Video of LG Nexus 4 reveals quick notifications

LG Sweden apparently got a bit trigger happy earlier today, posting a video showing off their new, shiny Nexus 4. I think it looks a lot nicer in the video than it has in the renders leaked previously, and the user is kind enough to show off a little of Android 4.2. It looks like they’ve put an extra column of icons in the application drawer, and they’ve given the old analogue clock a bit of a makeover. You also get to see the new quick notifications in action, and thankfully Google abandoned the double-swipe on the status bar to activate them in favour of a neat button in the top-right of the screen.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

    I wonder what the rules are for the extra column of apps? Probably something along the lines of a minimum 4.3″ + HD screen? Makes sense in one way because the dock fits five icons, but then again it doesn’t make sense because the home screens only fit four wide. Weird.

    Fail at reporting…. The two finger swipe is still there. One finger drag down brings the standard menu, two fingers is a shortcut into the quick settings.

    Check out the verge video they have, it’s a great 15 min video that shows of a few features like the lock screen widgets. Finally the calendar can be on the lock screen! And quick unlock shortcuts work when using a lock code now

    i feel stupid buying the S3 when this is a much cheaper phone with similar specs. just price wise, $350 compared to $700 for brand new at the time of release is ridiculous.

      Sell it and buy this. im sure you can get more than $400 fot it still

  • Not real happy. Last week sold my galaxy nexus and got the RAZR hd. Wish I had waited now.
