Whoops! Looks like UK phone carrier Carphone Warehouse might have some explaining to do. Earlier this morning the site accidentally revealed Google’s upcoming next generation Nexus phone, which will forever forth be known as the “Nexus 4″. It’s indeed being produced by LG, as we expected, and carries a massive 4.7″ display with an impressive 1280 x 768 resolution. It’ll come with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, an 8MP rear shooter, NFC, and a mere 8GB of onboard storage (which is, of course, expandable via a MicroSD card slot).
One of the most interesting things here is this is also our first official look at the new version of the Android operating system, Android 4.2. 4.2 will carry Android 4.1′s “Jellybean” codename and will feature what Google is calling “Gesture Typing” – which sounds an awful lot like a system similar to Swype.
Google is expected to officially unveil the Nexus 4 at their “The playground is open.” event on October 29th.
