Reports claim details of Google Nexus 4G

720p screen? I don't think so.
If it does have a 5mp camera, then you can bet the Nokia N9 is going to be the best smartphone for 2011.
The rest of the rumored specs for the Google Nexus 4G are way too obvious...

It is certainly possible. There have been reports of Samsung making a 720p 4" screen, that will obviously be making it into smartphones at some point. When it hits the market and if it'll be in the Nexus 4G are still suspect though.

Since the nexus is generally the best of tech at the moment it is released, that whole 1mpx/5mpx camera thing seems a bit low.
I dont know why a 720p screen seems so implausable though. They can greatly expand the size of the screen without increasing the bezel much at all, if they get rid of the capacitive buttons. Pair that up with samsungs upcomming nearly bezel-less design on the Super Amoled + screens and higher pixel density and it sounds quite plausable actually.
I do highly doubt that it will be a DC snapdragon though as they are the weakest of the dual cores at the moment. Of course, those OMAP benchmarks werent exactly mind blowing either.
Here's to hoping that samsung makes it and it comes with the latest SA+ screen tech, exynos overclocked, and whatever else. :)

It won't be samsung making it. They did the last one. It was crap.
They can keep their over saturated, bleeding yellow, burn in screens. exynos/mali is nothing great either.
It was toshiba or someone else who had the 4" 720p screen.
Bring on something better/new, not the same old samsung crap.

can you tell me which processor is better than the exynos and which screen is better than the new super amoled plus please?
I dont think they did a stellar job with the nexus S, but they also didnt do a crap job. It was simply a galaxyS with 2.3 on it. The galaxyS was/is a great phone and the best single core phone on the market.. but the nexus line is supposed to push the boundaries, not simply be high end.

N9 best of 2011? LULZ
with Symbian Anna on it? FAIL
If it had Megoo on it, I would bother to check if the hardware is up to snuff and not last year's components...
But I don't know a single person who would buy another smartphone with any form of Symbian on it. I'm not even going to bother listing the un-ending reasons why its such crap, cause it doesn't even matter, cause its a dead OS on smartphones.... its going to be featurephone only in the future, and rightly so...
And with the wrong OS, few apps and Symbian's retarded install certificate annoyance, I'd even pass if it was the very first device with Nvidia quadcores.
There is one device I'd be willing to suffer through Symbian for, if that was the only way to get one: a star trek pocket teleporter :P

I don't care if its a quad core 5 ghz processor with a 1080p screen, I will never buy a smartphone made by LG

5 megapixel camera?? Come on !!! Why isn't there 1 brand trying to make a phone with a better camera than Nokia N8?
Nokia seems to be the only one who cares about camera...

There is a windows phone with a 12 or 13mpx camera due out around christmas

"Nokia seems to be the only one who cares about camera..."
And because they bottle-necked their resources into how many megapixels they could cram into a phone they lost a huge chunk of their market share. More megapixels mean squat to the sensor size used in the average phone. You can only cram so much. I have had several nokias in my smartphone life (n95,n82,n86,n900 and others) and I have to say I got better results from my iphone 4. Im not a fanboy by any stretch but Im trying to say is that sometimes megapixels dont make the phone.

Huh? What's wrong with a 5mp camera? I would take a good 5mp camera over a crappy 12mp camera any day. Lots of good cameras are backing down from high megapixel counts to lower the noise in the photos and take better low-light, high iso pictures.
Disregarding a camera because of a low megapixel count just shows that you don't know much about digital photography.

Hey I just love the sexy FUR that the “Nexus 4G” or whatever that is laying on. That makes the new “Nexus 4G” even that much sexier! lol I hope that is Chinchilla fur & that it comes with the phone when it ships! lol

Here's a new form factor for a smartphone: 5 inch edge to edge super AMOLED screen, the other side has a 5 inch edge to edge pearl e-ink display.
Probably not a bad idea until we get color e-ink.

I'm still waiting for Mirasol displays to hit devices. Hoping that the Nexus Tab will feature one, but it seems unlikely.
16. remixfa (Posts: 14226; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
i could go for that. its gonna be a scratch and screen crack magnet though unless they make gorrilla glass even stronger somehow
17. WirelessCon (Posts: 309; Member since: 11 May 2010)
Good point. However, those flexible AMOLEDs that even a hammer can't break are less than a year away. Not sure how scratch resistant they are.
This is why we need a revitalized space program. We're 40 years behind where we should be.
19. remixfa (Posts: 14226; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
this is why we need more privatization in the space industry. the Xprize has done more for space flight in 5 years than nasa has done in 30. were about to have commercial space flights set up from Virgin Galactic.. all without help from NASA.
I didnt even think of the flex amoled screens. that could solve the breaking problem i guess. screen protectors are mandatory..lol
