Here is a video of a Nexus 4 being shown off. At the end, around 6:34, you get to see the About phone screen, with Android 4.2.2. This is the second time we’re seeing Android 4.2.2 somewhere, and it hasn’t gotten any clearer why some phones have it. If Google were to push out 4.2.2, they’d do so to everyone, as they always do. There is no logical reason why some phones will have it and some phones won’t. So why do some phones have it? Is it a scam? Is it Google shipping new phones with a new OS? There isn’t anything different about it, from what we can see.
This is just building on top of the Nexus 4 having its system images taken down and full source not being released. Throw in the low supply, and the Nexus 4 is a bit of a mess. Tell us, what do you think is going on?
