We recently saw some images of a Brazilian Nexus 4 supposedly running the newest version of Android, 4.2.2. It’s always a little difficult to judge the authenticity of claims like this, what with the temptation to Photoshop a forgery for a few laughs. But it turns out that this story is quite likely to be true, as we now have video evidence as well, this time from the Czech Republic.

The released video appears to be comparing some of the physical features between the Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G, but as I don’t speak Czech I’m not entirely sure what’s being discussed. There’s only a brief view of the system page towards the end of the video, but we can clearly see the new Android version number.

Unfortunately we don’t get to see exactly what improvements will be heading way with Android 4.2.2, so there’s no indication if there are any major new features included as of yet. My speculation is that we’ll most likely be seeing some bug fixes and performance improvements, and maybe a few small integrated features like we did with the 4.2.1 Jelly Bean update, but nothing immediately obvious like new camera features or the inclusion of Google Now.

If you want to confirm the existence of Android 4.2.2 with your own eyes, then you can check out 6:30 in the video below. And if anyone speaks Czech, let me know if there’s any juicy hidden information in there.
