The rumors were spot on. LG and Google has just announced the Nexus 4, Google’s newest addition to its Nexus line-up. Touted by LG as the “best of Google in the palm of your hand,” the Nexus 4 features a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with a 1280 x 768 resolution and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Other noteworthy features of the device include 2GB of RAM, up to 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel HD front-facing camera, NFC capabilities, a 2100mAh Li-Polymer battery, and Android 4.2 a.k.a. Jelly Bean.

The Nexus 4 will be available via Google Play next month, particularly on the 13th of November, in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, France, Spain, and Australia. Pricing starts at $299 for the 8GB model and $349 for the 16GB variant. Google says that the 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199 together with a 2-year contract. “This is the first time we collaborated with LG to build a Nexus device,” said Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile and Digital Content at Google. “They brought an extraordinary amount of talent to the project, and the result is a feature-packed device that feels great in your hand, and blazingly fast under the hood.”

Nexus 4 is our latest smartphone, developed together with LG. It has a quad-core processor which means it’s super fast, a crisp 4.7″ (320 ppi) display that’s perfect for looking at photos and watching YouTube, and with wireless charging you just set the phone down on a charging surface to power it up, no wires needed. While Nexus 4 is incredibly powerful under the hood, it also features the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2—the simplest and smartest version of Android yet.
