At Google I/O event in June 2012, the search engine giant unveiled the Nexus 7 tablet, the fruit of the Mountain View-based company's collaboration with ASUS.  This tablet was the first terminal in the world to come pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

TalkAndroid announced in May that Google will launch 5 Nexus  on November 5th, to celebrate Android's fifth birthday. TalkAndroid was quoting an a trustworthy source. Even though a move like this coming from Google will be impressive in terms of marketing, no one can guarantee the market success of the new Nexus line-up.

So far, both LG and HTC expressed their interest in developing the next-gen Google developer smartphone. Since the creators of Android are launching a Nexus smartphone each year, the next-gen shouldn't be too far away. But maybe the Nexus 7 will be the only Nexus device we'll get this year.

HTC has build the first Google Nexus, then Google contracted Samsung for Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus.

Even though there are voices saying that Samsung will be the company to develop the fourth Google Nexus smartphone (GT-I9260), it seems that HTC will be the company to build it, after all.

Rumor has it that the next-gen Google dev phone will be a device with a 5-inch display with 1,080p full HD resolution and will be named Nexus 5. It seems that it will come with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and it will run on Android 4.1.2 out of the box.

HTC Nexus 5 will be powered by a 2,500 mAh battery and, of course, it will come with 4G LTE support.

This is terrific news. HTC won't be short changing the hardware because they have a competing product out in 6 months. Good choice by Google. Actually an excellent one in that were the Nexus released by HTC as the One S even, it would have sold twice what it originally did and were they to have made it the One X... Apple would be throwing the kitchen sink at them instead of Samsung.
