By this time next week, Google’s latest Nexus handset should be official, as we hope to get word of the LG-manufactured Nexus 4 at Monday’s Google event. Over the next several days, we expect to see some last-minute Nexus 4 discoveries start creeping out of the woodwork, like the render we just looked at (though that one may be a fake), or what we have before us now, upon the discovery of some Nexus 4 benchmarks.
Entered into the GLBenchmark database as the “Google Nexus 4″, the phone identifies itself by codename “mako”, which we’ve already seen in screenshots of the phone’s hardware under testing.
We’ve heard of this handset running both Android 4.1.2 as well as Android 4.2; at the time of this benchmark, the phone was running the latter.
As for the specs themselves, they look quite impressive. The Nexus 4 finds itself near the top of the pack, along with other models sporting similar quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chips. Suffice it to say, we’re hugely excited to finally see this one arrive.
