You’d be forgiven for not knowing anything about the Google Nexus 4G; that being because it doesn’t actually exist, yet. The Nexus 4G rumours surfaced yesterday over at BGR when they released information which they insist is provided by good sources — we tend to believe them. The Nexus 4G is pushing some pretty amazing specs as well, here they are:
- Next Generation – Dual-Core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU from Qualcomm or OMAP (4460)
- “monster-sized” screen (4.3″?) – 720p resolution (1280×720)
- No hardware/capacitive buttons – so it will run Android 4.0 with software buttons
- 4G LTE
- 1GB RAM
- 1080p video recording
- 5MP camera with class-leading image quality
BGR’s source claims the device is meant to be out at Thanksgiving in the US, which falls on the 24th of November. This date lines up nicely with Google announcing that Ice Cream Sandwich would launch nearing the end of the year, and having a Nexus device run the software before any other device makes perfect sense. There is also no word on who will design the next Nexus phone seeing as though HTC (Nexus One) and Samsung (Nexus S) have both had a crack at it, hopefully not Motorola.
What also launches at the end of the year here in Australia are the LTE networks for Telstra and perhaps Vodafone, if they’re still running on schedule, meaning that the Nexus 4G would launch exclusively on Vodafone and their LTE network since they have the global rights on the Nexus range of devices from Google. There’s a lot to look forward to here, but remember, this is all rumour for now.
