The LG-made Nexus 4 by Google has just gotten a subtle design tweak. Newer production units of the smartphone will address the slippery glass back of the Nexus 4, where there has been reported cases of the phone slipping off surfaces and onto unsightly cracks and/or untimely deaths. There are now little rubber nubs at the back of the phone that very slightly lifts the phone up and crucially, provide greater friction against slippery surfaces. Also, as Android Central notes, the nubs now allow for fuller sounds emanating from the Nexus 4’s speaker.
It is, however, unlikely that the current batch of Nexus 4 phones in the local market will be this newer version. On the other hand, those who purchase the device from bulk importers from the US Play Store might very well receive Nexus 4 devices with the new tweaks. Current Nexus 4 owners who are constantly worrying about their Nexus 4s slipping off their desks could also get the official rubber bumper – though it may prove difficult, since it is only sold at selected Google Play Stores.
