So I was just about to write up the latest rumour piece on the LG Nexus 4, thanks to evleaks over on twitter, with the obligatory sprinkle of salt – just to be on the safe side.
However, it looks like evleaks was bang on the money. How do we know? Carphone Warehouse has only gone and started taking LG Nexus 4 pre-orders ahead of the official announcement.
In what is surely a spectacular faux pas, the UK's Carphone Warehouse has seemingly become the first retailer in the world to start taking official LG Nexus 4 pre-orders.
Of course, Google has an Android event scheduled for Monday, and the LG Nexus 4 is/was tipped to be one of the stars. Oops.
As predicted, the LG Nexus 4 is essentially an LG Optimus G in a curvier Samsung Galaxy Nexus-style body.
LG Nexus 4 specs are confirmed to include a 4.7in display (1280 x 768, 320 PPI), Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, NFC (Near Field Communication), and an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording.
As for LG Nexus 4 storage, it weighs in at a modest 8GB. We’re hoping/assuming/praying there’s a microSD slot in there.
And that’s the LG Nexus 4. Carphone Warehouse is promising delivery on October 30, incidentally. We’re wondering if that LG Nexus 4 pre-order page will disappear in the meantime. Great stuff.
