October 29: brace yourselves for LG Nexus 4, Nexus 7 refresh, Nexus 10 tablet

October 29: brace yourselves for LG Nexus 4, Nexus 7 refresh, Nexus 10 tabletWe were well aware that the end of October was shaping up to be a tad on the mental side, but this story suggests it’ll be crazier than even we’d imagined.

We’re being told that next Monday (same date as the Windows Phone 8 launch, incidentally), Google will lift the lid on not one, not two, but three new Nexus devices.

That’s the story according to an anonymous source of The Next Web “with knowledge of Google’s plans”.

First up, we have the LG Nexus 4, essentially an LG Optimus G in Samsung Galaxy Nexus-style clothing. LG Nexus 4 specs include a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, and a 2,100mAh battery.

Next, we have the refreshed Asus-built Google Nexus 7 with 32GB storage (sound familiar?), and a second variant that cranks the storage while throwing in HSPA+ connectivity for data on the move.

Finally, as we were saying yesterday, there’s the Samsung-built Nexus 10, a 10in tablet with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (PPI just over 300). Other Nexus 10 specs remain a mystery, though it’s expected to rock Android 4.2.

Speaking of Android 4.2, it’s tipped to introduce a PlayStore widget, and ‘Tablet Sharing’ – welcoming multiple unique user profiles. Yeah, that’s why Android tablets aren’t doing so well. Ahem.

A week today, mes amis. ‘Citing.

It may not be why they aren't selling so many but multi user profiles is a good idea.
We'll see what comes up next week, hopefully some nice kit

So, the Nexus 7 sold 1 million times from July to September. Is that really that great (compared to Kindle Fire, iPad etc?)?

If the Nexus 4 has micro-sd slot and removable battery, I will be getting one as my "forever" (until the next time) phone....

I just worry it won't have the micro-sd slot thought which will be epic fail IMHO... especially when you consider the Nexus 7 "8gb or 16gb" scenario and then all of a sudden they bring a 32gb out a few months later... its a massive scam, especially when a 32gb micro-SD is £14 online.... yet the price differential will be £40? over the 16gb version...

Agree. I doubt they'd have sold many of the first batch had people known about the 32GB version...

I think Kindle Fire is reason we might be seeing 32gb nexus 7. No chance it'll have micro sd slot.

The retail price of 32gb of class 4 micro sd is pretty irrelevant though.

Seems very low unless only counting ones sold direct
