Google Employee Takes Photo With 'Nexus 3' Device

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.
