With the hurricane on the east coast spoiling the Google Nexus party, we expected that Mountain View will make us wait a few more days. Apparently, they did not want to do that. So, Google quietly revamped its entire Nexus line today and showed us the best from their camp.
First comes the Nexus 4, an LG built smartphone running Android 4.2 with same specifications as indicated by the leaks - a 4.7 inch 1280x768 display, 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, an 8 megapixel Sony made BSI camera sensor and an option for either 8 or 16 GB of storage. Nexus 4 will be available unlocked in the first half of November with the 8 GB version costing $299 and the 16 GB, for fifty dollars more. One notable omission here is LTE, which ironically was present in last year’s Samsung built Galaxy Nexus. If we leave this niggle, its a beautiful device, and perhaps one among the handful of phones we’ve really liked till date.
