LG Nexus 4 pictured from every angle in new leaked photos

LG's first Nexus device has been well and truly exposed online, click through to examine this glitzy gadget up close.

LG's first Nexus phone has been spied again, this time getting photographed from every conceivable angle, and even having its 8-megapixel camera tested.

Russian-language site tech.onliner.by is to thank for this clear glimpse at the next Nexus, having obtained and photographed the yet-to-be-confirmed gadget in all manner of poses (including one next to a stuffed parrot, for some reason), revealing a smart phone with rounded edges and a sparkly, sequin-effect rump. Here's a snap of it next to the iPhone 5.

The glitzy gadget is reckoned to sport a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm chip, backed up by a hearty 2GB of RAM. The 4.7-inch display is expected to have a 768x1,280 pixel resolution.

There's 8GB of on-board storage, which doesn't sound like very much when you consider the phone is rumoured to lack a microSD card slot. We'll have to wait and see.

The device in these photos is running Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 , though by the time this disco-ball device goes on sale, reports suggest it'll be powered by Android 4.2.

The site even put together a 360-degree view of the Nexus 4, which lets you click and drag to inspect every nook and cranny of the upcoming phone. They've tested the camera too -- below is snap taken with the phone's 8-megapixel camera, check out the original story for a full-size version.

It seems that LG's Nexus has few secrets left to surrender, though we don't yet have much information on its name. It's tipped to get an official airing in late October , so we should find out more in a few weeks. I think the phone looks good, and bleeding-edge Android is always worth getting excited about -- but what are your views? Tell me what you reckon in the comments or on our Facebook wall.
