O2 bags Nexus 4 exclusive

Operator will be the only outlet for Google's new phone for a month

October 31, 2012

O2 has secured a one month exclusive on Google’s freshly announced Nexus 4 smartphone.

O2 will have the phone on sale come November 13, just a fortnight’s time, and the handset will be free on contracts starting from £36 per month.

Pocket Lint heard that the phone was an exclusive to O2, albeit only for a period of one month, so just before Christmas other networks will be offering the latest Google super-phone.

The Nexus 4 comes with the latest version of Jelly Bean, v4.2, on board. This adds a number of features including 360 degree panoramic photos and a gesture-driven virtual keyboard (like Swype).

Tech specs include a 4.7 inch, 1280 x 768 display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, an 8-megapixel main camera, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, NFC, wireless charging, and an HDMI out.

Sim-free, the Nexus 4 will retail at £239.

O2 also now has the HTC One X+ on sale, the beefed up version of HTC’s flagship Android smartphone. It costs £480 sim-free, or you can pick it up starting at £26 per month – though the phone will cost you £300 on this tariff.

If you want the handset free, you’ll have to step up to a £41 per month deal, although that does include unlimited voice and texts, plus 2GB of data.
