Yesterday, T-Mobile announced a series of OTA’s for the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9. The sole purpose of these updates are to fix a number of security and bug-related issues that were unearthed in the Android operating system. Now, Google has released the factory images for the upgrades, which are available to download and install directly from the search engine giant’s Developer Platform.
Another Nexus device will be produced by LG, the company’s third to be exact, and the handset could be coming as soon as September 29 with its price set at $400. Being that the aforementioned date is only a few weeks away, leaks are bound to happen more frequently. Specifications for the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) have already been shared, showing that Google will start this round of Nexus devices with a phone that is not exactly a flagship but still has pretty good components. Consumers looking for that high-end Nexus phone will have to wait for a possible beast from Huawei.

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.

The information regarding the approaching release date apparently comes from the same source that was correct about the Nexus 5’s arrival in 2014. While we cannot confirm the source’s validity, having a proven track record is certainly beneficial.
Huawei’s alleged Nexus device was not mentioned in the report.
