Rumor confirms 4.7" LG Nexus is on the way

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...

I meant "that's why apple sells so well because there always building on one phone instead of 5 a year."

"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"

Sorry, Ray, but you can tell your an Apple fan with this statement. Its not inherently biased or even bad, it just shows the mentality.

Geeks care about exclusivity. Its not gonna help you land a chick unless she is that rare geek. Nexus devices have never been the most powerful. The only exception was the very first Nexus1. Also, Nexus not being exclusive anymore is a GREAT thing for Android's OS. The more stock - direct updated devices there are, the better. As long as Google strong arms idiots like VZW into allowing them to direct update the device like the iphone does, I only see benefits of the program, not negatives. And with competition, we wont see one yearly purposefully gimped "to-not-mess-with-the-flagship" nexus, we will see truly powerful Nexus devices since they will have competition among themselves.

I still think LG is going to be the one to bring the "best hardware" to the Nexus phones this year. They dont have a flagship reputation to worry about and they are desperate for the attention.

Google really needs to push carriers more as far as updates, as do the manufacturers. The carrier bloatware should be downloadable apps in the Play Store, not something that is forced on the phone.

As far as the rumored Nexus devices so far, LGs sounds the best, since the Galaxy Nexus 2 doesnt seem to be much of a bump up in the

Samsung has to protect their flagship device sales which is where the big money is at. Im hoping to see at least a 4212 exynos in the next G Nexus. It may be a 4412, but I really dont think it has a chance of being an A15. A 4212 with newer GPU and the new RGB HD screen with a good 8mpx camera and like $400-500 price tag will get me to look at it.

I'd be surprised if anyone hits harder in the hardware side than LG. They have the most to gain from a popular Nexus device.

What about a Nokia nexus. That would hurt but be so powerful especially with pureview

I hope these so called nexuses are better than all-most of the phones out there with qualities like fastest fine, 4.8+ inch screen, high res, big battery, etc.
And all in one phone (hint,hint) :|

Oh, that's kinda my serious face.
