Google gave us a preview of the yet-to-be released next version of Android, Android M (6.0) at the 2015 Google I/O event. This sparked the big question of how will the next version of Android be released to the world. According to recent rumors, Google is planning on releasing its next OS alongside a new Nexus device, known to be at this point the Nexus 5 2015, codenamed “LG Angler”. The new device is hypothesized to be released by the end of this year, alongside a Nexus tablet that Huawei will most likely be in charge of making. The specs of the upcoming Nexus 5 2015 are still to-be-annouced, however users do have high expectations which will force Google and LG to release a device with the latest specs and tech available in the mobile market. We definitely expect to see a Full HD resolution touchscreen (5-inch minimum) with a possibility of a Quad HD panel as well. The new Nexus device will certainly feature a fingerprint sensor to take advantage of Android M’s new native fingerprint identification support. In terms of internal specs, the new Nexus will most likely come with the snapdragon 810 or 808, 3GB of RAM and come with 32GB, 64GB or 128 GB of internal storage options. In addition, wireless charging and fast charging should be included in the package, and most certainly, a USB Type C port. Finally, according to a person close with the engineering team at Google said that the new Nexus will have a major design improvement with a more durable body made up of a specific type of strong carbon fiber.

Another important question to ask at this moment is whether the new Nexus 5 2015 or so-called “LG Angler” will feature a built-in non-removable battery or not. Having a removable battery does offer a great advantage as batteries do wear out and having the option of removing the battery yourself and replacing with a new one is always preferable.

    It better not be AMOLED. Pentile is terrible.

    Will it be compatible with Project Fi?

      I expect that will be a major selling point for the device if Google’s marketing team has half a brain about it.
