Is This the New Nexus?

November 11, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

This pic, found on a Best Buy Mobile leaflet, has caused quite a stir amongst the Android community. Its the green on black notification bar and what appears to be a front facing camera  that has got the chins wagging and the keys tapping. Both are strongly suggestive that we are seeing something quite new here, very Possibly the new Nexus.

Although probably not Android 3.0, its not unlikely that this is 2.3, which makes sense seeing that its more than likely that the next Nexus will run a vanilla OS.

The front facing camera probably contains the most clues and has caused a lot of people to agree that this is the new Google/Samsung/T-Mobile Superphone the Nexus 2, or Nexus S if you prefer.

A number of sites have speculated that the phone has been spotted before under the name Samsung GT-i9020 which if true would suggest strong links with the Galaxy S, which would not be a bad thing at all. There’s certainly a big difference in shape but who knows what lurks inside – its been rumored that the Nexus 2 will have everything from a 1.2 to a 2.0Ghz CPU. Take a good look, we may well be seeing a lot of these around very soon.
