Update: This upgrade is now live! It will be rolling out over the air starting today. Just be patient. Or repeatedly hit that "Check now" button. Either way.

The Optimus G, LG's powerhouse which serves as the base for the Nexus 4, is going to be released on Sprint on November 11th. At launch, it will receive an OTA to version LS970ZV8, we learned today from internal Sprint documents.

The update will bring the following enhancements and fixes to this quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro beast:

  • Intermittent freezing/locking up
  • Intermittent device reset during  YouTube playback
  • No power on due to Wi-Fi crash
  • Sprint ID icon randomly shows as Mobile ID icon
  • MSL protection for ##DIAG# should be on
  • Reply to All in email: Device was including the sender name, outside of normal.

The season for Nexus leaks is over. We already have all the glorious details about the next-gen Nexuses, so what are we doing to talk about now? How about some other stuff. New stuff. New leaked stuff.

In this case, it's a new Sony device codenamed Yuga. The device carries the model number C660X, and sports some rather impressive specs:

  • 5" 1080p display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core processor (likely S4 Pro)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12MP rear shooter with dedicated camera button
  • Android 4.1.1 (for now)

So far as form factor is concerned, the handset is said to have a unibody design and glass back, much like the Nexus 4.

Does a new mid-range Android on Sprint get your juices flowing? Me neither. But we're going to tell you about it anyway. So, this is a new Sprint mid-range budget phone, and we have no idea who it's made by. Take a look at these photos, leaked courtesy of an anonymous tipster:

Our guess on the OEM is ZTE, but don't quote us on it. Given Sprint's relationship with the company in the past (especially on its prepaid subsidiaries), a Sprint-branded ZTE handset would make the most sense.

At this point, the LG Nexus 4 is the most-leaked phone since, well, that other phone. Today a video from the carrier 3 in Sweden has popped up on YouTube with a near two minute look at the device, showing us around Android 4.2 a bit. The phone itself looks just like all the pictures we've seen. The video also confirms the Quick Settings menu Ron found. Conveniently, users will access it via a button, not a second pull-down shade.

UPDATE: BriefMobile has just given us another treat, catching a (very) quick video of the Nexus 10, showing off – to some extent – its speed, and the 4.2 lockscreen in landscape mode. While the video is short, it does more justice to the device's overall form factor than probably any single photo we saw yesterday.

The post also suggests that the slate's display might be an IPS panel after all, as BriefMobile's source indicates the display has color reproduction and clarity similar to HTC's SLCD2 panel.

OK, OK... we've seen it before. And before that. And before that. But, it's the new Nexus phone, and we want to see as much of it as we can before the official announcement on Monday. Thanks to @evleaks, we have what seems to be a final render of the device, and this time it doesn't appear to be running a custom ROM.

And there you have it - the Nexus 4 in all of its glory.

At this point, there's no doubt that the Nexus 10 is a real thing - we've already seen the quick start guide (among other, more ambiguous data), after all. But now, Vic Gundotra has posted some images to his Google+ page showing off what the Nexus 10's camera is capable of. I must say, it's actually pretty impressive, especially for a tablet.

EXIF data reveals all! Or maybe just a little bit.

At this point, this one online retailer has leaked more information than we have space on the internet to put it. This time, the inventory system that previously leaked the name of the Nexus 4 is showing with color options and a price tag in tow. Apparently this device will cost £389 without a SIM. For our American readers, the exchange rate would bring that out to about $628, though we imagine they'll massage the number a bit by the time it hits the states.

Consider us floored: pictures from a booklet claiming to be a Nexus 10 manual (and I think that claim looks pretty well-founded) have leaked on Korean blog Seeko. I'm not even going to say any more before just showing you the evidence.

Wow.

Sure, it's possible to fake something like this, and no, this doesn't mean for sure that we'll see the Nexus 10 unveiled at Google's NYC event next week, but this pretty much confirms the existence of the thing.

I've been debating posting this all day for the reasons I'll explain below, but based on the feedback from a number of people who claim to be Sprint insiders, the information leaked earlier today in an XDA post by user supercholo may be legitimate. The leak suggests that the Jelly Bean update for Sprint's Galaxy S III may be arriving starting tomorrow, October 25th. Here is the alleged internal memo stating so:

Whether the memo is 100% legitimate or not, and whether Sprint actually follows up tomorrow remains to be seen - it's not the first time the company played tricks on its employees, and it's not the first time a software update was delayed.
