Google Nexus 4 boasts wireless charging and quad core processor by LG

We’ve already heard of wireless charging with accessories like the Powermat and the out-of-the-box Nokia Lumia 920 with its “pillow charger” but this is the first Android device to be released with this feature. The induction coil chargers are not as efficient as the regular USB-to-wall chargers but they’re still hella cool to watch. There will come a day, of course, when these charging plates will be a mainstay in every home, which means, like, your work desk is also a huge charger.

The Google Nexus 4 is a 4.7 inch device running on a quad core processor and Android v4.2 Jelly Bean. It also comes with the new Photo Sphere feature for the camera which allows you to take 360-degree photos of objects. It also features Gesture Typing which allows you to hover over the letters of the virtual keyboard to input text.

8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract (check here for more details).
