Before getting into it, allow me to preface this with a warning; this is only a rumor and has not be validated in any way, shape, or form.  Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to the rumor.  GSM Arena is reporting they have received a tip that has HTC building the next Nexus smartphone.  The rumor doesn’t stop there, they go even further, stating the phone will carry some rather beefy specs.  According to the tipster, the next Nexus phone will feature a 1080p display, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 12mp rear-facing camera with 2mp front-facing, 2500 mAh battery, 64gb of internal storage, and of course LTE.  Sadly, the rumors did not include an expected release date or announcement date; though if history is any indication, we will likely see an announcement within the next 60 days.
