It is a bit of a suprise, that Google is going with LG for the next Nexus. Not a bad move at all but i would have expected another Samsung device or at least Motorola. Since Motorola is a part of Google, they are doing pretty well in design and software of their phones. Never had the chance to see the Optimus X4 in action, so i hope they ironed out the faults of the earlier Optimus line.

It would be nice if a official announcment comes very soon.

Android Lover's are so gullible. 2 days ago Jelly Bean was the best thing Google ever done. 2 days later, now you want 4.2. What does 4.2 do? Less than 10% of android user have Jelly Bean. I love android but I don't think the kool-aid. Since Google mention 4.2 does that make the S3 outdated. if you say yes, you need to back up from the cup.

No. No phone is outdated if it's hardware is capable of running the latest Android version at acceptable performance.

So no - the SGS3 is not going to be outdated at least until Android 6.0 :)

The major release will be Android 5.0 to see real changes. 4.2 will just fix a few things 4.1 has, but no dramatic changes or additions.

But regardless, let the games begin!

Well try it out, you may like it. Sounds like it is more fluid and faster than older skinned versions at least

Holy $***** my Galaxy Note doesn't even have Jelly Bean official firmware and they are coming with 4.2 I hope Samsung will put out 4.2 Firmware for all devices soon.....

That is unlikely, all OEMs stop supporting older phones.

Ok so here is a question LG Nexus seems as it will have everything mostly the same as AT&T LG Optimus G. So if Nexus comes with unlocked bootloader would it be possible to do the same to Optimus G theoretically?

You will have to try it out to be sure. Gizmotakeout will have it to try out

This is phenomenal, They are using a less tried OEM but the specs are great. Love to try out Android 4.2. Gizmotakeout shows a mid November release
