Two of the chief complaints regarding the LG Nexus 4 is the fact that the largest amount of storage on the Nexus 4 is fixed at 16GB and that it lacks LTE connectivity. According to a recent rumor, Google I/O may very well see the introduction of a slightly refreshed Nexus 4 smartphone.
By a slight refresh, we mean more onboard storage such as 32GB, and the presence of LTE connectivity. With that being said, we do not anticipate seeing an upgrade to battery life or screen resolution. However, the upgrade in storage and faster network speeds should be well-received by prospective Nexus 4 customers.
There is a strong chance that Google may drop the Nexus 4 8GB model if the rumor pans out. If Google opts to drop the 8GB model, then I would imagine the 16GB would be sold at the base price of $299 and the 32GB LTE model would take command of the $349 price tag. While some Android fans may be peeved at Google for not launching the X Phone, I believe a 32GB Nexus 4 with LTE makes a lot of sense given the recent development of T-Mobile’s LTE network.
