Google has announced its Android 4.2 Nexus flagship, although much about the phone was already known after Carphone Warehouse accidentally leaked information on the device last week.
Although the firm cancelled its launch event due to Hurricane Sandy, Google was still keen to air its latest flagship smartphone, which comes with an impressive 4.7in HD touchscreen, a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon processor and 2GB RAM.
Of course, the phone is also the first to debut Google's Android 4.2 mobile operating system, not called Key Lime Pie as rumours had suggested.
This brings with it an updated version of Google Now, Swype-esque Gesture Typing, support for Miracast wireless displays and brings Google Music and Movies to the UK.
"Those of you in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain will be able to purchase music from the Google Play store and add up to 20,000 songs-for free-from your existing collection to the cloud for streaming to your Android devices or web browser," Google said in a blog post.
The debut LG-built Nexus also features an 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, NFC, support for wireless charging, a 2,100mAh battery and either 8GB or 16GB of included storage.
"This is the first time we collaborated with LG to build a Nexus device," said Andy Rubin, senior vice president of Mobile and Digital Content at Google.
The LG Nexus 4 will be available in the UK from November 13, despite Carphone Warehouse's promise of an imminent 30 October release on its leaked webpage.
Pricing for the 8GB and 16GB versions will cost £239 and £279 SIM free, respectively.
Google also today unveiled the 32GB Nexus 7 with 3G connectivity and the 10in Samsung Nexus 10.
