LG is the confirmed manufacturer of the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) but how will it the new smartphone look like? Unlike any other.
The upcoming Google Nexus smartphone is making major waves online, with people regularly checking on any updates about the phone. While not much has been revealed about the gadget, it has been confirmed that the South Korean tech company will be developing the Nexus 5 (2015).
A source has revealed to AndroidPIT that the look and feel of the new smartphone will not be patterned after its current flagship LG G4. It will be “based on an unreleased prototype.”
This will be a different step for the Google phone given former manufacturers usually follow the blueprint of its current flagship smartphones.
So far, no features have been confirmed, but according to International Business Times India, the Nexus 5 (2015) will come in a smaller package, with a 5.2-inch screen from the Nexus 6’s 6-inch pad. This is expected to be a welcome feature, with the bigger screen not fitting well with Nexus fans.
The Nexus 5 (2015) will also have a more affordable price tag — possibly lower than $500.
Reports also indicate the Nexus 5 (2015) release date to coincide with the new Android M release. If this be the case, the phone may come in October or even as early as August this year. It is also expected to come packed with the new Android OS.
Rumors also say gadget geeks can expect two Nexus phones this year — one being the LG Nexus 5 (2015) and the other dubbed as Huawei Angler. Android Police, who reported about this bit, says Huawei looks to pack a Snapdragon 800 processor and a 3500mAh battery in the smartphone. LG, on the other hand, plans on a Snapdragon 808 and a 2700mAh battery pack for the Nexus 5 (2015).
