Google To Kill Nexus 4 LTE?

How about a little bit of speculation to wind down the work week, and what could be more juicy than to hear that Google has withdrawn a number of Nexus 4 files from its Google Developers archives on the sly, where among them include the smartphone’s factory image as well as the handset’s associated binaries. There has been no formal or official notification or announcement from Google concerning the change, although rumors have been flying around thick and fast – touting that this is but the first salvo in an attempt to prevent users from accessing the handset’s hidden LTE features.

So far, it has been uncovered that the Google Nexus 4 can activate its dormant LTE radio to have it play nice with carriers that offer the 1700MHz LTE service. That means our neighbors in the Great White North would be able to enjoy this feature, but LG and Google are in a tight spot considering that the Nexus 4 does not come with regulatory approval for LTE operation on the band. Well, time will reveal all things, and perhaps a new range of Nexus 4 files will show up in due time.
