There’s been plenty of speculation surrounding Google‘s next-gen flagship, but it looks like the handset’s finally been outed.
That’s thanks to BGR, which claims to have the inside scoop on the so-called ‘Nexus 4G‘. According to the spies it’s going to be “an absolute beast”, and will come rocking a dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz processor. This’ll be backed up with 1GB RAM, and coupled with Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS – officially named ‘Android 4.0′.
The ultra-thin ‘Nexus 3‘ will also feature a 720p HD “monster-sized” screen, which matching up with those previous rumours, won’t come touting physical keys. Apparently everything will be “software-based”, thanks to all-new gesture controls within the upcoming OS.
Additionally, we can also expect to see 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video, which’ll sport an “advanced sensor delivering class-leading image quality and superior low light performance”. It’ll also come equipped with 4G speeds, although this won’t be available to UK punters.
Although it’s now being labelled the Google Nexus 4G, it might not launch as a Nexus device at all. According to BGR, “it’s also possible that this device will just be the flagship/reference Ice Cream Sandwich device — just like the Motorola DROID and Motorola XOOM were for Android 2.0 and Android 3.0, respectively — and not a Google Nexus-branded product”
The handsets pricing and release date is still TBC, although it’s expected to land in Q4 2011.
