GSMArena claims to have been tipped-off that the next Nexus device will be a 5in smartphone based on the forthcoming HTC Droid Incredible X.
As well as a 5in screen, the phone would have 2GB RAM, 64GB memory and a 1080p display.
Based on the HTC Droid Incredible X, a Nexus 5 could have a whopping 480 pixel per inch (PPI) screen, which would be rather impressive to say the least. The iPhone 5, albeit with a much smaller screen, has a 326 PPI.
This Nexus 5 phone would launch with a new version of the Android OS, which would bring subtle rather than wholesale updates to Android Jelly Bean.
Google re-launched its Nexus family of products in July this year with the Google Nexus 7 tablet – the 7 referring to the 7in screen size of the tablet – the first Google-branded tablet.
