We know what Google’s Android Event will reveal: Nexus 10, LG Nexus 4 and some Key Lime Pie



Knowing what’s going to be released during a secret launch is standard now. Google’s Android Event, scheduled for 29 October is just a formality now. The Next Web found a source and squeezed the info out of them. The Playground is most certainly open, and here’s everything we know.

  • Two 32GB Nexus 7’s. One with 3G, one without.
  • “Codename Manta”, a 10-inch tablet with Android 4.2, or Key Lime Pie. It’s going to have a 2560×1600 resolution with a 300PPI display. Possible name? The Nexus 10.
  • A Nexus smartphone, developed by LG. It’s going to be called the LG Nexus 4 and has a quad-core 1.7Ghz CPU, 2GB RAM, a 4.7-inch display, an 8GB rear camera and a 2100mAh battery. It’ll also run Android 4.2.
  • There’s some info on Android 4.2. Key Lime Pie will introduce “Tablet Sharing” and “Content in the Centre”. The first one is easy profile switching for multiple tablet users. The second one is turns the Play store into a widget.

And that’s all the leaks fit to print. Hold onto your seats, 29 October is right round the corner. But now, there’s nothing to look forward to. Damn internet.
