After receiving a substantial price cut, the Google Nexus is again in headlines for its forthcoming smartphone for the year 2015. The rumors surfacing on the Internet suggest that the next device would be the Nexus 5 (2015), and the manufacturing will be again dropped in the hands of LG Electronics.
A report revealed on AndroidPit says, “LG will build the upcoming Nexus smartphone, but it will be based on an unreleased prototype.” However, the new smartphone will not be based on the flagship LG G4, it further says.
Meanwhile, another report by AndroidPolice states that the tech giant, Google will introduce its two Nexus phones this time, one will be from LG and the other one will be from Huawei.
The report further says that LG Nexus 5 (2015), also named as ‘Bullhead’ will feature a 5.2-inch display, meanwhile, the same from Huawei, which is named as ‘Angler’ would be featured with a larger 5.7-inch screen. The Google is following the trend started by Apple while launching its two iPhones with display size variants.
Noticeably, at Google I/O developer conference, for revealing the support for USB Type-C in Android M, the firm has used its previous LG Nexus 5 device. So, it could be predicted that the company was hinting that the next smartphone will have a similar look and feel.
After getting the several reports regarding the forthcoming Nexus, it is clear that it will wash-out the market for the current flagship, Nexus 6 by Motorola, due to its gigantic size and the price. As the 6-inch screen and high price meant that not many people would buy Nexus 6, especially in a budget conscious market like India. Also, a recent price cut on Flipkart hints and generates expectations that Google is soon unveiling its new flagship phone for 2015.
Meanwhile, the company’s flagship tablet, Nexus 9 will continue to run for another cycle, as there will be no new addition to the tablet series, as of now.
