The device’s rumored launch date also goes past Samsung Galaxy S2 and the expected release of Apple iPhone 5. 

The Google Nexus 4G may arrive late but the smartphone, called “Absolute Monster”, is expected to launch with mind-blowing features that could end all possible competitions.

Here are the reasons why the Nexus 4G AT&T can be one of the greatest smartphones ever made.

Device Camera: The Nexus 4G AT&T is rumored to sport a 5MP rear camera with 1080p HD video recording and playback which will provide sensor support and optimum output even during a low-light situation, and a front-facing 1MP camera for wide-screen video chat. The smartphone is also said to have an enhanced S3D video capability for supporting 3D display and 3D recording. Apple iPhone 5, in comparison, is rumored to have an 8MP dual-LED flash camera with 1080p video playback and panoramic photo capture. The Galaxy S2, presently sports an 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p video capture capability and an additional 2 MP front-facing camera for video chat. The HTC Blast, a concept phone, can be a tough competitor as rumors have suggested that the device will arrive with a 12 MP rear-facing camera and a 3.2 MP front-facing camera.

Operating System: The Google Nexus 4G AT&T, when released, is rumored to be the first ever Android smartphone to arrive with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The next best competitor to it is Apple's iOS 5 platform. Others, in comparison, operate on previous Android versions. Smartphones like Samsung’s Galaxy S2 and Motorola’s Droid Bionic run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). HTC’s Blast is likely to run on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).

Screen Dimension: The Google Nexus 4G AT&T will come with a huge 4.5-5-inch screen that will support edge-to-edge video calling. The screen size could play a major role in the smartphone battle as Apple’s iPhone 5 is also rumored to increase its screen size to a bigger edge-to-edge 3.7 to 4-inch curved glass, compared to iPhone 4’s 3.5-inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a superb 4.3-inch display.

It is yet to be decided if the processor will be of either 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz. The krait based Snapdragon processor will have the ability to run at a lightning speed of 2.5 GHz per core at the least power which will make it more than a hundred times faster than a normal ARM based CPU. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 Mali-400MP GPU Orion chipset and has a 16/32GB internal memory configuration with 1GB RAM. The HTC Blast is also rumored to be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor, similar to the Samsung Hercules but the Hercules will have an APQ8060 processor.
