Rumor Roundup on the New Google Nexus Smartphone


There is no doubt that Google with its Nexus brand brings users one of the impressive smartphones of the year. One of the reasons for the success of the Google Nexus line is the company’s focus on quality and not compromising on providing users the best experience with the latest technology available. Every year Google launches one Nexus smartphone in the last quarter and this year is not different. One of the interesting aspects about the Google Nexus lineup is that it is not produced by Google but always in partnership with other smartphone companies. With the company having worked with tech giants like Samsung, Motorola and HTC, which company are they going to work with this time around is under speculation.


Well different rumors swirling around in tech town right now suggest that we may be in for a surprise from Google this time around with the company bringing out two Nexus smartphones in collaboration with two different companies. According to Android Police the company is working on LG for a 5.2-inch smartphone which is code named Bullhead and on a 5.7-inch display smartphone with Huawei code named Angelr. Well it seems as if the company is keeping with the current trends of smartphone sizes by brining a phablet and a sizeable smartphone.

Well nothing definitive about the specifications of the devices is known but let’s have a look at some of the reported specifications. LG Nexus will sport a 5.2-inch display and will be equipped with a 808 Snapdragon processor. Along with this it will have a 2700mAh battery. Not much about the other features is known at the moment but we will update you as soon as more information surfaces. LG can make this smartphone impressive by adding a great camera feature which they are currently using in their own flagships.


Google is amping up the game with Huawei Nexus. Huawei’s latest lineup does give an idea as to what can we expect from this collaboration, a sleek and well designed metal body smartphone. The smartphone will sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. Along with that it will be equipped with Qualacomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3 GB RAM and a 32 or 64 GB internal storage. As far as the camera features go it will sport a 13 MP main camera and 2 MP selfie shooter, which does sound a bit disappointing but these are just rumored specs, the end product may turn out to be totally different than the one speculated. We hope so that’s the case with the camera specs and the companies whip up something really striking.

Both the smartphones will be launched with Google latest OS which is the Android M. As far as the launch date goes, we will be looking at these smartphones somewhere in October or November, wouldn’t that make the holiday season much more sweeter.
