Web reports say Google Nexus 4G will feature huge 720p HD screen.

Boy Genius Report says the device is set for launch around Thanksgiving, and will arrive with a dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU based an OMAP 4460 or a low-power 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon.

The display won't feature physical menu buttons, like the Nexus S. The report also suggests the phone will come with 4G LTE radio, 1GB of RAM, 1080p HD video capture and playback, a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel rear camera with 'superior' low-light performance.

OS wise, the device will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and could be the flagship for the platform like XOOM was for Honeycomb.

If correct, it will be interesting to see which handset maker gets to build it. The first Nexus was by HTC, the second by Samsung and the first Google-endorse tablet was by Motorola.

Anyone for LG?
