The rumored LG Nexus 4 / LG E960 Mako keeps talking about himself. After teasing us with a few images every other day, Belarusian website Onliner.by has now uploaded a full review of what has come to be known as the LG Nexus 4. After the some leaked camera samples by the Belarusian site Onliner.by, it’s time for a benchmark.
The Nexus 4 disappoints in the synthetic benchmarks department. The AnTuTu and Quadrant scores are way low for something with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB of RAM under the hood and even slower than the scores of the international One X with the Tegra 3 processor.
All of this can be put down to this being a prototype device and things could improve considerably in the final version. That could also explain why this particular unit had just 8GB of internal memory. With the launch of the next Nexus being said to be on October 29, we don’t have to wait long to find out what the real deal would be like.

The rumored LG Nexus 4 / LG E960 Mako is spotted again, but this time we have some samples of it’s 8MP sensor. And here’s the shots.
The rumored LG Nexus 4 / LG E960 Mako is spotted again in some leaked photos by the Belarusian site Onliner.by, that has snapped some highquality pictures of the prototype unit. And this time we can see in the pictures a comparaison between the the Galaxy Nexus & the LG Nexus 4, and we can see from the images just how similar the LG Nexus 4 is to the Galaxy Nexus. The all-black, featureless face has become a signature of the Nexus line of phones since the Nexus S. The Nexus 4 looks practically identical to the Galaxy Nexus from the front, save for a chrome ring around the bezel. It even has the notification LED in the same place as the Galaxy Nexus.
