LG Nexus 4 reappears on Carphone Warehouse for pre-order

After a false start at taking pre-orders last week for Google’s new LG Nexus 4 smartphone, prompting an apology from Carphone Warehouse, it looks like things are back on track for UK buyers to place their order. The pre-order page has reappeared with an expected delivery date of November 13th, the same date Google indicates the device will be available for purchase at the Google Play Store.

Pricing for the LG Nexus 4 via Carphone Warehouse is listed as free for customers signing up for a new line or upgrade starting at £31 ($50 USD) per month for the 16GB version, although adding data pushes the price up. Carphone Warehouse lists the device as being available for O2 or Vodafone subscribers. The LG Nexus 4 will be available for £239 ($383 USD) via the Google Play Store, so you will need to do your math to figure out whether a subsidized phone is the better deal. Hit the source link for more details or to start your order.

LG Nexus 4 spotted in Carphone Warehouse promotional materials

Carphone Warehouse just can’t seem to do anything right as it prepares for the highly anticipated launch of Google’s upcoming LG Nexus 4. A few days after prematurely listing the unannounced device on its official website, a slew of the company’s retail stores have begun displaying promotional materials for the handset, ultimately revealing some additional information.

Most of the details remain the same, including a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4, 8-megapixel camera and 12 hours of talk time. Although, the same listing shows the sim-free version of the Nexus 4 as being priced at £390 (about $504). Unfortunately, there’s no word on a release date, which isn’t at all surprising considering Google has postponed Monday’s Android event due to nasty weather conditions.

Pre-orders start for the Nexus 4 at Carphone Warehouse with delivery October 30

It looks like the Nexus 4 will be available pretty quickly following Google’s presentation this Monday. It could literally be available for order in the Play Store the same day, but we also know that Carphone Warehouse will have it the following day, October 30. The image is the same one that leaked yesterday and they list the full specs. They match up with what we have already heard, which include a 4.7-inch (1280 x 768) display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 8GB of storage (no microSD), and 9.1mm thick. They also mention Android 4.2 and refer to it as Jelly Bean, but deeper in the specs it’s mentioned as 4.1.2 and even 4.0, so it’s obvious they don’t have all the facts. One other noteworthy item is that it has an “Amazing 360-degree camera”.

You can pre-order it right now. The phone is free with a contract at £31 per month. So who’s buying?
