Is this the Next Gen nexus Smartphone?
So, To put it clear, till now there have been no official announcement of a new Nexus device except maybe, the Google version of the Galaxy SIV.
However, I spotted a Strange Nexus device in the New Google+ Ad which is very similar to the current nexus 4 but with a signficantly smaller bezel

Smartphones of the future might be coated in industrial sapphire instead of glass — it’s made from corundum, one of the hardest natural minerals in the world, second only to diamonds.
The lab-grown substance, made by GT Advanced Technologies, is a miracle for today’s smartphones given its scratch-proof properties. The company claims GT ASF Grown Sapphire is about two and a half times the strength and scratch resistance of the popular Gorilla Glass, which is currently used to protect iPhones and other high-tech smartphones.
It’s virtually scratch-free,” said Jeff Nestel-Patt, marketing director for the company.
And screens wearing these gems may come as early as this year, said Eric Virey, an analyst for market research firm Yole Developement
“I’m convinced that some will start testing the water and release some high-end smartphones using sapphire in 2013,” Virey said.
Nearly unbreakable smartphone screens would be a welcome change for anyone who’s ever dropped a new Android-powered gizmo or iPhone only to watch their expensive gadget crack or shatter.
But let the buyer beware: Sapphire-fronted smartphones are likely to be even more expensive. Gorilla Glass screens cost less than $3, according to Technology Review, while a sapphire display could about $30.
Expensive, yes. But that’s an asset you can hold in your hand.

Today, IGN confirmed that season one of Telltale’s The Walking Dead will be coming to PlayStation Vita this year.
In an interview with PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa, it was revealed that Telltale’s critical and commercial smash-hit adventure series would migrate to Sony’s new handheld.
“Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message,” Mesa told IGN in an extensive interview about all things PlayStation Vita.
In talking about how the Vita could offer unique experiences, Mesa continued speaking about the Vita iteration of the game. “Again, a good example is with The Walking Dead. We think that the emotion and the immersive experiences you’re going to get there, wherever you’re sitting, if you’re in your living room and playing on your Vita or sitting at a café or at the bus stop and playing this, you get that shock or fright. I think that’s going to be important. That’s what we want to deliver as you’re playing.”
The release window for The Walking Dead season one on PlayStation Vita has yet to be determined. It’s also unclear if it will be released episodically – as it was on PS3 – or all at once. However, we at least know it’s coming, soon or later.
