We spotted the Google Nexus 4 LTE today in Antutu benchmark listings. As you can see in the above image, the phone is running on Android 4.3 – the same Android version, which was spotted recently in server-logs.
Android 4.3 is expected to be announced at Google I/O 2013 as a mild upgrade to Android 4.2. So, it makes sense for Google to pre-load it on Nexus 4 LTE, if the LTE version is indeed going to become official at Google I/O.
To remind you, Google I/O is beginning on May 15, and there is a keynote speech on the same day and most likely, we will see Nexus 4 LTE being revealed in that keynote.
It would be interesting to see which 4G LTE networks are supported by Nexus 4 LTE and whether Google has done any carrier tie-ups.
To remind you, LG Nexus 4 was originally launched last year with only HSPA+ support. The phone packs a 4.7-inch HD display and is powered by 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The phone also comes with 8MP rear camera, front camera, 2GB of RAM and 8/16 GB of internal storage. Some previous rumours have suggested that the Nexus 4 LTE version will have 32GB of internal storage instead of a maximum 16GB in HSPA+ version.
