Google said: "Today, we’re excited to announce three great new Nexus devices … in small, medium and large. And they all run Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jelly Bean—which includes the latest version of Google Now and other great new features."
As expected the Nexus 4 is Google's latest smartphone made by LG. The devices comes with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 4.7in IPS Plus (768 x 1280) screen, 2GB of RAM, an 8Mp camera, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, NFC and wireless charging. The Nexus 4 will be available from the Google Play Store on 13 November starting at £239.
The Nexus 10 has come from a partnership with Samsung and is a 10in version of the Nexus 7. The screen uses a 2560 x 1600 (300ppi) resolution making it "the highest resolution tablet on the planet", according to Google. It will be available on 13 November in 16GB or 32GB models priced at £319 and £389 respectively.
Google also confirmed a refresh of its Nexus 7 line-up with the 8GB being replaced by the 16GB at £159 and the 16GB being replaced by the 32GB model at £199. There's also a new 32GB with 3G model priced at £239.
All the new devices will come with the new version of Android, 4.2 Jelly Bean - except the Nexus 7 which we expect will be updated soon. New features include gesture typing, multiple user accounts, a Photo Sphere camera mode and an updated version of Google Now.
