LG Nexus 4 press render leaks out: is it real?
posted by Victor H. / Oct 24, 2012, 9:42 AM
And now they are out. Leaked on Twitter, you can see what is very likely to resemble the final LG Nexus 4 in its full glory.
On the back, the matrix-like Crystal Reflection pattern proudly holds the Nexus name in huge letters. The front of the device remains buttonless like the Galaxy Nexus, and if you could only see only its anterior side you could easily mistake it for Samsung’s last year’s Nexus. They are that similar.
On the sides we have the volume rocker, lock key and a micro SIM card holder.
Not much changed, right? If we had to dig a bit deeper for the tiniest of changes, we’d have to point out that the battery indicator is now also showing percentage points for how much charge you have left. The clock is also in the center of the notification bar. Nice little touches, if true.
But there are also two supposedly weather indicators showing 92 (probably degrees) and that looks very, very suspicious. The new positions of the clock and the battery indicator might be nice, but we're not sure that they are real. So is this the real image? We'd say not likely.
Feel free to look at the image below from every angle and don’t hesitate to hit us with your thoughts about it in the comments below.

Looks pretty sharp, but being LG makes me hesitant

LG is not good at sofware, but this phone software is taken care of by Google. But I have reservation about the screen, Even if it's as good as Optimus G it's still worse than One X.

why is it worse than the One X, it is S-LCD 2 after all which is the same as One X and I can only wish that when they make the official announcement they say its an S-LCD 3 panel...that would be awesome

For me, the only questions that remains are: "This phone will be sold in my country?" If yes "When?" and "How much?" If the answer for the first question is "No", then the second question will be: "Why God, Why?!?!?!"

Lmao .. same here. But the other day I read that LG would launch it in India by end of Nov. only thing concerns me is How Much ? if its arround $450 (INR 24000 approx.) then I would surely get it. But if its over $500 then I might have to wait untill next NeXus.

I'm from Brazil. LG usually launch all the phones here. But we have some problems with the "Nexus" branding (legal rights from other company). The only Nexus that came officially here, was the Galaxy Nexus, but renamed to Galaxy X.

I think it is fake. It shouldn't have "Nexus" written on the back. It should be Google or the Nexus Colorful Symbol.

the Nexus 7 had it. it might be Google trying to popularize the Nexus name. it seems very legit. remember when the Nexus 7 press renders leak out to prior to the announcement? after all the details look precise especially the crystal back.

I think it seems legit. You have to remember though this is one render out of how many? For all we know this could be the first or even the 100th. I like the look of this one. but i really wish the rumor about there being multiple nexus devices would be true.

I hope it's real, love the look to the back. Looks very similar to my GNex, wondering if it will fit in my car dock. Never thought I'd be interested in a LG phone but this one has my attention right now, pending what comes out on the 29th. Left notification could be any number of apps that have alerts. I wouldn't put too much stock in that, especially when screen images are commonly simulated.

I've never had an LG phone before. To be honest LG have never entered my mind when looking for a new phone but after seeing the reviews of the Optimus G and this being official unveiled next week I think LG are a definite contender for my next phone.

You guys are being a bit too harsh on LG. Let the phone come out, then we'll judge. Do you forget 10 years ago Apple was no where as powerful as it is today? Neither was Samsung. People used to make fun of the Korean market. Now they are competing equally, if not beating the other markets, especially the Japanese. Remember those Kia's 10 years ago? Look at the Optima now. Enough said.

you guys are silly.. 1) its a render, not an actual photo. 2) the "2 weather icons". This isnt iOS guys. If he has more than one app running that tracks weather (Google Now and Beautiful Widgets for example), it is possible to have more than one alert. It could also just be a silly photoshop mistake. Chill out. I dunno, I think it makes the phone look nicer than it has since all the leaks started coming out... less... ugly. lol. It's my prime phone replacement choice at the moment, as long as reviews dont come out trashing it.
