We’ve had just about all the blurry cam action we can take when it comes to the upcoming Nexus 4 by LG, and we’re ready for the real deal to make its way to the news wire once Google unveils it October 29th. We’ve got something a bit better until then, though — official press renders!

It doesn’t show us much more than we’ve already seen, but it does give us a more clear look at what to expect from the design once it launches. Most photos have been inconsistent as far as showing how that back panel is supposed to look, but these shots do well to confirm that “glittery” look that you may or may not like.

One interesting thing to note is that this press render has a nice, big “Nexus” logo on the back as opposed to the Google logo we’re used to. Google started going this route with the Nexus 7 but we weren’t sure if this would change on the phone side of things.

Beyond that it looks like the same device we’ve been analyzing and scrutinizing since the beginning of time, and we look forward to getting our hands on the real thing next week Monday. As for this particular render there are a few odd things to note. For starters, the time stamp is in the middle of the notification bar and not on the right, as usual.

There are also some odd notifications which possibly show off the weather, but two different notifications with the number “92” seems weird and redundant. With all of the tomfoolery going on with hoaxes these days it’s always important to remember that this could be totally fake, but the source is one of the most trustworthy in the blogosphere.

Be sure to swing back here for everything Nexus as Google is expected to drop a smorgasbord of devices and announcements, including a possible 10 inch Nexus device made by Samsung and news of a 32GB configuration making its way to store shelves in place of the 8GB version. [via @Evleaks]
