Nexus 4 images leaked: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean among specs

Members of XDA Developers Forum were allegedly able to take a look at Nexus 4 and its specs. The smartphone was presented during Thailand Mobile Expo 2013 event. What one of the members of the famed forum was able to see at once was what the most probable OS of this model would be: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

This comes as great news if it’s eventually confirmed by the manufacturer. Especially since Google’s I/O event said no word about the Android 4.3. The pics that were posted by “challeen”, one of the members who had a look at the Nexus 4, and there’s even a video of the smartphone to go along the video.

As you can see from the photos that the forum member posted online, the Nexus 4 seems to sport a new UI for its camera (besides the operating system, of course). This interface is stock-full with many new features and options. There looks to be, for instance, new icons for rotation/contrast/HDR, an improved activation alert and a see-through action zone. The page for Settings does not seem to have been made more exciting, but that shouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.Nexus-4-leaked

A second member of the XDA Developers Forum, nicknamed “innocent36”, also snapped pics of the Nexus 4 during the same event. In particular he looked at the smartphone’s supposedly new Settings Menu.


According to him, the pre-release name for the handset looks to be JWR45B. The fact that there appears to be an m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.74 baseband string could indicate that the smartphone would work well with GSM networks. The handset also seems to have received an improved egg animatio for the JB operating system.

The fact that the Nexus 4 has been leaked may or may not convince people about the existence of this smartphone. As usual, we recommend you to take everything with a suspicious look first and foremost. Every one of us should wait for Google to confirm this. The only thing that’s known about a new Android version comes from them. The company has said that this version is currently tested on several phones. Who knows, maybe we’ll see the latest Android on June 10. When Apple will show their very own iOS 7.
