Rumors surrounding a new Nexus device (or devices) have been circulating around the web for the past several months. As expected, however, the info leaked is nothing more than a rumor. Well some new details have emerged that could be a glimpse of what to expect. Via a blog post, according to GSM Arena they have received an anonymous tip that the next Nexus device will be coming from HTC and is will be their oft rumored 5-inch phablet, known as either the Droid Incredible X or the One X 5. Please keep in mind that there is no way to confirm the validity of the infomation but the tipster did say these details come from a very reliable source within HTC.
The anonymous tipster also claimed that the Google Nexus 5 will run on Android 4.1.2, which brings bugfixes, Project Butter improvements, extra lockscreen functionality as well as other minor tweaks. It has been a tradition of sorts for Google to launch new versions of Android with its product announcements, so releasing a new Jelly Bean version with the Nexus 5 makes sense.
From a hardware perspective, the Google Nexus 5 will reportedly offer a 1080p display and a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. The first Google phablet will reportedly offer a 12MP main camera, teamed up with a 2MP front-facing snapper.
All of this will come in a super slim design and a large, 2,500mAh battery. Internal memory is going to be up to 64GB and there will be LTE connectivity. The true question begs to be asked as to whether or not 5 Nexus devices will still be launched to commemorate Android’s 5th anniversary (could this be HTC’s offering?). If this rumor is true though it may speak to a great new device for the Android faithful to mess around with. As previously stated, as of now this information is nothing more than a rumor. DroidDog will continue to keep you updated with any new information that becomes available.
