Google and its partners might be already working on the development of the next-generation Nexus devices, and possible details on their specs might have emerged online recently.
Nothing has been confirmed on this for the time being, but rumor has it that there might be both a Nexus 5 and a Nexus 7.7 set to debut before the end of this year.
Furthermore, the latest hearsay suggests that LG might build the next Nexus smartphone as well, while ASUS would remain Google’s partner for the smaller Nexus tablet PC.
The phone might feature a 5-inch touchscreen display, while suggested to sport the name of Nexus 5 when made official. As for the tablet PC, it is said to land on shelves as Nexus 7.7, featuring a screen size to match its name.
One thing that doesn’t add up is the piece of info regarding the debut of both devices at Google I/O in May. No new Nexus phone was unveiled at this conference, which means that this might not happen this year either.
Not to mention that LG themselves have already denied planning the launch of a Nexus 5 at the conference. However, this does not exclude the possible unveiling of the smartphone at a different date throughout the year.
Alleged specs of Nexus 5 also include full HD resolution for the screen, Nvidia Tegra 4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixels photo snapper on the back, front camera and the next version of Google’s Android operating system.
As for Nexus 7.7, it is expected to sport a 1080p screen too, along with the same Tegra 4 CPU and 2GB of RAM, and the same future flavor of the mobile operating system.
Although built using newer mobile technology, both devices are expected to be offered for purchase at low price tags, the same as Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 were put up for sale this year.
Although all the above sounds very good, it still remains to be seen whether Google will confirm the rumored specs of these devices. In the meantime, we’ll take these details with a big grain of salt, but we’ll keep an eye out for more info on the matter.
