Google is on a roll these days. If their recently released Android Jelly Bean update was not enough, they’re busy working on the next Nexus device already. In fact, many rumors suggest that the next Nexus smartphone might be unveiled to the public by as early as October 29th. The device will be made by LG rather than Samsung marking a huge change in the Nexus lines of phones. However, no matter who manufactures the device, one thing's for sure that the upcoming Nexus smartphone is going to make waves in the world of gadgets.

Apple, Google’s fiercest competitor in the smartphone race is not basking in the success of iPhone 5. They know that Google can come up with something radical that will give them a tough fight no matter how classy they are in front of their fanboys and fangirls. Furthermore, there is very little doubt that the upcoming Nexus smartphone is going to steal the show from Apple.

So, what’s so great about the next Google Nexus smartphone that will make an iPhone 5-killer? Well, let’s find out:

Android is dominating

Google’s Android already has grabbed around half the worldwide smartphone market share and it’s growing strong each and every year. While Apple fanboys and fangirls throng to the Apple Store in line to grab a fresh iPhone or iPad, Android lovers simply have to go to a gadget shop and choose for a smartphone that suits their needs and budget. They can choose a low-end one or a really fancy one, there’s no fixed price like on Apple products.

Slightly deviating from the norm comes the Nexus line of phones. They are, as we say, the best way Google can kill the iPhone. What makes the Nexus line so special is that it is uniquely handcrafted by Google and it comes with the latest hardware and yes the latest Android OS that’s out there. 

Furthermore, Google aims to perfectly blend in the hardware and the software making the device a perfect iPhone-killer. That is why Nexus smartphones get a huge amount of coverage. Well, not at par with the Apple product line, but nonetheless, it’s something that grabs your attention.

The upcoming Google Nexus smartphone will come with awesome specs

Made by LG instead of Samsung this time, the upcoming device will most likely feature a 4.7-inch display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and Android 4.2 OS. This will make it a tough competitor to the iPhone 5, which comes with a smaller display and lesser features. More rumors suggest that Nexus 4 will come with 2 GB of RAM, LCD True HD IPS+ display, 1280 x 768 resolution and more. This compared to the iPhone 5 is a lot more to boast of.  Whether or not these rumors are true, we’re sure of one thing that Google will come up with something we’d be really impressed with.

It may come with Android 4.2 'Key Lime Pie'

While many Droid fans are impatiently awaiting Jelly Bean to land on their brand-new smartphones, Google will be launching the next Nexus phone with the latest version of their OS. Android 4.2 will come with an enhanced Gmail, a revamped Gallery, and a multiple accounts feature. The multiple accounts enhancement will let you and your family members use the same device by simply logging in with their respective Gmail accounts. The features are not as breathtaking as everyone expected them to be; however, Android 4.2 'Key Lime Pie' will surely offer some nice improvements over the popular Jelly Bean version.

There is very little doubt that the next Nexus smartphone is going to create a disruption in the mobile market. It might not become an all-time bestseller, it will, however, steal the limelight off of iPhone 5. Definitely worth watching out for even if you’re not an Android user.

  1. Looks like Google and Samsung and getting more and more close to Apple and they are working a lot faster than Apple also, coming with new gadgets in a short time. Google went with LG this time probably because they think that if they would continued with Samsung, they would've helped them gain more market share and they have plenty, now Google wants their own piece of pie.
