The LG Nexus 4 will be making its way to O2 on November 13, the carrier has announced. Not only that, it is going to be exclusive to the carrier, so if you’re in the UK and you want a Nexus 4 without spending the no contract price, O2 is going to be your only options. Google will be selling the phone unlocked, but if you don’t want to drop £239 for the 8GB, £279 for the 16GB, O2 is your choice.
The Nexus 4 features Android 4.2 running on a quadcore Snapdragon S4 processor. It also features an 8-megapixel camera and with a 4.7-inch display. That camera is used with the new 360-degree Photo Sphere tool. O2 has not said whether it will include the wireless charging dock or if it will sell it separately.
With a 2-year contract and a plan of £36 per month or above, the phone will be free. That plan grants unlimited calling, messaging and 1GB of data. The phone does not have 4G, but neither does O2 at this point.
While getting the phone for free is a nice deal, the upfront cost of getting the phone through Google could be cheaper in the long run without long-term contract. In the US, T-Mobile will be the carrier of choice for the phone, although Google has said that they will be selling the device themselves in the US as well.
