Nice find. Hopefully the price will not rise too much with the addition of LTE.

Google could get 349 easily for the 16GB version.

If it appears at around that price it'll be winner with SIM free customers.

It they create a 32GB version, I'll get one. If it's still only 16GB, I'll stick with the one I have. The phone's fast enough for all my use on Three 3G.

If it were to turn out to be real and the price was around 350, that beg the question how much the Nexus5 would cost.
If you go much past 350 you end up in the realm of traditional SIM-free pricing.

That said, I can see no reason why it would cost more - the Nexus4 already has an LTE modem, it's not like it would cost extra to add one; and Google have already shown with the Nexus7 that they can swallow the cost of a capacity bump.

I reckon they will:

-Reduce the price of the 3G only version
-Introduce a 32GB 3G version at the current 16GB price point
-Sell the 32GB LTE version at 279 - 319
-Add a white colour option

I don't think the next Nexus or XPhone is coming until late Q3/Q4...Google always releases a Nexus phone late in the year, and with the rumours of delays to their upcoming project, I don't think we will see it at Google I/O....

They will more than likely keep Google I/O about Key Lime Pie with the Nexus 4 remaining as the flagship until later this year.

I reckon they will give the XPhone and/or next Nexus a separate event and a new Android version to go with it...they'll probably call it Lollipop or Lemon something...

Since the N4 already has an LTE modem built in i dont see how they could make the price much more.

We'll see.

LG themselves said that the current Nexus 4 has partial LTE capabilities. That's why it only works on some random Canadian LTE network. It's missing an amplifier and some other hardware, but it would be easy for LG to add those in considering they did so with the Optimus G, of which the Nexus 4 is a variant.
