As you probably know by now, Google is getting ready to announce some new products at their October 29 press event that is taking place in New York City.

The guys over at The Next Web have obtained information on the products that Google is planning on announcing at the NYC event. On that day, Google will announce a new Nexus phone, new variants of the Nexus 7 tablet, a new 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet, and Android 4.2, an upgraded version of Jelly Bean.

LG Nexus 4

The next Nexus phone that Google is planning on announcing is going to be manufactured by LG. It will be called the LG Nexus 4 and it will feature a powerful 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The LG Nexus 4 will also feature a large 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, front and rear-facing cameras (1.3 and 8-megapixels respectively), and a 2100mAh battery.

The operating system on the LG Nexus 4 as well as the other devices being announced on the 29th will be the new Android 4.2.

32GB Nexus 7

In addition to the LG Nexus 4, Google will also be a version of the Nexus 7 tablet with 32GB of internal storage. The new 32GB Nexus 7 will be available in both Wi-Fi and with HSPA+ 3G connectivity for those who require constant connectivity.

Nexus 10 tablet

Google will also be unveiling a bigger version of its Nexus 7 tablet. The new Nexus tablet will feature a 10-inch screen and is developed by Samsung. Although the name of the upcoming tablet hasn’t been confirmed, it’s safe to guess that it will be called the Nexus 10.

Samsung has been working on the tablet, and internally, the tablet goes under the name “Codename Mantra”. The 10-inch Nexus tablet features a 10-inch display with 2560×1600 resolution and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Android 4.2

The new version of Android, version 4.2, will still be called Jelly Bean instead of Key Lime Pie. Android 4.2 will include new features such as “Content in the center” and “Tablet sharing”. Content in the center will allow users to access the Play Store from a widget.

Tablet sharing will allow multiple users to share a tablet. Users will be able to “switch users”, which will keep email accounts and apps completely separate from other users’ accounts.
