We must admit that the current Nexus S flagship from Google didn’t quite do its job as it was intended, partially because of the fierce competition and partially because of the not so state of the art hardware packed inside it. With this in mind, we look with hope to the Nexus 4G specs, as it will probably be named. And with the details that are currently available we are very impressed.
Word is that the Nexus 4G specs will come with a beast of a processor, which will run at 1.2 or 1.5 GHz. The important part here is the manufacturer, some say Google will choose the NVIDIA made Kal-El processor while other point their fingers to the next generation ultra low power 28nm Snapdragon, based on a new core named Krait. In either case, both of these CPUs will surely do a fine job regardless of the other specs of the device. Taking into account that the device will also come with 1 GB worth or RAM, do not be surprised if it will topple every performance chart out there.
The second very interesting fact about the Nexus 4G is the screen. It is said to be the first smart phone screen to feature 720p HD screen. That means it will have a whopping 1280×720 pixels in a large sized screen. We do not know how large yet but we are willing to bet on a 4.3 inch or a 4.5 inch diagonal one. The most interesting part however is that the screen will occupy the entire front of the device. This means that there will be no physical or even capacitive buttons under the display anymore. Certainly this must mean something big is coming with this particular model.
If you are thinking that the Nexus 4G should come with an 8 MP camera or even a pair of them, you will be a little disappointed to hear that Google decided to put a 5 MP snapper on its next flagship. The good thing is that the camera sensor will bring class leading image quality and superior low light performance. This highly advanced sensor will also have a 1 MP brother on the front of the device. As the name implies, the next Nexus will also spot 4G LTE coverage.
Software wise, this will definitely be the first device to pack the revolutionary Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwish. We do not know the manufacturer of the device, but most fingers point to either HTC or LG. The last rumored piece of information about the device is the release date, which currently hovers around Thanksgiving, but nothing is certain.
All in all it really looks like Google is going to enter the mobile phone market with quite a bang again, and if everything goes to plan, we might just see the first Android device that left behind all the under the screen buttons.
