw!

        • Adam Emshwiller

          that phone was ballin’ before i got into the android game…

      • bitch_please

        I have had LG dumbphone for about 5 years now, been through so many things, spilled water on it, drop it million times still working fine with some scratches only.

  • JoshGroff

    Hmm, this or a 1W handheld laser. Decisions, decisions.


  • TheDrunkenClam

    Will Verizon get this phone?

    • John


      • TheDrunkenClam

        What a constructive answer. I’ll go ahead and assume you were the one who voted my comment down. I posed a genuine question. How dare I expect a serious answer?

        • John

          ? Nah. I rarely down vote any post except those stupid “first” comments. My constructive comment(not answer) was a passive jab at Verzion ever getting anything good Nexus wise again. It wasn’t meant to make fun of what you said.

          • TheDrunkenClam

            Thanks for clarifying.

          • HTC1

            I understood exactly what you meant John. I can’t even make that a bad thing (like he thinks). And by the way, you are 100% correct.

    • JoshGroff

      One can only hope. Otherwise, I’ll have to ETF. :/

    • T4rd

      I wouldn’t count on it. Though I was surprised that they got the Gnex, so I guess it’s possible. But the Gnex on Verizon has been a somewhat gimped Nexus (Verizon still sits on updated for several weeks after Google releases them), so I wouldn’t be surprised if Google/OEM(s) decided to pass on them this time around. I guess you could say the same for Sprint too, but they got the Nexus S and Gnex like 6 months after the international releases.

      • MikeCiggy

        I know we hate Verizon for delaying updates but could they really be performing extensive testing that Google does not?? Just a pondering…

        • Luxferro

          Just use other phone releases as evidence. They usually screw stuff up regardless if it is their phone or someone elses. They just want control, usually to force the removal of features. Google Wallet, tethering, ect.

        • Yeah, they’re testing their sales tools and apps work on the phone before it’s released.

    • Bob G

      No. They will never ever, ever get another Nexus phone again……… like ever.

      • Larizard

        this is so exhausting

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I mean at this point we don’t need any more conformations…we know it’s coming… Tell the exec thanks though.
