Benchmark score shows upcoming Nexus 4 LTE with Android 4.3

After we had a Google X phone benchmark leak only to be sadly disappointed that it won't see the light of day at Google I/O, now we have a sort of confirmation that its place might indeed be taken by an upgraded Google Nexus 4 LTE, running Android 4.3...

That's awesome! I wonder if they'll recertify existing Nexus 4's to take full adavantage of it's AWS LTE ability, Official LTE support would be awesome for us T-Mobile USA users(even tho I've also just bought an htc One LTE already). I keep all my phones and keep them updated/still use them.

Anyway I hope for the Nexus fans that the Nexus 4 LTE will have a 32GB variant, I can't bare to imagine how it feels to be limited to just 16GB for Apps, Games, Music, Documents and ROMs.

Feels good. I don't carry bucket loads of content with me, a few hundred songs, a thousand books, a few games and some apps is more than enough.

I agree 16GB isn't incredibly huge, but after owner 4 different 16GB devices, I've found that all that space that I was disappointed I didn't have, I actually didn't really need. I know a lot of who people who, over time, flood their device with apps that they no longer either use or need.

I initially wasn't a fan of cloud storage, but Dropbox changed all of that.. With 50GB of space, I can save & stream movies, music, pictures & important files, leaving my internal storage open for games & files I need access to when internet access is either slow or unavailable. Not to mention I'm sure most people have either lost, broke or had a reset their device at some given time, in which all your data saved locally was history. I don't think people give cloud storage enough credit at times.. With all the different viable options available on Android, there's a solution for most storage needs at little to no cost.

For those who currently own a Nexus 4, I can't really see "upgrading" to this unless you live in a solid & consistent LTE market where you absolutely need the fastest internet available & the extra internal storage. I'm sure we're bound to see a Nexus 5/Moto X phone within the next 4-5 months that will bring fresh specs and a new design.

I love my Nexus 4 to death, but I can't justify spending $350-$400 on the same device for an additional 5-12MB/down.

If this benchmark was true, I wonder what else would be different about the phone other than LTE. The processor frequency looks like that of the old S4 Pro processor. That would be embarrassing if they passed off last year's hardware as this year's flagship.

It's not really this year's flagship... Just an updated LTE offering. Who knows, maybe for those people in an LTE covered area that wanted a Nexus 4, but passed on it previously because it wasn't compatible with their data plan?

The next Nexus probably won't be out until around October, or at least some time frame similar to when the Nexus 4 came out last year.
