Brazilian Nexus 4 shipments pop up with Android 4.2.2


After Google deleted the Android 4.1.2 image from its servers, something was clearly brewing, and it didn't take long before a Brazilian Nexus 4 emerged with an arm shot of a brand new 4.2.2 potion.

Nothing is known yet about the minor Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, if it is legit at all on this picture, but the Nexus 4 is apparently starting to get produced in LG's phone factory in Taubaté, Brazil today, before heading to carriers later in the month, and the first batch of one thousand is reportedly being loaded with Android 4.2.2 from the box, so it's a matter of time we get a rundown on the improvements.

Everything points that Google is indeed releasing an update to the latest and greatest, as running on the Nexus 4, and we are waiting for an update on what fixes and goodies it has included in it eventually.

best to wait till we either find out if 4.22 is a worthwhile update or 4.3 comes out. Many peeps had issues with 4.2

And the other answer is "probably never". lol.

I'm hoping it has bluetooth fixed. I've been running 4.1.2 on my N7 because BT is unusable with streaming media (i.e. Netflix) on 4.2 and 4.2.1.

1,000 phones?! Are they f*cking kidding?! At that production rate, it will be next year before the demand for the N4 is met (after the N5 has gone through a similar experience of having orders pulled from the shopping cart on release day).

It said first *batch* of one thousand, not first *phone* out of one thousand. Meaning there are one thousand batches, and each batch has an undefined number of units. Chill out.

Short answer - not likely anytime soon. I hope you are patient.

I am but my patience is starting to wear thin. I mean i got a 5-6 week estimate so theres a couple of days left, but so many people who ordered before me havent received theirs, so i doubt it will be here in the time they gave.

What sucks here in brazil is the phone price.
