Considering the device isn’t even officially acknowledged yet, there’s a surprising amount of information available about the LG Nexus 4.

The latest leaks of the upcoming Nexus 4 smartphone, indicate that the device will indeed launch with a new version of Android, 4.2, but will still be called Jelly Bean. Well, Jelly Bean Maintenance Release 1.

There is only one precedent for this in the Android world. The Motorola Droid was released in late 2009 with Android 2.0 Eclair, and when the Nexus One debuted a few months later it also ran Eclair, albeit with a few updates in Android 2.1. Google could be holding off launching a new version of Android — Key Lime Pie — because Jelly Bean hasn’t proliferated to enough devices yet, and due to its low market share very few users have been able to take advantage of its features.

Android 4.2 will look and feel identical to Android 4.1, but will come with a number of security enhancements and will coincide with a new version of the Gmail app. It may also have an updated notification bar with faster access to quick settings, but that remains to be seen.

The rest of the specs of the LG Nexus 4, as provided by the reliable evleaks, have already been confirmed: 4.7-inch 1280×768 True IPS display, a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC, 2GB RAM, 8/16GB internal storage, 8MP camera/2MP front camera, 2100mAh non-removable battery, 9.1mm thick, 139g. For comparison, the Galaxy Nexus is 8.9mm thick and 135g.

So, presumably the LG Nexus 4 will be announced at a Google event on October 29th.

    @igyaan , If I buy this phone with the help of a friend in USA and use it here in India (as it comes unlocked which is commendable), will I get future updates and all that support OTA?? I do not mean warranty and stuff, just the upgradations and all support OTA thru WIFI and also can I just run 2g data and use our Indian sized SIM(most of USA based phones are manufactured for the miniature SIMs, as I noticed on my friend’s mobile)???
    I was appalled to notice the prices in USA for this unlocked device as it comes arnd 19k for 16gb variant and I was in fact planning to buy A110 canvas2 by micromax, I can stretch my budget  effortlessly to buy this amazing specs device.
