The upcoming Nexus is made by LG and reportedly carries the model number of E960. It runs Android 4.1.2 and ships unlocked, allowing the GSM phone to run on both AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. It apparently sports a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Adreno 320 GPU, meaning it’s probably a bit of a powerhouse.
The phone looks similar to the Galaxy Nexus with a rounded, slightly bulky body. No word on the screen, but it’s probably packing a pretty high density screen.
With an official unveiling likely weeks away, more details will probably leak out. The Nexus phones have never sold in massive, iPhone-killing numbers, and this one, as it’s strangely made by LG, will probably not break any sales records. Still, with class-leading specs, it will likely be a favorite among Android fans and developers. Rumors state the phone will be called the LG Optimus G Nexus — let’s hope that’s wrong ’cause it’s horrible.
