In the last few days, there’s been no shortage of speculation regarding the final specs of Google’s Nexus one. But, piece by piece, the spec sheet is beginning to fill in as we’ve scoured the web and consulted one of our very own Wirefly executives who managed to get his hands on the second-coming of the Google phone for a fleeting few minutes. Here’s what we’ve been able to cobble together (to be taken with a grain of salt, of course):

  • Android version 2.1
  • 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • OLED touchscreen (no multitouch support built-in)
  • 3G support
  • WiFi 802.11n
  • 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, geo-tagging
  • FM Tuner
  • Proximity & ambient light sensor, magnetic compass, accelerometer
  • OpenGL ES 2.0-capable graphics
  • Loaded with Google Navigation and Google Goggles

Although the Nexus One looks more or less like your run-of-the-mill HTC Android phone, some line items on our makeshift spec sheet just might have caught your eye.

All reports agree that the Nexus One is lightening fast thanks to the more or less confirmed inclusion of a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. For those keeping score, that’s nearly twice the speed of the already impressively fast Motorola Droid.

Running the latest and greatest brew of Android (2.1), the Nexus One will come armed with at least a few new Android OS features including five home screens and a WebOS-esque thumbnail view allowing for quick and easy navigation between home screens. The Google phone will unsurprisingly come loaded with Google Navigation (first seen on the Motorola Droid) and will also reportedly be equipped with Google Goggles — allowing Nexus users to search the web by snapping a picture.

It may very well be overkill, but the Nexus One is rumored to have an 802.11n chipset, allowing the phone to connect to a blindingly fast 802.11n WiFi network instead of the current 802.11g standard for cell phones. With OpenGL ES 2.0 support, the Google phone will appeal to those inclined to mobile gaming, delivering graphical power on par with that of the iPhone 3GS.
