It is surely going to be better than Nexus 4’s 768 X 1280 screen resolution. 2013 surely will bring a trend of 1080p resolution HD screens as a characteristic feature of high end smart phones.
It cannot be less than Qualcomm S4 Pro quad core processor as the features rumored to be part of Nexus 5 can’t be supported at any cost by a processor of smaller specification.
