The Verge has been sent a photo from Carphone Warehouse’s inventory which clearly shows a device going by the name “LG Nexus 4” — a seemingly obvious name given the next Nexus from LG is reported to be powered by a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz from Qualcomm.

The previously rumoured name for the device has been the LG Optimus Nexus, but that just doesn’t quite have the ring to it that Nexus 4 has.

Given that its already appearing in retailer inventories, it can only be a short amount of time before Google and LG make this thing official. There’s 3 weeks to get it out, Google. We have faith in you. Will you guys be signing up for an LG Nexus device?

Give me 32 please Googlers… LTE doesnt concern me- when i am in LTE it is at home 90% of the time so… Read more »


LG still haven’t proven themselves as decent android manufacturers, imo. i can’t see this doing as well as the previous nexus devices. they just don’t have credibility…


Has to have 32gb storage or no deal. Sick of crippled Nexus devices.
