    Coming from an OG Droid, I'm not worried in the least. Maybe it will even make for a more balanced phone from a COG perspective.

    It's not as if there are any viable alternatives out there anyway if you want vanilla LTE.

    actually want it to be thicker to maybe level out the back. i really dislike the way my charge has a hump on its back. it will not lay flat on desk and always wants to rotate the screen when i don't want it rotated.
    It will be thinner than the Charge.

    Anyone expecting massive changes for the Verizon version shouldn't get your hopes up. The only time in the past Google has messed with the specs of a phone has been the screen. Anything past over/under clocking and a different screen will be out of the question if history has shown us anything!

    I actually do think there are two different devices. The one that was unveiled yesterday had a notification light underneath the bottom bezel. But didn't SUBDawg say that the notification indicator was on the top? Also, he said 8 megapixel camera. Maybe he was mistaken, but it seems that the event purposely stayed away from mentioning any specs of the LTE version.

    Im pretty sure the LTE version will just be thicker and LTE branding on the back. Thats its. It would be dumb to make different Nexus service with very differwnt specs.

    People have been using the Verizon LTE version. It is real and it is exactly what we saw yesterday:

    Check out the "4G LTE" logo on the back. That is Verizon's branding right there.

    Nice find. But that doesn't mean that the internal specs might be a little different. Or that the camera/notification light are different as well.

    I think he's referring to our Nexus being better than the Nexus S, not the version of the GN that other carriers are getting.

    Good point. My gut is telling me it's gonna be the same. Who else did Samsung build a LTE Galaxy Nexus for in the US? It's gonna have the same specs.

    Now does what you say even make sense? You really think he was saying this phone is better than a phone form over a year ago? smh

    The reports a few weeks ago said the LED was on the bottom. It's in this forum actually.

    LOL you people are really still thinking there is two different version of this device other then one having a LTE radio in it? You've got way too much time on your hands. I'm not trolling at all but common guys lets think about this for a second. When has Google EVER came out with two different versions of a Nexus? NEVER AND THEY NEVER WILL.

    Yes, actually it makes plenty of sense. Panda was saying people jealous about Sprint getting a Nexus should relax because Verizon's eventual Nexus would be amazing. I remember when he tweeted this.

    Should I be "SMH" at you?

    Your argument is flawed. This is the third nexus Google has ever released, so saying that because something has never happened in the past, it cannot happen now is ridiculous. Also, there are already two versions of the phone: one for LTE and one for HSPA+. That is two different versions of a nexus right there.

    +1

    While I don't think there will be any variation in hardware other than the LTE radio, saying that it's impossible is naive.

    They specifically said in the presentation that it's 8.94mm thin for the HSPA version. By saying that specifically...you can infer that the LTE version will be slightly thicker. If you look at those pics posted on the last page:

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/1...04779473?hl=en

    the LTE version seems to have a slightly less pronounced hump on the bottom...so maybe it really is just a matter of 1 or 2 mm...but they can't announce they have a 10-11mm phone when their thinnest version is under 9. You especially can't say 10mm, when the RAZR clocks in at 7.1mm.

    tl;dr The LTE version will be thicker due to the LTE radio. That is all.

    I still think that there could be more to the LTE/Verizon version than just thickness.

    Not to blow smoke up my own A$$ here, but I feel I made some rather good points in opening post.

    And just like Panda mentioned, this Nexus will be better than some of the other ones which ties to whatever specs SUB-dawg mentioned. It's possible.

    That's all I'm saying, it's possible. Something could happen. Companies have released brother/sister versions of US based phones before, with slightly different specs. Why wouldn't Nexus be treated the same? because of history, but maybe that will change?

    Right now...as fact, all we know is that YES, it WILL be thicker than the HSPA+ version. And the article that mentions that (and Engadget article), says that the employee did not elaborate anymore on the LTE device.

    Why not? Does Verizon have its on NDA for this device? Probably and why?

    I'm just keeping an open mind, I'm not hoping for anything better, but if the LTE version does come wrapped up in something better then that will be quite the bombshell and something I'm quite open to.

    I also edited the first post with a picture that shows a notification that the LTE version may have different specs. The "may" part shows that maybe no one quite knows what Verizon has in store for this device. Knowing Verizon though, they for sure have their own agenda with this Nexus phone.

    Well, I personally think that Verizon version is probably the closest one to the original spec since they are the one getting it first. If there are any variations ones available later would be more likely the variations.
