The Google Nexus 4G, the next Nexus phone that will be offered by the search engine giant, is rumored to be the smartphone that will take down the iPhone.
That being the case, if these rumors are to hold any water, then it will mean that the Google Nexus 4G will need to have significantly bumped up its features and specifications to be able to provide the iPhone 5 with any competition.
So far, what is known about Google Nexus 4G is that it will come with the most up to date Android software (the Android 4.0 – also known as Ice Cream Sandwich) and will feature a design that will be super-thin.
The new smartphone will also include 1080p HD video playback and capture, 1GB of RAM, and 4G LTE radio. It should also come with a chip for near-field communication (NFC).
Moreover, it is believed that this mobile device will have some hot new 3D features, such as the head tracking Open GL, which recognizes and senses facial expressions. The USB features will be particularly appealing to gamers who will be able to plug their phone into external hardware devices, such as a controller for Xbox.
Conversely, consumers shouldn’t be led to believe that iPhone 5 has fallen behind the times. In fact, Apple has been building a number of notable new features for their next iPhone, which include iCloud integration and a new version of iOS.
It will also have an A5 processor, which was designed to rival the dual core processors that are seen in the majority of Android smartphones. The iPhone 5 will also feature an upgrade from the 5-megapixel camera from the iPhone 4, bringing it to an 8-megapixel model. Its screen will be large and will be end-to-end on the device.
