An upcoming Nexus HD could be the firstAndroid Ice Cream Sandwich phone. It isn't news that Google is working on a new Nexus smartphone to be powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich (Android Chief Andy Rubin semi-announced it last month), but specifications and focus area (the Nexus S 4G focuses on NFC, and will soon become a Google Wallet phone) has been up in the air so far. 

It'll offer a 720p HD "monster-sized" screen (no word on glasses-free 3D yet), either a TI OMAP 4660 or a 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon chipset, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording, 1-megapixel front-facing camera, and 1GB of RAM. It wouldn't make sense for Google to build a Nexus specifically for Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network. However, BGR's source can't confirm 100% that this phone will receive the Nexus brand.

A report that popped up on Boy Genius Report today showed some stats for Google’s upcoming Nexus 4G and without really naming a source for the information or a carrier that will be selling the phone.  The Nexus 4G is a “super-thin” Smartphone that appears to have no buttons, like the ones under the screen on previous versions, a dual-core processor and running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).  

Verizon has the only commercial LTE network right now, but the Nexus One didn’t go over too well there, so Verizon isn’t high on the list of carriers, for now.  The home, search, back and menu buttons are now going to be part of the software on the Android phone.  The point behind Google moving from physical buttons is said to be part of their initiative to blend the Android Tablet and Android Phone software platforms with the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
