Featured: LG Nexus 4 Launching on October 29th, Says a French Newspaper

October 10, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

You wanted some Nexus news, and we’ve got some. Actually plenty of it. The latest comes from a French newspaper, Le Figaro which is claiming that Google and LG will launch the LG Nexus 4 on October 29th. Now it’s interesting that it’s being called the Nexus 4. Now this is the fourth Nexus phone, but only the second Nexus phone to have a number in it’s name (Nexus One, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus).

This seems to lineup with what we’ve said earlier. Andy Rubin will be speaking at All Things D: Dive into Mobile which takes place on October 29th and 30th. Now it’s possible we’ll see a small sneak peak at the device and possibly Android 4.2. But I highly doubt that they will officially launch the device at that event. In the past Andy Rubin has used this conference as a place to show off the next version of Android, back in 2010 he showed off Android 3.0 – Honeycomb running on the Motorola Xoom.

How I want Google and LG to announce the LG Nexus 4 is with a huge event, preferrably here in the US (unlike the Galaxy Nexus/Ice Cream Sandwich announcement last year), with fireworks and professional speakers. I’d like to see Google and especially LG pull out all the stops to announce this device. But hey if they don’t, we’ll still have a new device to play with. It may not sell as well but it’ll be a Nexus device.

Any predictions as to when the LG Nexus 4 is going to be available from the Play Store? What about predictions on if and when CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint getting the device? Hit up the comments and let us know.
