It may-or-may-not be called the Nexus 4G, but BGR has learnt that Google's next flagship will be a 4G LTE "beast" with a dual-core processor up to 1.5GHz, and 720p "monster-sized" screen. Intriguingly, there aren't any buttons on the phone.
This means the usual cues—home, menu, back and search—will be done purely in Android, which makes sense. Personally, the only soft-touch button I use on my phone is the "home" button. BGR has posted an alluring amount of detail about this Nexus 4G phone, saying it's running on an OMAP 4460 or low-power 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon processor, and has 1GB of RAM.
On the outside, the 1080p-shooting backwards-facing camera is "just" 5MP with an "advanced" sensor, and the forward-facing one is looking to be a 1MP effort.
The real show-stopper here is that it could be the reference Ice Cream Sandwich phone, as Google likes to work closely with different manufacturers for a new flagship with every updated Android version. Don't go cutting your contract early to pick this one up though, as it's not said to be available to us mere mortals until Thanksgiving (November.) [BGR]
