Google recently announced the new Nexus 4 smartphone manufactured by LG. The device that carries the name of Google will be the primary Android device supported by the Android maker itself. It will also act as a developer’s phone and become a benchmark product for rest of the Android phone makers. LG Nexus 4 features great shape, specifications, and low price point that make it the next device of many potential buyers including yours truly – me. Google Nexus 4 has a glass back and elegant design that gives it an executive look. It is great to hold in hand too as it feels very light and comfortable. The device runs Android 4.2 out of the box, which is the latest version of Android version announced by Google on the day Nexus 4 was announced publicly.
Nexus 4 is powered by a powerful 1.5-GHz Snapdragon S4 pro quad-core processor which is boasted as the fastest mobile processor in the market by Google. It has 2GB of RAM and comes in 8GB and 16GB models. Nexus 4 sports a 4.7-inch display at 1280×768 pixel resolution. On the back it has a 8-MP camera while on the front it has a 1.3-MP camera for video calling. Just like the previous Nexus Phone, Nexus 4 lacks the microSD card slot which is a big disappointment if you like to expand the memory of your device. Nexus 4 does not feature LTE capability which is a big drawback of this device, but it looks like Google wanted to keep the price of this phone down and this is the compromise the company had to make. Google has also introduced a charging accessory called the Wireless Charging Orb for inductive charging.
Other specifications of Google Nexus 4 include Bluetooth 4.0, NFC support, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, 2100mAh battery and more. You can find the detailed specifications of this device in the image below.
By not adding LTE feature to Nexus 4 Google has managed to keep the price down. The device only costs $299 for the 8GB model and $349 for 16GB model.
