The EXIF data shows the Nexus 4 name

EXIF data taken from photographs found on Picasa show that the LG E960 will be known as the LG Nexus 4. This is not terribly surprising since we you showed you a screenshot of Carphone Warehouse's inventory page which showed the LG Nexus 4 name. Additionally, French media outlet Le Figaro also called the device by the same name.

EXIF data can be faked which might have you looking at the pictures somewhat skeptically. Even the name of the photographer given credit for the photographs, who in this case is Google software engineer Mehul Agarwal, can be faked in order to mislead the public. Still, where there is smoke there is fire and at this point we can feel confident that the LG E960 will be known as the LG Nexus 4. Now it's just a matter of having the device officially introduced by the Korean manufacturer.

I don't care if LG made this device. A lot of you are too harsh on LG to begin with. Lets face it, lately LG's top of the line and upper echelon of the mid range hardware has been great. LG UI has improved too. But what makes this device a mus have is its pure android experience.... But I think I'ma ctually overwhelmed by this device. I was not expecting a Nexus by LG at all. Yo nesicito uno....

I have had an Optimus 2X while my sister had an Galaxy S2, while the LG sucks on software it never had a hardware problem, my sister's S2 has a gap between the glass and the bezel and the glass is unglueing itself..

Umm it's a NEXUS.... N E X U S, which means we will NOT get LG's software but GOOGLE's, and again if it's not clear enough yet, it's a N E X U S, so we will get a locked but EASY TO UNLOCK through fastboot boot loader like we always have in the past. Basically LG's past history does NOT apply to this phone, they can make good hardware, they have proven that, AND they CANNOT screw it up with bad software and slow updates like the have in the past

"LG Nexus 4" means that there will be only one nexus phone this year?

The rumors only said there would be multiple Nexus devices from multiple manufacturers, not multiple phones. We'll have the Asus Nexus 7, the LG Nexus 4, and soon a Samsung Nexus 10. All that's left would be a Nexus 5 (which may or may not be coming).

I also can't imagine Google releasing a 8 GB version only, that would be a joke.

There IS a 16GB version; it's just $50 more than the 8GB version without a T-Mobile contract (and $100 less with one): https://play.google.com/store/devices/details?id=nexus_4_16gb

Zahrawy it will be the 4th Nexus. There was HTC Nexus One, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Nexus....and now this LG.

Technically, it's the 5th Nexus device. You left out the Asus Nexus 7. But, it is the 4th Nexus phone.

Well, technically the Nexus 4 has a 4 (well, really, 4.7) inch screen, which could also be part of it...
