Googleis reportedly on the brink of launching a new Nexus smartphone.
The technology giant, behind the hugely popular Android operating system, is claimed by TechRadar to be limbering up to launch a new flagship Jelly Bean-powered* handset.
The usually reliable site claims that multiple sources have indicated that the big G is getting ready to bring its new handset to market - with Samsung, HTC and LG all rumoured to be manufacturing partners for the device.
Google is hoping to build on the success of its popular Nexus 7 mini-tablet (pictured), which has been selling well as a more affordable iPad alternative.
The company has not officially confirmed that it is working on a new device.
*Jelly Bean is the name of the latest version of the Android operating system by the way - it isn't going to run on sweets.
