We’ve been hearing tons of rumors lately about Google’s upcoming lineup of Nexus smartphones, and it looks like we’ll finally see them officially unveiled in late September. The company is set to hold an event in San Francisco on September 29th, just in time for the holidays. Read more
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.
Nexus devices typically launch in November, a time that coincides with the release of a new version of Android. This year, however, the wait may not be so long. A report from Korean media outlet MK Post claims that a Nexus device from LG will launch on September 29. What else does this mean? Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming very soon.
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.

We are edging closer to Nexus season, and this year, for the first time, it would appear that Google will be announcing two Nexus handsets made by different manufacturers – LG and Huawei. We’ve seen renders of both rumoured devices in recent weeks, and now, as you can see from the image above, images of the Huawei Nexus – Codename ‘Angler’ have been leaked. The images came courtesy of Google+ user Tiessen Fu, who, it seems, was sent the images by a friend via a Chinese instant messaging service.
After yesterday’s official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ handsets at the Unpacked event, you would be forgiven for not wanting to read about another Samsung product for a while. Luckily, we have some news (and renders) about LG’s upcoming Nexus 5 (2015 edition) handset that should give some welcome respite.
It’s never too early for Nexus leaks, am I right? While we’ve seen the odd leak in recent times showing off possible specifications and rear panels, today we have not one, but two leaks about both the Nexus handsets that are allegedly being developed by LG and Huawei. Read more
While Google’s Nexus smartphones usually come equipped with top-of-the-line hardware, their popularity can be largely attributed to the pure Android experience that they offer. But this time around, Huawei is going to give you one more reason to get excited about the upcoming Google flagship – it could be compatible with LTE bands worldwide.
We have heard a lot about Huawei making the next Nexus phone, but now a new video has surfaced showing an unnamed prototype by Huawei.
Google’s latest Android 5.1.1 update is now available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013, WiFi), Nexus 9 (LTE and WiFi) and Nexus 10. You can download the upgrade instantly as a factory image or you can wait for it to roll out as an OTA later today.
If you have been waiting for your 3rd installment of the Android M developer previews, originally slated by Google to be released at the end of July, you can go ahead and take a moment to relax: it’s not happening anytime soon.
According to Android Developer Advocate, Wojtek Kaliciński, the preview has been indefinitely postponed. Read more
