LG Nexus 4 unveiled by Carphone Warehouse
26 Oct 2012
Pre-order page accidentally goes live
It looks like the page has now been taken down, but the damage really has been done. All the details of the LG Nexus 4, simply called the Nexus 4, have been given out by a pre-order page on the Carphone Warehouse website.
An accidental upload we suspect, but one Google could perhaps have done without so close to the official launch. But on the plus side, we now know the specification, some of the tariffs and the rather imminent date of arrival.
The leaked pages confirm a 4.7-inch screen with 768x1,280-pixel resolution, along with a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera with 360-degree panoramic capture mode. It will also launch with the latest version of Android, which is 4.2, but still listed as Jelly Bean. That all tallies up with previous leaks, so we can probably also expect a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, NFC, a 2100mAh battery, 2GB RAM and 8GB of storage.
When the pages were live, Carphone Warehouse was offering deals starting at £31 per month on Orange with a 'free' phone, with delivery listed as 30 October, just a day after the Google launch event. Other networks also had deals, including O2 and Vodafone.
Not much left to say about the Nexus 4 really, except perhaps an explanation of Android 4.2. We'll hear all about that as we enter next week.
