For quite sometime now Google has been expected to unveiled LG Nexus 4. The announcement of this product was supposed to be made at a special Google event which was cancelled due to hurricane Sandy. However mother nature has not deterred Google from making its announcements. The internet search giant has finally announced LG Nexus 4 specifications and features. This happens to be the fourth device that Google has added to its Nexus lineup of smartphones.
In recent months we have heard a lot of rumors regarding LG Nexus 4. We have also seen a number of leaked photos, and the device has also been leaked out recently in a hands on video. Nevertheless the device does not fail to impress and after being officially unveiled by Apple, we can now gawk on the wonder that is LG Nexus 4.
LG Nexus 4 Specifications And Features:
This device, born out of the union between LG and Google, is one powerful machine. Google states that LG Nexus 4 houses the most powerful smartphone processor, unrivaled by any other processor out there. It touts the fierce Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor with an impressive clock speed of 1.5GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM. Providing power to this power-hungry setup is a 2,100 mAh battery, big enough for a talk time of 10 hours. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and NFC. There’s no support for LTE, for carrier dependent HSPA+, there is. It also has support for wireless charging.
There are some Android fans who are suckers for Samsung’s Super AMOLED HD displays, while others prefer devices with IPS LCD display panels. The LG Nexus 4 has a 4.7 inch IPS LCD display with an eye popping resolution of 1280×768 which equals to 320 pixels per square inch to 16:10 ratio. You’ll feel a noticeable difference if you’re switching from Super AMOLED HD to an IPS display panel because the latter is devoid of the grainy look seen in the former. The screen is curved at the edges which makes swiping gestures a lot easier.
LG Nexus 4 has an 8 megapixel back camera as well as a 1.3 megapixel front camera. The camera has been engineered for providing a better result in conditions where there is low light. LG Nexus 4 has a unique feature, it can take 360° panoramic photos, something which no other smartphone on the market can do right now.
