I recently saw an interesting article that was arguing the need for a new Nexus at this years Google I/O. It got me thinking that Google might not need to come out with a brand new Nexus, just do some slight upgrades on the current one. There is no denying that the current Nexus is top tier device, especially when you consider the development that comes along with a Nexus. LG has made an amazing looking and from what I am told amazing feeling devices. I personally love glass on phones, I know its prone to damage, but it looks so damn nice.
So here is my question to you... would you be okay with Google releasing a Nexus "4S" that would include LTE radios, slightly upgraded hardware and possibly a CDMA version (even though I firmly believe Verizon will never see another Nexus) and a bigger battery. Yes that sounds like a totally new phone when it comes down to it, but if LG keeps the same looks, just beefing up the internals I believe that I would be a phone that would easily top almost every device out there. Hell, I would be perfectly happy with a Nexus 4 that had LTE and bigger battery. We all know LTE eats battery quicker than GSM or HSPA+ so the addition of LTE would need a bigger battery.
So what do you think? Smart to do, following the "Apple line of progression" even if its just for this model? Lets hear what would you like to see.
