Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has clearly stated a few times before that it wasn’t planning on adopting Google’s Android operating system and that it was committed to Microsoft’s Windows Phone, but that did not prevent enthusiasts from imagining a Nokia handset running Android.Even more, the latest concept phone that emerged in this regard was conceived as part of the popular Google Nexus lineup and powered by the latest Android flavor out there.
Coming from designer Deepak Ahuja, via concept-phones, the new Nokia Nexus G smartphone runs under a yet unannounced flavor of Google’s mobile platform, namely Android 4.3, while packing top-of-the-line hardware inside.
There’s a 5-inch Super AMOLED HD+ touchscreen display on the front of the device, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and capable of delivering a 1092 x 1320 pixels resolution at a density of 441 ppi.
Inside, there’s a 2GHz quad-core processor capable of offering increased performance capabilities, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of internal storage, with no microSD memory card included.
On the back, the concept device sports a 21MP PureView photo snapper with Xenon flash, capable of a great imaging experience while on the go. It is complemented by a 4.5MP front camera, great for making video calls while on the go should such a device ever arrive on shelves.
Other specs of the Nokia Nexus G include a 4,050 mAh battery, a 3.5mm audio jack and Purity sound enhancement, 4G LTE connectivity, and the usual set of sensors inside high-end smartphones today.
For the time being, however, this is merely a concept phone, although a highly appealing one, and chances are that it will remain only the product of a user’s imagination. However, should Nokia fail with Windows Phone, there is a chance that it would try its luck in the Android segment as well, but don’t hold your breath for that.
