    Was going off the idea that the Nexus line is proposed to Google before being cleared. This means that they tend to use some of the higher advanced hardware. Particularly considering the fact that the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4 both needed 2 separate lines for LTE (still waiting on the N4) this chip may be used in the next Nexus. Google is a fan of unifying devices and very well may try to make 1 line with 1 set of hardware. Plus a large portion of manufacturers may move to this as it solves an issue in the manufacturing process. It's all $$ and if you can have 1 process make all spectrums then why not?
