The handset currently informally known as the HTC One X 5 could make its way to market as the next phone in the Google-branded Nexus series, speculation suggests.

According to a source cited by GSMArena, the One X 5 has been earmarked by the search giant as the smartphone to replace its last effort, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Assuming the tip-off is on-the-money, the move would see Google ditch Samsung, which manufactured the last two Nexus handsets, in favour of the company that was initially enlisted to create Nexus smartphones on Google’s behalf.

Specs for the phone aren’t confirmed. But speculation suggests it could be most lavishly equipped Android kit so far, teaming a Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, a 12-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper.

A five-inch screen is also expected to be on board – taking the kit firmly into phablet territory – as is 4G LTE support and a 2,500 mAh battery.

Perhaps surprisingly for a Google phone, the Nexus 5 is thought likely to run Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 out of the box rather than debut another major new iteration of Android like each Nexus has before it has done.
