LG Nexus 4 photo EXIF data leak

The upcoming LG E960 Nexus device has been the subject of more leaks and rumors in recent weeks than I think anyone can keep track of, and today we've got another to add to the pile. A couple of new images have been discovered in the Picasa account of Mehul Agarwal, who works as a software engineer at Google, and the EXIF data of the shots shows that they were taken with a "Nexus 4" made by LGE, aka LG Electronics. The two photos are part of an album titled "Latte Art Chronicles" and were posted on Thursday and Friday.

This is the third time that we've seen the name "Nexus 4" pop up. It first showed up in the inventory system of U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse, and it was also used by French newspaper Le Figaro when the publication claimed that the device is due to be introduced on October 29. Of course, neither the Nexus 4 name nor the device itself is official yet, and EXIF data is certainly fakable. We've seen previous EXIF leaks turn out to be accurate, though, so it's certainly possible that this one is legit too. Good thing we may only have a couple more weeks to wait before all is finally revealed. What do you all think of the name "Nexus 4"? If you're not a fan, what name would you choose for this LG Nexus phone?
