There have been rumors and leaks about the new Google Nexus handset for a long time now. This is the LG Nexus with the model number LG-E960 and today the device, which is said to be coming out way in November, has surfaced on the net in the form of clearer photos.
More pictures of Samsung Galaxy Nexus successor
There have been leaked photos of the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus before, however these were a little on the grainy side. Today, along with better photos, more specs have been revealed. The photos show the back of the handset, which looks like the LG Optimus G on Sprint. The front of the device has the look of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, with differences being the chrome styling of the bezel and the speaker grille.
The photos came courtesy of Android Central and clearly show the home screen and on-screen buttons, which you would find on a stock Android running phone. Specs have been reported to include an 8 megapixel camera and Jelly Bean MR1. The device is said to be powered by a 1.5GHz ARMv7 quad core with Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM.
It was rumored that the Nexus device would have a resolution of 1280 x 768 True HD IPS display. This may have been changed to a resolution of 1184 x 768 with 320ppi. However, a vertical resolution of this size does seem a little on the odd side. It also seems that the handset will be available in 8GB or 16GB and this would disappoint a lot of people as there is no SD card support. It is also said that the device will not support LTE, but will support HSPA+ on the T-Mobile and AT&T networks.
