The Nexus 4 first made its appearance clothed in white over at Carphone Warehouse, where it then promptly disappeared. Now it has made its appearance once again, this time at TalkTalk, a UK-based telecommunications company. The device is currently only available for pre-order, but is expected to have stock in on December 13th, which means shipping will probably be early enough to get it in time for Christmas.
The handset is available in three plans. The £30 plan offers 100 mins, 250 texts, and 200MB of data. The “medium” plan is priced at £35 and offers 300 mins, 3000 texts, and 1GB of data. The “Large” plan is priced at £45 per month, and comes with 1000 minutes, 3000 texts, and 4GB of data. All three plans require a two-year contract.
The Nexus 4 has a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768. Inside you’ll find a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of internal memory; there’s no microSD expansion slot, sadly. Around back there’s an 8-megapixel camera, which is about the resolution of high-end smartphones. The handset runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2.
The phone is rated for up to 390 hours of standby time, and up to 15 hours of talk time. Connectivity includes 3G, GPS, and Bluetooth, as well as NFC and quad-band. The Nexus 4 boasts a variety of camera-related features, including image stabilizer, an LED flash, HD recording, panoramic shot, and face detection.
