When it comes to Android phones, most people look forward to the Nexus devices, treating it as the holy grail of phones. For a good reason of course – it is the flagship Android phone with the latest version of stock Android (not to mention it receives the updates first) and latest features (the Nexus S had NFC and a front facing camera). Well the folks over at BGR claim that they’ve got the exclusive details about the next generation Nexus smartphone.
No manufacturer has been mentioned yet, but BGR claims that it’ll be packing an OMAP 4460 or 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon dual-core processor (1.2GHz or 1.5Ghz) instead of the previously rumored NVIDIA Kal-El (Tegra 3) processor. The phone will pack a 720p HD “monster-sized” screen (so we’re assuming 4.5-5″) and it won’t have any physical buttons like our current Android phones.
Other specs include: a 4G LTE radio, 1GB of RAM, 1080p HD video capture and playback, a 1-megapixel front facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear camera, (that is said to have a high performance sensor that works well in low-light conditions), Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and will be an ultrathin device. No carrier has been confirmed for the device, but speculations lead to AT&T, and the phone could possibly be a non-Nexus device but an Android LTE phone instead. The phone is expected to launch sometime around Thanksgiving, though no prices have been mentioned.
Before you start drooling all over yourself – remember to take this information with a pinch of salt, after all there’s no concrete proof or evidence of any kind to what this phone may be. With that being said, what do you think of the device? Do you think it is worthy of having the “Nexus” name?
