LG Nexus 4 Spotted in Benchmark Test Results

LG’s upcoming Nexus handset has been spotted in results posted on the website of smartphone-testing software GLBenchmark.

The new device is expected to be unveiled at a Google event scheduled for 29 October, with a senior staff member at the Korean firm having admitted as much in an interview earlier this week.

Appearing under the codename Mako, the Nexus 4 scored highly and appeared to be running a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with an Adreno 320 GPU.

Perhaps most interestingly though is that the results claim that the LG device was running Android 4.2, suggesting that Google will unveil a further version of its mobile platform alongside the launch of the Nexus 4.

Speculation surrounding Android 4.2 has pointed towards the platform introducing multiple user accounts, allowing  one device to be used by a number of people. This could prove to be a real advantage in the tablet market, with several members of the same family being able to create their own profiles on a shared device.

Previously reported specs for the LG Nexus suggest that it will feature 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch, 768×1280 pixel display. However, some rumours have also pointed towards the handset having only 8GB of internal storage and no support for a microSD card.
