Google’s next Nexus device to be officially called Nexus 4, packs Android 4.2


Google is set to unveil new devices next week and so far we’ve heard of the Nexus 4 (previously known at Optimus G Nexus), a huge Nexus 10 & also a 32GB version of the Nexus 7 along with a possible 3G variant. And yet we’ve seen a plethora of leaks, shots and recently unique renders.

The upcoming Nexus smartphone will be officially known as the ‘Google Nexus 4’ and is internally known as having the ‘mako’ codename judging from the GLBenchmark details, the device will feature a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels minus 84 pixels for the on-screen buttons, that gives it an effective resolution of 1196 x 768 pixels and according to the details it will pack a quad core Snapdragon S4 SoC which has a peak clock speed of 1512MHz.

Evleaks has also posted some interesting renders of what appears to be the Nexus 4 although the shots appear to be tricky due to the fact that the digital appears in the center of the status bar (Google adopting the iOS style clock?). The shot also includes a non-standard battery gage on the display, which certainly implies it might not be legitimate. The second shot doesn’t use the same on-screen image so we’re guessing that it’s some sort of fan-made render.
