Google’s Nexus 4 has become one of the most popular smartphones on the market (if you can get hold of one) thanks largely to its big 4.7-inch screen, fast quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064 processor and it’s comparatively low price tag.
However, two features that are commonly mentioned as being missing are 4G/LTE network connectivity and greater internal storage.
Ubergizmo is reporting that this situation looks set to change come this May, when Google is expected to announce a 32GB/LTE version of the Nexus 4 and its yearly Google I/O conference. According to the report, no other features in the phone will change, except for these two options. Although, there is the possibility of Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) making an appearance, but it’s not known whether the new Nexus 4 update will include this or not.
Google launched the LG-manufactured Nexus 4 at the end of 2012 and due to demand, was immediately plagued by shortages, particularly in Australia early on, before the phone went on sale with third-party retailers.
The Nexus 4 features a 1280×720-pixel I-PS (in-plane switching) display panel, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage, in addition to the quad-core Qualcomm processor. The current model is selling in Australia for approximately $499 at retail stores.
