LG, a company that hasn't had much of an opportunity to really shine their light in the Android world will be announcing with Google the Nexus 4, an update to the Galaxy Nexus. The Nexus One, originally made by HTC, was the first device in a long line where Google got to show their operating system the way they expected it to work. Samsung partnered with Google for the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus which highlighted Gingerbread (2.3) and Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) & Jelly Bean (4.1) respectively. LG hasn't gotten the attention that most other manufacturers have, but their Nexus 4 should give them the spotlight. Some of the features include:
- 1.5GHz Quad-core Snapdragon processor
- 4.7" 1280 x 768 screen
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB of internal storage
- 8-megapixel rear camera
- 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
- 2100mAh battery.
Samsung has reportedly been working with Google to create the Nexus 10, a 10" tablet to compete with the iPad and to be a larger, more powerful Nexus 7. This tablet is expected to have a higher resolution that Apple's iPad that's 300 PPI. According to The Next Web.
The Nexus 7 will be getting a little less attention. It will be receiving a 32GB variation and 3G variations. The 32GB variation has been speculated for quite awhile due to leaks from retailers (such as Staples recent "release".)
Google's October 29th announcement will be something really worth looking forward to. While everything right now is speculative, it is sure to be a great event.
