LG confirms they're releasing a Nexus device

Earlier this morning, a ton of details leaked about Google's upcoming Android event on October 29, including some details about LG's rumored Nexus 4 device. However, it turns out that LG actually confirmed today that a Nexus device from the company would indeed be announced on October 29, according to an LG exec.

We were pretty confident to begin with that LG was going to be the manufacturer that would make the next Nexus handset, and we heard over a week ago that the LG Nexus 4 was going to be announced on the 29th, so we're not too surprised by that fact. However, we are surprised that we've heard word from an LG head about the matter.

LG's Mobile Product Planning head Amit Gujral said that "Google will unveil the LG Nexus on October 29 and the phone will be available in the Indian markets by the end of November." He doesn't reveal the actual name of the device (we're guessing the LG Nexus won't be the final name), so the Nexus 4 is still merely just a working name for now until we actually see it announced come next week.

The Nexus 4 will be based on LG's Optimus G, which features a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core chip, along with a hardy 2GB of RAM. It also have a 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ 1280x768 LCD screen.
