Support manuals for the LG E960 have emerged on the company’s Australian and UK websites, ultimately confirming the ubiquitous Nexus 4 moniker. The documentation suggests that the device will be available in both 8GB and 16GB versions. As we have come to expect with Nexus-branded devices, the handset will not support expandable storage via MicroSD. According to the manual, the device will also include an induction coil to enable wireless charging by default, something that users have been interested in for what seems like forever.
Unfortunately, it looks as though we’ll have to wait indefinitely for an official announcement, considering the cancellation of Google’s Nexus event on Monday. You know what they say–safety before fun, right?
As we get closer and closer to the inevitable announcement of Google’s newest addition to the Nexus family, we now see yet another leaked photo of the Nexus 4 (or Optimus Nexus, whatever you prefer). Belerusian website Onliner.by obtained some sweet photos of the LG E960. As you can see off the bat, the device seems to feature a special coating and the traditional Google & LG logos on the back, while the front is all screen, nearly identical to the existing Galaxy Nexus smartphone. All in all, these photos seem to line up with the previous shots that we’ve seen before.
In addition to the photos that have surfaced, the website also takes some time to confirm some specs that were previously rumored to be featured in the smartphone. As of now, Onliner.by highlights the newest upcoming Nexus will feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 gigs of RAM, a 1280×768 HD display, 8MP rear camera and 8GB of on-board storage. Leave it to the Nexus line to stay consistent with featuring the best features and cutting edge technology.
In case you’ve forgotten, the device is expected to be announced at the end of the month. In the meantime, we’re sure you’re all itching to get more peeks of the upcoming device, so hit the break for all the photos you can handle.
