LG Nexus 4 specs, press image and teardown photo get leaked

October 19, 2012

    The LG Nexus 4 is most likely the worst kept secret in tech history to date, and while you’d think that we’ve seen all there is to see when it comes to this LG Optimus G variation that will soon be part of Google’s Nexus family, you’d be wrong. We have even more leaks to show you.

    The news comes via famous Twitter account @evleaks, a reliable source of information related to the mobile environment, which has posted what looks like the still-blurry version of the LG Nexus 4’s press photo. Alongside the image, a list of specs and features has also been tweeted for you, although they’re hardly surprising at this time:

    • 4.7-inch touchscreen display with 1280 x 768 resolution
    • 9.1mm thickness,
    • 139g weight
    • 1.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 8/16GB of memory
    • 8-megapixel camera
    • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
    • 2,100mAh battery
    • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean? (Android JB MR1)

    If that’s not enough, we have another image to show you. This time around we’re looking at what seems to be one of the first images of a teardown process. The Nexus 4 doesn’t come with a removable battery, so the only way to see the battery is to force your way inside the device.

    Once you do that you’ll probably see something like in the image above.

    With less than two weeks to go until the Nexus 4 gets official, we can’t but wonder how many leaks we’re going to see. Maybe somebody can share with us actual availability dates and prices?

      Memory is a disgrace… even on Galaxy Nexus, I thought that 16GB was too small, but 8 just destroys this whole spec sheet.

      Not impressed. First LG’s build quality is probably the lowest of the big smartphone companies. Second, 8 GB storage is way too little for a phone in 2012. I realize LG is trying to be very competitive price wise, but without a Micro SD card, that is just too little. Even 16 GB is pushing it. Third, a non removable battery is just dumb. The ability to just pop in a new battery if yours runs out or worse dies is a big deal. Forth, My HSDPA+ Galaxy Nexus looks almost the same, runs buttery smooth, will receive 4.2 JB almost immediately, and is oh so importantly already paid for. Google, take note, make a Nexus version of the Oppo Find 5 and the iphone 5 and Galaxy S3 will be relegated to the discount bin.

        Your an idiot, theres going to be 8 16 and 32 gb models take your pick, this phone will be 3-4 times faster/powerful than the galaxy nexus (s4 pro,), has THE BEST MOBILE GPU TO DATE (yes better than the ipad3/iphone 5′s) not to mention better than the horrible gpu in the nexus, has better cameras, a MUCH better screen, and for the first time in 2 years a nexus phone will be great for gaming and have the best/most future proof hardware than any other device. Th reason your mad is that you cant afford it/are a stupid samsung fanboy. Get a life.

        What’s wrong with you? You don’t have to buy a new phone every year. It’s worth an upgrade for so many users… like for those who still use Nexus S or Galaxy S2 or any older model and haven’t bothered to upgrade because so far what they have is good enough for them. Also, like all nexus phones, it’s great for developers who want to develop for new OS.

      people! stop freaking out about the 8GB. There will be a 16GB and 32Gb option too.

      Android without removable battery and no SD slot??…I pass – Get a S3 is much better

      • Jon1123

        yea. a slower cpu/ shity gpu, hideous screen, UGLY touchwiz, and cheap ugly uninspired design is “much” better :).

        • doradhorror

          lol people who vote down the truth. the screen is pretty bad compared to all other flagship phones. All other cons are undeniable.

          • Jon1123

            ummmm that’s why its said to be the 2nd best screen next to the HTC one x screen. Right???

            You’re a fucking idiot or a troll. If you don’t have used the devices hands on, at least watch a review video or something.

          And yet, it has the best GPU available in a phone. It’s anything but “shitty”.

          • Jon1123

            hahHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!1 the iphone 4s had a better gpu lol dumbass. and the nexus 4′s gpu is twice as fast (gl benchmark)… dont be mad becuase your $6-700 toy is now obselete :)

            • http://www.facebook.com/paruhang.chamling Paruhang Chamling

              Obsolete my ass. It will still keep on doing what I expected it to do when I bought it for years to come. And if I don’t accidentally damage it, I can still sell it and get what’s available at that time. Take your condescending ass elsewhere.

            • Jon1123

              Nah it won’t be worth shit then dumbby. The hardware is garbage

      • elebego

        I agree with that.Non-expandible memory is acceptable.But non-removable battery? Absolutely not

    • Valayil Abraham

      Not buying one till they offer at least 32GB storage and LTE. Time to take another look at the Note 2.

      “Not buying one till they offer at least 32GB storage and LTE”
      Why the LTE speed obsession? The idea of a comprehensive personal computer in your pocket is a wonderful notion but with mobile data costs prohibitively high fast pre-LTE technology is more than sufficient for reasonable use (I wonder if anyone still remembers dial-up internet?). The 8GB/16GB “options” should be scrubbed and 32GB made standard for the same baseline price – please don’t let Android turn into a rotten apple, and expandable memory should be there! As for the battery, any battery is “removable” it just may require a screwdriver in this instance (provided they don’t glue the case together). Could be a good phone & as a Nexus actually get timely updates unlike many others (looking squarely at you Samsung – premium pricing with extensively delayed delayed delayed Android updates – I’m not going to buy your next model just because you refuse to update my current one!!).
