Google Nexus 4 to feature wireless charging

A leaked instruction manual has revealed a surprise feature on Google’s latest, belated headline handset

The Google Nexus 4 might be the most leaked device we’ve ever seen. But in fairness to Google, it's powerless in the face of Hurricane Sandy – which has held up the launch event, meaning more opportunity for leaks like the Nexus 4 manual. And that manual has a surprise revelation – the Google Nexus 4 will come with wireless charging built in.

The manual leaked on LG’s offical website, then was swiftly removed. But not before Pocket-Lint clocked that the Nexus 4 features an induction coil for wireless charging. Less exciting is the fact it will launch with a puny 8GB storage and no microSD card slot. Although according to Gizmodo a 16GB version is on the way soon.

But with a 4.7in display, 2GB RAM and the popular new 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 8MP snapper and NFC – plus instant updates to the latest version of Android – we’re very excited about Google’s latest smartphone.
