Any Swedish speakers out there? Swedroid has uncovered what appears to be our first look at the LG Nexus 4 in action despite the cancellation of a Google event today where the phone was expected to be unveiled. The YouTube video doesn’t provide much, but we do get to see the new Android 4.2 quick setting menu in action. The feature is accessed via the notifications pane and provides instant access to setting such as brightness, WiFi, airplane mode, and the like.
As shown in numerous photo leaks, the handset borrows from the design language of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus closely, though it lacks a curved display and looks to be slightly thicker. Likewise, Android 4.2 will act as an extension to the current Jelly Bean branch of the operating system and major user interface changes aren’t expected. Instead, Google will introduce a series of minor enhancements such as the aforementioned quick settings menu.
We’re still awaiting word from Google on plans to reschedule the event that would have introduced the world to LG’s first Nexus device. The phone’s coming out party was postponed in light of a Hurricane currently making its way across the North Eastern United States.
