The three devices that Google has released more or less corroborate most of the rumors that had been circulated about them. Below, you’ll get a fleeting glimpse at the features of each of these.
LG’s Nexus 4 smartphone
Until now, Google has been working closely with both Samsung and HTC in creating its Nexus smartphones. But there’s a new kid on the block. LG has been able to sneak into Google’s good books and the new Nexus 4 smartphone has been made by the company.
Nexus 4 packs a 4.7-inch display which has a rather impressive resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels. The smartphone is juiced up with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core CPU and comes with a number of really cool features such as wireless charging, NFC support, an impressive 8-megapixel rear camera and 2GB of RAM.
The new smartphone will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box and has a unique new feature called Photo Sphere with the help of which, users will be able to 360-degree panoramic shots. It will be available for a price of $300 for the 8GB version or $350 for a 16 GB version. If you are planning to lay your hands on it, you will have to wait till Nov. 13 which is when it will hit the shelves.
New Nexus 10 tablet
Google has garnered great success in the mini tablet market with its Nexus 7 tablet. Until now, the company has been shying away from entering the mainstream tablet market and compete against the likes of Apple. However, it has now finally entered the arena with its own Nexus 10 tablet.
The tablet has been created in collaboration with Samsung and boasts a stunning display which has a 2560 x 1600 resolution, the highest that any tablet in the market has right now. Glossed over 10 inches, the display is enough to win many hearts.
It packs a dual-core processor to juice it up and 2 GB of RAM together with an 8-megapixel rear camera and two front-facing stereo speakers, which can make listening to music on it a joyful experience.
The Nexus 10 tablet will also become available on Nov. 13 and will be carrying a price of $400 for the 16 GB version and $500 for the 32 GB version.
32 GB and HSPA+ versions of Nexus 7:
Google’s Nexus 7 tablet is already the sweetheart of the mini tablet arena. Now, Google has further sweetened the deal. The company has abandoned the 8GB version of Nexus 7 altogether with the price of the 16GB version slashed from $250 to $200.
The 32GB version is now being offered for $250 and the best part is that by adding a little more to it, you can have an HSPA+ equipped 32 GB Nexus 7 for a mere $300. Naturally, with the increased storage and cellular connectivity, Nexus 7 is probably one of the best tablet options right now.
