It's not uncommon to see new smartphones and other gadgets tipped from simple text listings on inventory systems at various electronics retailers. Today a tip on a black and a white version of the LG Nexus 4 has surfaced from an inventory screen at UK mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse. Unfortunately, the only details tipped by the inventory listings are the two color options.
There have been several rumors floating around about a new LG Nexus device coming to market. However, in those previous rumors the Nexus 4 moniker wasn't associated with the device. We assume that the "4" in the product name is an indication of the screen size along the lines of the Nexus 7.
The last time we talked about the new Nexus smartphone rumor was at the beginning of the month. At the time, the new smartphone was tipped for sometime within the next few months. Indications are that the Nexus 4 will be based on the Optimus G.
Rumored specifications for the Optimus G have pointed to a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 768. The device is also rumored to use a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and run Android Jelly Bean. We will certainly be on the lookout for more details on the Nexus 4 in the days and weeks ahead.
