Nexus smartphones for 2015 from Huawei and LG leak again!

The rumors and leaks for the new Nexus smartphones have been many, but none can exceed the awesomeness level of the render of the Huawei Nexus and the photo of the LG Nexus that appeared on the Internet. After some incipient renders were leaked last week, new documents seem to hit the Internet, which can only mean that the devices will be announced soon.

The premium Huawei Nexus device showed in a render below is coming from USwitch. It appears that the device will be clad in a metallic body with a bulging top side where the rear camera is.

For reference, the LG device presents a camera in the middle of the top side. These Nexus smartphones are quite different, at least when it comes to their looks.

Minuscule protruding glass panels at the top and bottom are also said to exist on the device. The rear camera has a dual-LED flash module but there is no autofocus sensor in sight. The fingerprint sensor is shaped like a circle in the middle of the back.

LG Nexus 2015 has the same fingerprint sensor on the back, as seen in the below photo leaked by Marques Brownlee. The leaked device is a white-colored smartphone with a protruding camera on the back with a dual-LED flash and laser autofocus. There is also a Nexus logo presented on the back of the device, same as with previous models.

Possible specs for the Nexus smartphones?

Some of the leaked specs of the new Nexus Devices present interesting tech specs. The LG Google Nexus 5 2015 reportedly has a 5.2-inch display and is 8mm slim. Some AnTuTu benchmarks put the device at the top of the list for 2015 with a claimed score of 85530, the highest so far.

The Huawei Nexus is said to have a 5.7-inch display, front-facing speakers, USB Type-C, and the fingerprint scanner as well.

It is not official at the moment when Google will announce the devices, but, as we previously said, the release date can’t be far away. Last year the new Nexus smartphones were launched in October along with Android Lollipop, therefore it is expected that the new Nexus devices will make an official appearance as late as October.

Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 specs possibly leaked in China

There may be some new Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 devices coming at us this year, maybe as soon as next month. This is why some rumors have already spread and there are even some very detailed leaks floating around on the Interwebs. One of these leaks comes from GizmoChina where the specs for the new Google devices may have been exposed.

 

Nexus

 

 

The new LG Nexus 5 phone is rumored to have a 5.2” 1080p P-OLED screen and it will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 620 processor accompanied by up to 4 GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage with no microSD slot support. It will have a non-removable 3180 mAh battery, a 13MP camera on the back with an f/1.8 aperture lens and optical image stabilization, plus a 4MP front camera.

 

There is also a rumor regarding the fingerprint scanner located into a rear power button, but nothing is really sure yet.

 

The Nexus 5 should have an aluminum frame and chamfered edges plus a plastic back cover and front-facing stereo speakers.

Nexus 6 2nd edition – premium feel at an affordable price

 

The other leaked device, a Huawei Nexus – possibly a new Nexus 6 – has a 5.7” WQHD AMOLED display with a Snapdragon 620 (or possibly a Snapdragon 808/820). It is rumored to present a unibody design made of metal plus a 21MP primary camera and Rezence/WiPower wireless charging features.

 

Both devices are supposed to charge wirelessly and via quick charging and they support NFC. The new Nexus 5 should cost around $300-400, whereas the other device should be a little more expensive.

 

You should take this news with a grain or two of salt, as GizmoChina did not reveal a source for this information, which means some of it can be fake. If it is accurate though, this could present some interesting new devices to the flagship market.

[The rumor mill] Google to launch two Nexus smartphones this year – LG Bullhead and Huawei Angler – no news on a new flagship tablet

The rumor mill has it that Google will not launch a Nexus tablet this year and that the next devices for the line will be an LG smartphone and a Huawei phablet. After the Android Silver program crashed and burned before actually coming to fruition, Google redressed themselves with Nexus 6, one of the more expensive and huge smartphones they have ever made. It appears that the Nexus program is in full shape and running better than ever- so much better in fact that two new phones may come out this year. No news on a tablet though.

No official news has been announced yet so take all of this with a grain (or two) of salt. The following specs are just tentative ones, but if the devices are really in production, they must be updated and sorted out already.

The LG Bullhead (*keeping up with sea code names) is supposed to have a 5.2” display powered by a 2700 mAh battery. There is no news on the ARM chip or storage capacity but rumor has it that LG is thinking about a Snapdragon 808 ( a hexa-core used in LG G4).

Huawei Angler, the slightly larger smartphone/phablet would have a 5.7” screen and it should be running on a Snapdragon 810. The battery capacity is said to be 3500 mAh.

Both Nexus devices should make an appearance around October, be it in this (rumored) shape or another. This information dates back from April, as AndroidPolice sources say, and it appears that Nexus 9 will remain a flagship tablet for another year.
