Rumors about Android 4.2.2 running on a Nexus 4 started floating around since last week, when an image of a Nexus 4 running Android 4.2.2 surfaced in Brazil. The rumor indicated that the latest batch of Nexus 4 rolling out from LG’s factory in Brazil is already running Android 4.2.2.
Today, a Czech site – SmartMania.cz – casually showed off Android 4.2.2 running on a Nexus 4 in an overview video of the phone. The previous image and this video all but confirm the existence of Android 4.2.2. Don’t expect Android 4.2.2 to bring any new features or UI changes though.
The minor bump in the Jelly Bean version is only aimed at improving the overall performance, stability and battery life of all the Nexus devices, that has gone down considerably in Android 4.2.1.
If you think that the above video is fake and just a build.prop edit, then check the video again. The leaked picture and the video show the Nexus 4 using a newer .44 radio/baseband that at least, for me, proves the authenticity of the video and image.
