Google and LG will reportedly unveil the Optimus G Nexus smartphone on 29 October.

The next Google Nexus smartphone will be announced on 29 October with a release date of December in France, according to Le Figaro. The handset is currently known as the LG Optimus G Nexus or LG Nexus 4.

"Nexus 4 will be launched on October 29, told Le Figaro. In France, it will be marketed in early December. It might help LG to boost its sales." said Le Figaro.

The launch date coincides with Microsoft's launch of Windows Phone 8. Read: Group test: what's the best smartphone?

The move means that Google is doing the rounds for the Nexus smartphone after partnering with Samsung for the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, and HTC for the Nexus One. Google joined forces with Asus to make the Nexus 7 tablet.

Rumoured specifications for the LG Optimus G Nexus, or Nexus 4, include a Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1280 x 768 True-HD IPS screen, an 8Mp camera and 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. Like the previous Nexus device, there will apparently be no microSD card for expansion.

Rather than introducing an entirely new version of Android, the Nexus 4 will bring an incremental update to Jelly Bean, version 4.2.
