New Google Nexus phone could arrive in the next month

Some months back, a leaked roadmap indicated that Google is heading towards releasing multiple Google phones rather than a single flagship model. The first of those could be here within the month. At least, that's what multiple sources are now suggesting.

The Android and Me site has had its ear to the ground, bringing together three (anonymous) industry sources and coming to the conclusion that we could see new Google hardware in the next 30 days.

It claims the device has 'already leaked' on blogs and it will launch with a new version of Android, an update of Jelly Bean rather than a jump up to Android 5.0. That version should be 4.2, which is already being tested by Google. New features could include multi-user logins, enhanced Maps, an enhanced dialler and enhanced camera features.

The announcement is likely to be revealed by Google's Andy Rubin at AllThingsD: Dive Into Mobile, which takes place at the end of this month. The phone should then go on sale in November in unlocked form, just in time for the Christmas market. As for the maker of the hardware, that's pointing to LG, using the LG Optimus G as the basis for the new phone.

That's not the end of the story though. Those multiple devices should still follow, including a refreshed-entry-level Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 with 3G, and a Nexus 10 tablet. A HTC-made Nexus 5 has also been rumoured.

All speculation so far, but with so much of it, you suspect it contains a good amount of fact. We'll find out for sure in a matter of weeks.
