LG (06657011) and Google (GOOG) are believed to be working on a new Nexus smartphone together. Following Tuesday’s leak, xda developers forum member “4shael” posted two clearer images of the purported LG Nexus smartphone. 4shael also reports that the device has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (no microSD card slot), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,184 x 768 at 320 pixels per inch and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 4shael says the device is about as large as the Galaxy Nexus and doesn’t have LTE, but does have DC-HSDPA — though it is possible that the companies are working on several versions of the smartphone. The Verge also managed to get its hands on a Carphone Warehouse inventory listing that shows “LG Nexus4 Black” and “LG Nexus4 White” placeholders. LG’s Google Nexus smartphone is expected to be announced by the end of October.
