Google Employee Takes Photo With 'Nexus 3' Device

By - Source: Ubergizmo | B 8 comments

Nexus 4 was announced just recently.

Only a day after announcing the Nexus 4, there was some buzz about a Nexus 3.

Images were posted by Google employee John Mueller, with the accompanying data saying that the device the photos were taken on was the Nexus 3.

"We get to test some things before they're launched, but for everything else, there's exiv2.org," said Mueller. However, he then states: "Just to be clear, the EXIF data here is modified. Sorry for the confusion :)"

So while that was a fake (or at least some kind of concealment of another devices), Google's LG-developed Nexus 4 smartphone is real. The device boasts a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of RAM. A 4.7-inch display is accompanied by 3G support, wireless charging and NFC. It'll release on November 13 for $299.

    otacon72Quad core is a waste in a smartphone... just drains the battery with worse performance than an optimized Dual core. Skip the quad core and put in LTE. Not putting LTE in your flagship device is ridiculous.


    Average data usage in the US is like 2GB/month. LTE may be 5-10x faster than HSPA, but you can't read and watch movies 5-10x faster. Unless you experience buffering or at downloading a large file -- which you aren't because your data plan is only 2GB -- overall time saved with LTE vs. HSPA is actually quite negligible.

    I think the quad-core in the Nexus 4 is one of those new architectures with a smart low-voltage core. It only uses as many as it needs, and very mundane tasks can use the mini-core. They know what they're doing.

    As I just said... the new flagship is a quad, not a dual.

    I guess the fact that your going to be loading your average webpage 5-10x faster is irrelevant then. The difference between leading a page in 3 seconds and loading a page in 0.5 seconds is huge. It makes web browsing much more enjoyable, and makes your phone seem significantly faster.

    5-10x in what world? I'm using t-mobile and can get speeds between 18-24Mbps regularly using my S2. I've never seen LTE go over 35Mbps in the real world. I don't know why everyone thinks lte is that great when I can get good or better speeds on HSPA+ in real world conditions.

    I think it's more of a that there's bandwidth available on LTE, whereas in real world HSPA+ maybe clogged due to contention with other users.
    If you're lucky enough to be the only person on the celltower, maybe it doesn't matter.

    But when you're in the ballpark with 40,000 other people, you maybe glad to be on a different protocol over the rest of the rabble.

    I'm with you, I'm also on SGS2 with TMobile, it's so much faster than Verizon, AT&T and Sprint real 4G or fake 4G. My friends are jealous and wish they can have my speed. I constantly need to give them tether.
