LG Nexus 4 is one of the most popular smartphones of 2012 evident with the limited supply and high price of the device.
Google is currently struggling to meet demand for its recently-announced Nexus 4 smartphone. Manufactured by LG, the device's low price means it has seen extremely high demand, and Google has had issues keeping the phone in stock.
The Google-LG Nexus 4 boasts a 4.7 inch screen display with 1280x768 resolution, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 8 MP camera and 2100 mAh battery.
The new Google-LG smartphone will run with the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which equipped the device with new features upgrade such as better camera options and controls. This has become the selling point of the device.
Below are the three features that you may not know your LG Nexus 4 have.
- Google+ storage - Photos can take a lot of storage space in your precious LG Nexus 4 with very limited internal storage. However, you can upload the photos you took in your Google+ account. This is also a good feature in the event that you lose your LG Nexus 4.
- PhotoSphere - The PhotoSphere is the update that Jelly Bean 4.2 brings with it 360 degree photos. LG Nexus 4 already enabled users to take panoramic photos. However, PhotoSphere takes this a step further and you can take photos of what is above and below you making sure you do not miss anything.
- Gesture typing - This is another feature unique to Jelly Bean 4.2 update and it brings a new keyboard in the style of the Swype keyboard. This feature allows you slide over the keyboard when typing the words. If you want to enable it, just go into settings and then choose Enable Gesture Typing on your LG Nexus 4.
On the other hand, some reports said that search engine giant Google is already working on the successor of the popular LG Nexus 4.
Google has been releasing Nexus smartphones and tablets over the years. Since it was launched, the Nexus line has included handsets from HTC, Samsung, and LG. However, it seems Google may be using the recently-acquired Motorola for its next phone.
Wall Street Journal quoted unnamed sources that a new device is on its way from Google-owned Motorola. These people say Motorola engineers are hard at work on a "sophisticated" handset codenamed 'X phone.' However, it is still unsure whether the device will be a Nexus-brand phone.
