Google Nexus 4G coming with Android 4.0 and 4G LTE capabilities?


It looks like Google is continuing the Nexus lineage with what might be called the Nexus 4G, and according to rumors it will be a beast of a phone. The device will be the first to feature Android 4.0, also assumed to be called Ice Cream Sandwich. Additionally, it will have a 1.2-1.5GHz processor, which might make the Nexus 4G a powerful device assuming Android 4.0 isn’t a system resources hog. However, BGR reports that it might not be NVIDIA’s Kal-El processor, and instead might be a TI OMAP 4460.

If you think that’s something, the Nexus 4G is also said to have 4G LTE capabilities, which can only mean that it’s going to hit AT&T or Verizon when it’s finally released. I’d assume it’d be for the latter, especially since AT&T will be launching its LTE network starting this summer, and the new Nexus device is slated to be released in November – just in time for the holidays.

Additionally, the Nexus 4G might have 1080p video recording and playback, a 1MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear camera. However, it sounds like the 5MP rear camera will be more along the lines of the one found on the iPhone, with larger pixels and greater low-light performance.

It almost sounds too good to be true, but then again, if I went back in time two years and told you that smartphones would have 8MP cameras, 1.2GHz dual core processors and day-long battery life with 4G capabilities, you’d probably laugh at me. So here’s to hoping.

    Let’s hope this thing lands on VZW soon! It’s Big Red’s turn to get a Nexus device and I’d gladly wait for this phone to become my first 4G device.

    Think I’ll be waiting for Kal-El before I upgrade.
