Since we heard about the Google [GOOG] Nexus One mobile phone a few days ago, we haven’t really had any details about the specifications on the Google Phone, until the guys over at These Are The Droids analyzed the Android 2.1 ROM for the Nexus One.
They have managed to identify a number of interesting specifications from the ROM, which include a Snapdragon processor, so it is probably a 1GHz processor, plus an auto focus camera with built in LED flash.
Other details include OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics, a built in accelerometer, a magnetic compass, WiFi, Bluetooth, a stereo FM speaker and a noise cancellation chipset.
So it looks like the Google Nexus One will also come with a built in FM tuner, and it looks like the WiFi will be 802.11n as opposed to 802.11g which is in the majority of smartphones available today.
Another interesting feature is a built in proximity sensor, or light sensor, although we are not quite sure what that would be used for as yet it does sound very interesting.
Are Google going to keep us guessing until next year? I think Google has learnt something from Apple as all these leaks and information are drawing a lot of attention to the Nexus one.
Lets hope we get an official announcement from Google soon on when we are going to the the Nexus One in the shops, I suspect this is going to be one very popular Android handset. Have a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
