Rumor confirms 4.7
Word on the interwebs is that Google may be looking to launch a number of Nexus devices this year, vastly expanding its line-up of stock Android-running handsets. Meanwhile, Spanish site MovilZona seems convinced that LG will be among the manufacturers who'll be announcing a Nexus phone later in the year.

According to the source, which claims to have acquired its information from a person who's close to Vodafone, the device in question will feature a big 4.7" display with very high resolution, sporing quality and detail close to that of the iPhone 5's Retina Display. Apparently, this matches the description of the recently-announced LG Optimus G, so what we're dealing with here might as well be a version of that very same phone. Whether the LG Nexus phone will be a version of the Optimus G, or a more differentiated handset remains to be seen, but it does make sense for Google to use LG's Optimus G as a template. After all, the Koreans' smartphone will have the best in terms of hardware once it ships in a month or so.

However, one of the cooler things going for the Nexus phones so far was that they were somewhat exclusive, or at least not as easy to come across, yet they were powerful Android smartphones. If the rumors about Google looking to expand the line-up with multiple launches this year turn out true, that might easily reduce their awesomeness a bit.

it's hard to choose when you are not taking into account the hardware difference.

Moto dosen't need to make a nexus seemingly as it is already Google. They can call their phones whatevver they want and it will be the main Google device.
That being said I am really looking forward to HTC Nexus One...all they have to do is get a bigger battery. I just Love HTC!

The new motos actually are very close to stock so we can see Google's influence there.

the thing about these Nexus devices is that they all excel in some points but down in some points too.

i wonder if all manufacturers would ever consider making one single handset with each of them contributing - Samsung's screen, HTC's design, Sony's camera etc etc on one phone.

best thing about Android: choice, :)

like the tributes, they allhave their talents and skills. hahahaha.

That and it looks like the Galaxy Nexus 2 won't be much more than an upgraded Galaxy Nexus.

Don't forget the first Nexus of the year!

Tribute from district ASUS: Nexus 7.

I do not think Motorola is going to make a Nexus. At least not this year. They do not want to cause a stir among the other partners with rumors of favoritism. The best way to avoid this is disadvantaging Motorola in the battle of Nexus this year.

But I really like the construction of Motorola handsets. The only flaw is the poor support for updates and poor quality cameras.
