The upcoming LG Nexus 4 should be one of the first of many Nexus-branded devices to be revealed later this year, and it has been known by its codename Mako, having popped up in the GLBenchmark scoreboard. Just how fast is the new Nexus 4 device? Fast enough to cement a top 4 finish, where it is breathing down the Pantech Vega IM-A850’s neck, while the Asus PadFone 2 and the Xiaomi MI-2 remain in front. The reason for the placing of these devices? They are all powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset that works alongside the Adreno 320 graphics processor.
It is interesting to note that the GLBenchmark website did mention Android 4.2 as the operating system of choice for the Nexus 4, and the only thing left for us to do is to wait for an official name for the Nexus 4. Considering how there aren’t too many rumors out there about the next Android version’s name, chances are it is going to remain at Jelly Bean.
