    There's a new rumor going on around the blogosphere that the new Nexus will be released within the next 30 days. The device is speculated to be unveiled at the Dive Into Mobile All Things D event. The OS is android key lime pie. It's a rumor though.

    I read today that it may be a version of JB. Probably 4.2.2
    Also I read that the LG E960 may be the phone.

    Sooo many rumours.:rolleyes:

    Some think it will be a 5" display HTC.

    We'll find out soon though.;)

    All I know, I won't be buying a 5" screened phone unless I get my fingers surgically lengthened. Not interested in anything larger than the current SGN. In fact, I would LOVE if someone put the exact same size screen of the current SGN in a near side bezel-less case.

    If LG re-badges the Optimus G as a Nexus I'll be all over it.

    Not a fan of LG, but they can build a beast when they want to, and that thing is the most impressive phone to date IMO.

    I SERIOUSLY don't think we could get this close without a leak...

    IF there is something near , near means December...



    either way I'm a VZW, person and I doubt they'll be another VZW nexus :(

    i agree with the above for the most part. I just don't see it happening and if it does happen it will feel as though it's rushed to me. I realize that there has been a new Nexus typically every year but after this G Nex VZW debacle i just don't have a lot of faith in the situation. I definitely don't see another CDMA G Nex happening.

    After waiting two months for the SGN to actually be released after it was announced, I'm skeptical to say the least.

    I think I could do a 5" phone, but not bigger. I'd need to handle one quite a bit before pulling the trigger to make sure. The 4.65" on the SGN is just about perfect.

    So true. The GNex screen is a stretch for me but just possible to use one handed. Same screen, less bezel would be the perfect next phone. Anyway my contract has another year so will be skipping this round of Nexus :(

    Since forums are sorted by manufacturer, it would be a challenge to create new Nexus device forums before we know who all's making what. I will, however, forward your request for an Samsung Galaxy Nexus Plus forum, since that seems to be the best scenario so far :)

    All I know is that if this means the developers out there get ahold of a new or upgraded OS, then we'll get ROMs of it that much sooner. ALL HAIL THE DEVELOPER UNIVERSE!

    I guarantee that Key lime pie isn't coming out within a month. That's ridiculous. JB just came out and most devices don't even have it yet. Not to mention that Google has said that they are slowing the pace of release on OS's.

    Yeah the rumors are just all over the place. I just wished we knew for sure if its going to be 5 or just one Nexus device.

    We already got a new Nexus this year. It's called the Nexus 7. That was the development platform for JB.

    I have a hard time believing we'll be getting KLP so soon. Anything is possible, but you'd generally see leaks starting 6 mos ahead of time.

    Android 101:

    1.) Nothing happens fast
    2.) Nothing is as it seems
    3.) Initial release date rumors are never right
    4.) Dates change like underwear for a multitude of reasons we will never know.
    5.) No date is firm until there's an official announcement.


    There's a reason for the broad skepticism, we've been through this before and we're becoming wise to the ways of Android. :smokingsomb:

    Heaven knows we found that out in the epic thread, didn't we?

    Indeed we did. That thread was the quintessential example of those bullet points. :D

    If we had a new forum created for every rumored phone there would be madness.

    Yes, a new nexus will come, but let's wait for solid details first

    I'm finding it hard to accept these rumors to be honest. Seems to be way too quiet compared to the last one...
