Earlier rumors of Nexus 3 Tegra 3 Quad core seem to be bending in a different direction now. BGR reports that the Google might choose to release two new devices this year, which would be dual cores instead of quad cores.
The next Nexus device, would be called the Nexus 4G, featuring next gen dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU (OMAP 4460 or a, ultra low-power 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon). The best part would be its high resolution display 720p HD “monster-sized” screen.
What’s more would be that it would be ditching all physical features in order to align with Honeycomb flavored Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 operating system.
Ice Cream sandwich would bring:
- Unified for Smartphones + Tablets goodbye fragmentation
- New innovative features like face-tracking and camera focus shifting based on voice recognition.
- Hardware accelerated holographic UI from honeycomb.
- Face recognition, Virtual camera.
- Improved multitasking.
Other than that it would sport 4G LTE radio, 1GB of RAM, 1080p HD video capture and playback, a 1-megapixel front-camera, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The rear camera may seem to be similar on specs but it would actually be a high-end, high performance 5MP camera that would deliver class-leading image quality and really nice ISO sensitivity to reproduce excellent results even in low light.
Nexus 4G would be thin and light, and would be available around Thanksgiving with AT&T & sprint.
The awesome display resolution, thin and light would make it adorable gadget in November. However, Samsung Galaxy SIII Tegra 3, launching in Q1 2012, would beat the phone in every sense.
