Google Nexus 4 Coming in Novmember, $299 Unlocked

The Google Nexus 4 by LG is now live on Google Play. Google was supposed to unveil the Nexus 4 at a press event in New York today, but had to cancel due to Hurricane Sandy.┬áThe unlocked prices are $299 for the 8GB model and $349 for the 16GB model. Google’s upcoming flagship phone boasts:

  • 4.7-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 2 screen
  • 1,280 x 768 resolution (320 ppi)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 2,100 mAh battery capable of wireless charging
  • Eight-megapixel rear camera
  • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
  • Android 4.2

Due to Google’s issues with CDMA/LTE carriers, the Nexus 4 will only be available as a GSM/HSPA+ model, initially.

Early hands-on reports claim that the screen is competitive with the iPhone 5’s and that the camera is greatly improved over the one in last year’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

I’m a little bit split on this phone. It sounds great on paper and I love what I’m hearing about the screen. While I’m disappointed that an LTE model won’t be available, I understand that carriers like Verizon are complete ass-hats when it comes to timely updates; Google wants to keep the Nexus experience as pure as possible by providing updates directly to Nexus customers. 16GB of storage also seems low, but so much is moving to the cloud and $349 for an unlocked 16GB phone is a pretty sweet deal. None of those deliberations matter though; as a tech nerd, of course I want a Nexus 4!

How about you? Any of you guys and dolls interested in the Google Nexus 4?

  1. I would consider one of these, after I saved up for a little bit and found some way to convince my wife to let me get one of these without selling my Razr Maxx, if they were available for Verizon. I’ve wanted to use an actual Nexus phone for a while now, and there seem to be some cool features to this one. Wireless charging would be nice too, but not necessary. I was a little disheartened to still see a rather small battery on the phone, but everything else looks like it would be cool to use. The other thing that looked like a great feature was the personal accounts on tablets. That would be even nicer if someday I could convince my wife to switch from apple to android and we had a tablet. I would love to get a Nexus 7 personally, but I already have my Kindle Fire and will probably get my wife a paperwhite this year still, and I’ve been told repeatedly that I have no need for another tablet when I have my kindle.

  2. This had nothing to do with this article but i have to ask. How do the article recommendations come about at the bottom?? How do they know my secret crush on heidi klum?? And how would love to read about her unusual marriage to seal!

  3. Has anyone ever bought anything from DailySteals website?

    They have the Galaxy Note 2 for $580 currently. I don’t want to get scammed but I sure would like to have an unlocked Note 2 for $100 what Amazon sells it for (also keep me out of signing a new 2 year)

  4. I was until I read that Lousy Garbage was making the phone. I remember a certain flagship phone that I still own that was beastly on paper and is no longer supported by LG. I will never but another LG product for the rest of my life. They lost me as a customer.
