Short video of Nexus 4 shows quick settings, multi-user
A short video landing online today confirms a couple of details for the upcoming (should have been announced by now) Nexus 4. You’ll see in the clip, embedded after the break, that the Nexus 4 appears to be very much like all of the photos we’ve seen over the past few weeks. Good or bad, the form factor looks a bit like something that Samsung might have put together.
You’ll notice that we also get a quick glimpse of a secondary screen accessible through the drop-down notification shade. As a quick way to get to some of the more popular settings (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, battery, etc), this is a welcome, albeit subtle improvement.
It’s worth noting that this is also where we can access the user profile for the handset. One of the key features rumored for Android 4.2 was the ability to toggle between users on the phone, much in the way we can do with our computers. It’s not yet known what fully happens when switching from one account to another, but we suspect we’ll get that in due time.
