Leaked Nexus 4 Manual Reveals Wireless Charging

By Jamie Condliffe on at

While numerous leaks have hinted at what we could have expected from the new Nexus phone at today's cancelled Google event, the latest, from a Nexus 4 manual floating around online, brings two magic words with it: inductive charging.

As if losing the new phone in a bar wasn't enough, LG has also published a copy of the Nexus 4 manual in Australia. It seems to suggest that the new phone will pack wireless charging. Elsewhere, it confirms that there will definitely be a 16GB edition available in the future.

Wireless charging is one of those technologies that seems to be taking an age to become a standard commercial reality. Perhaps most notably Nokia is currently trying it—but it remains to be seen how well a an LG-Google version will work.

With today's Google event cancelled, it's unclear how or when Google will officially announce its updated product line. [LG via Engadget]
