After the LG Nexus 4 leaked earlier today in what was reportedly a press shot of the smartphone, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has now listed the device for pre-orders on its website. The shipping details on the site mention an October 30 release date if you pre-order the device right now.
The site has the same image as seen earlier in a picture posted by Twitter user @evleaks. The specifications for the device seem to be in tandem with earlier rumoured leaks, except for one small error. While the 'Overview' tab on the site mentions that the device runs on Android 4.2, the 'Specifications' section under the 'Features' tab says Android v4.1 Jelly Bean.
The pre-order page looks quite official with complete specs listed for the smartphone. The display is said to measure 4.7 inches diagonally with a 1280 x 768 resolution. Other features include a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, NFC and an 8-megapixel camera.
Going further into the detailed specs sheet, the Nexus 4 is listed as being 9.1mm thick and is offered with 8GB of on-board storage and no microSD expansion slot. Vodafone and O2 are the carriers listed by the retailer and also mentions various deals including for free on contracts of £31 per month or more.
The Verge managed to get what looks like an inventory screenshot, possibly of Carphone Warehouse showing the LG Nexus 4 being listed for Black and White versions at a price of GBP 389.95.
Google is expected to unveil the LG Nexus 4 at its forthcoming Android event in New York on October 29. A 10-inch Nexus tablet from Samsung and a 3G Nexus 7 are also likely to be announced.
