In addition to Nexus 10 tablet, Google has announced LG Nexus 4 Phone, the latest phone in its Nexus line of flagship Android devices. Among the notable features, Nexus 4 packs the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has wireless charging capabilities. The smartphone has built-in compatibility with Google’s latest accessory, the Wireless Charging Orb - an inductive charging dock. The timing of the announcement of LG Nexus 4 seems to be designed to deliberately overshadow the Windows 8 phone event staged by Microsoft.
Nexus 4 is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor which Google claims is the fastest on the smartphone market. The 320 ppi IPS+ LCD screen makes it a competitive arch-rival with the iPhone’s 326 ppi Retina Display. Here’s the full specification of the smartphone.
