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.
