A new Nexus-branded phone could be unveiled within a matter of weeks, reports suggest.
According to insiders cited by Android and Me, the as-yet-unnamed handset is likely to feature a new version of the current iteration of Google’s OS, AKA Jelly Bean, rather than the next Key Lime Pie edition.
That jars with earlier Nexus phones which have debuted hitherto unseen versions of the platform, in keeping with Google’s policy of using its own-branded handsets and tablets to set the standard for subsequent devices running the new version from its manufacturing partners.
Samsung, which manufactured the Galaxy Nexus on Google’s behalf, is once again reputed to have been enlisted to make the next Nexus smartphone, with the All Things D: Dive into Mobile event on October 29th and 30th mooted as the most likely venue for the phone’s debut.
However, this appears principally based on the fact that Google’s smartphone mover and shaker Andy Rubin traditionally uses the expo to announce big Android-related news.
