Two Nexus devices are expected to be released by the end of the year. Both LG and Huawei are apparently in charge of the hardware launching alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It would be LG’s third time manufacturing a Nexus device and this one could arrive as soon as September 29. Today, alleged specifications regarding the LG-made Nexus phone, likely known (again) as the Nexus 5, were detailed.
Here are the specifications offered to Android Police:
- 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 808
- 3GB of RAM
- 12.3MP / 5MP cameras
- 2700mAh battery
- 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
- USB Type-C port
- White, black, or blue color options
The source did not provide Android Police with a release date or pricing; however, these specifications seem to indicate a range of $300-$500. Nexus devices typically launch in November and pricing has always been scattered. The original Nexus 5, for example, launched on Halloween night in 2013 with a $349 staring price while the Nexus 6 debuted in mid-October last year priced at $649 to start. Assuming Google does work with Huawei on another Nexus phone, it looks as if the company’s strategy is to have two separate devices to cover the high-end market with affordable and pricier options.
