The Nexus 4 will feature wireless charging, according to a leaked quick-start manual for the much-discussed LG smartphone.

The manual specifically mentioned a “wireless charger”, as seen above, but it also said folks need to use “an approve model”.  The manual further noted the 4-inch Android device would house an induction coil on the back, according to Pocket-Lint, which reported the story via Ubergizmo, between the top Nexus logo and the bottom LG logo.

The LG Nexus 4 has been widely outed by third-party retailers, most notably Carphone Warehouse, and various other leaks. Just yesterday, reports surfaced that claimed the smartphone would boast a $504 price tag. The hefty cost allegedly comes with a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and more desirable specs.

Google was supposedly set to unveil the Nexus 4 at a media event in New York City today, but the search giant cancelled due to the impending havoc of Hurricane Sandy. While you wait for news of a rescheduled event, go below for a YouTube video that shows the widely leaked LG Nexus 4 in action.
