UK retailer leaks LG’s Google Nexus 4 smartphone details

Website featured a pre-order page for the new smartphone

By CBR Staff Writer

UK-based retailer website Carphone Warehouse has revealed the details of yet to be released LG’s Google-branded Nexus 4 smartphone.

According to reports, the website featured a pre-order page for the new smartphone and was removed later.

BBC quoted Carphone Warehouse statement, which said : "Unfortunately a pre-order page for a new handset that we plan to range went live prematurely. We’ve now rectified this and apologise for any confusion caused."

The move came to light prior to a press event in New York on 29 October 2012 which Google had revealed would be an Android-themed.

The erased webpage detailed that the Android-powered smartphone featured a 4.7in display, with a resolution of 320 pixels per inch, Gorilla Glass 2, 8-megapixel camera, and said it will run on Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon processor.

Features roughly depict that the smartphone will be of the same size as Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and HTC One X handsets.
