Google has oft been criticized for launching the Nexus 4, the company’s latest and most powerful Nexus device, without support for LTE connectivity, making an otherwise amazing smartphone (with an amazingly low price tag) a bit limited when it comes to data speeds.
The Nexus 4 has also been criticized for lack of good storage options, with only 8 and 16GB models available at the moment, which makes it a bad option for those with a huge collection of media and other files they want to store on the device itself. However, according to a report out of SidhTech, Google might address both concerns at the Google I/O in May by launching an LTE-enabled 32GB variant of the Nexus 4, with CDMA compatibility for Sprint and Verizon in the US.
This isn’t a new occurrence – the Nexus S 4G for Sprint came out a few months after the original Nexus S, while Verizon exclusively offered a 32GB LTE Galaxy Nexus, making it completely plausible that a 32GB Nexus 4 LTE might get released in the coming months. Which would be great and change the minds of those who’ve written off the Nexus 4 due to the aforementioned limitations, especially the lack of LTE internet.
There is no confirmation of anything as of yet, but it’s only a matter of weeks before all is revealed by Google at its I/O event – here’s hoping we’ll get to see Android 5.0 in all its glory running on the 32GB Nexus 4 LTE. If not, oh well, we’ll just wait for the Nexus 5 to address the limitations of its predecessor.
