UPDATE: Added purported Nexus 4 wireless charging dock after the break.
Thanks to detailed leaks including a pre-announcement review, there really isn’t much left of the Nexus 4 to be revealed. However in the manual, it is revealed that the LG Nexus 4 will come with wireless charging capabilities. From the way it is mentioned, the wireless charger doesn’t seem to come out of the box and it is sold separately. Hit the source link to download the manual.
To recap on the specs, the Nexus 4 is a new Android 4.2 device that’s powered with a quad-core S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and comes with a 4.7″ 1280×768 HD display. It will be announced next week on 29th October together with a new Nexus 10 tablet and 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 which may also come with 3G connectivity.
On October 29th, Google is expected to introduce a couple of new devices which include the overexposed LG based Nexus 4, 32GB version of the Nexus 7 and a larger 10″ Nexus tablet device. The Nexus 10 device is manufactured by Samsung and it is rumoured to be powered by Samsung’s very own Exynos 5250 Cortex A15 based dual-core processor at 1.7GHz and 2GB of RAM.
In terms of display, the 10 incher is said to be pushing massive 2560×1600 pixels resolution. That’s 299 ppi (pixels per inch), which is the highest pixel density display for a tablet. As comparison, the iPad with Retina display pushes 2048×1536 pixels which gives 264ppi in a 9.7″ screen.
Other rumoured details include cameras for both front and back, 16GB on-board storage, micro-USB, micro-HDMI, WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and front facing dual-speakers. Just like the Nexus 4, there’s no microSD slot and it will be running on Android 4.2.
Somehow the Google Nexus naming convention is mimicking Samsung with a mixture of device generation and screen size references, which we are not a fan of. The Nexus 4 denotes 4th iteration of Nexus smart phones while the 7 & 10 denotes screen size. This would be rather confusing for consumers.
Head after the break for more images including a leaked manual.
The upcoming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III comes with extra surprises. It is reported that the new update will bring the welcomed Multi-View feature that offers split-screen functionality which was first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
This was spotted on the Japan version of Galaxy S III α which runs on the latest OS version. According to Sammobile, multi-view will be available with Android 4.1.2 update but so far no availability dates for Malaysian units. Once this is available, it will definitely boost multi-tasking and make full use of the Galaxy S III’s 4.8″ display.
