With Google’s I/O conference less than two weeks away, you’d think we knew what to expect from the event by now. And yet nothing’s set in stone and nothing is confirmed, at least in relation to major hardware and software launches.
We could be seeing the mythical Motorola X Phone get unveiled in San Francisco, the dubious LG-made Nexus 5 and the oft-rumored Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Or Google could be bringing to the world just a rehashed Nexus 4 handheld with 32 GB of storage and LTE, plus an incremental update to Android, dubbed 4.3 Jelly Bean.
That latter scenario is unfortunately gaining traction by the day, with the latest “leak” showing a Google Nexus 4 LTE with Android 4.3.0 going through the AnTuTu hoops. There’s no way to know if the benchmark is legit, but it might well be given traces of Android 4.3 have been found in several online server logs, while rumors about an N5 or X Phone have smelled really fishy of late.
The LTE-enabled N4, if real, will likely resemble the first edition of the LG-manufactured phone in most ways, which is a bummer. Not that the Nexus 4 is so bad, but it’s no longer a truly top of the line handheld, is it?
