LG and Google just officially announced the Nexus 4, despite canceling a press event in New York City on Monday. The new device runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and supports 3G/HSPA+ networks (no 4G LTE, it appears) and is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and with Krait CPUs, a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with a 1280 x 768-pixel resolution, 8GB or 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel HD front-facing camera, a 2,100mAh battery, NFC, wireless charging support and more.

“This is the first time we collaborated with LG to build a Nexus device,” said Andy Ru-bin, Senior Vice President of Mobile and Digital Content at Google. “They brought an extraordinary amount of talent to the project, and the result is a feature-packed device that feels great in your hand, and blazingly fast under the hood.”

LG and Google said the Nexus 4 will launch in the U.S., UK, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Australia on Nov. 13. It will then launch in Europe, Central/South America, Asia, CIS and the Middle East at the end of November. Neither Google nor LG said how much the smartphone will cost.
