Google Nexus 4

The Google Nexus 4 is a smartphone device developed by Google and LG that was released in November 2012. The Google Nexus 4 can be purchased directly from Google Play with no carrier commitment or contract, although shortages made the smartphone difficult to obtain in the period following its initial release.

The Google Nexus 4 runs version 4.2 ( Jelly Bean ) of the Android mobile operating system and features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera with 1080p video camera support, wireless charging capabilities and built-in Android Beam near-field communication (NFC), 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, although it does currently lack support for 4G LTE.

The Nexus 4 offers a 4.7-inch, 320 pixels-per-inch display with 1280 by 768 resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Pricing for the Nexus 4 starts at $299, and it competes with smartphones like the Apple iPhone as well as fellow Google-powered devices like the Samsung Galaxy S III and Microsoft Windows Phone 8-powered smartphones. Apps for the Google Nexus 4 are available via the Google Play app store.
