Just a little while ago, the first purported press shots of the LG Nexus 4 hit Twitter, thanks to EVLeaks. Almost immediately after looking at the image, though, it's clear something's... not right.


Let's start with the notification bar - look familiar? If you've ever run the AOKP ROM, it should. Both the centered clock and battery percentage (the one actually in the battery icon - it's barely visible in the render) are signature customizations of the ROM. If you look closely, you'll also notice quite a bit of artifacting where the "screen" meets the bezel, as well as around all the navigation buttons.

Then there's the back of the device. In previous leaks, we've seen the "with Google" branding along the backside of the N4, which has been replaced by "nexus" here. A closer look here reveals the more artifacting surrounding the logo, along with text that just doesn't seem to quite fit in with the rest of the image.

Update: EVLeaks just posted another shot, this time with a different angle:


As you can see, this one has a completely different status bar, and it looks more legit than the first image. It's probably safe to say that the device shell is a finalized official render, so, for all intents and purposes, this is what the Nexus 4 looks like. The screenshot, however, doesn't quite match up - the angles are all wrong. Looks like someone's just throwing weird screenshots into the mix for.. fun? Who knows.

At this point, we've seen enough leaks to basically know what the Nexus 4 is going to look like. When we find out on Monday, I have little doubt that we'll see something very similar to this image - I'm just not convinced that this is the one we'll see.
