We’ve known for a while now that Google is set to launch not one, but two Nexus smartphones later this year. One will be manufactured by LG and the other by Huawei. However, if a new report out is anything to go by, it would appear that the LG-built Nexus will not be based on its flagship G4 as previously thought. Instead, the South Korean company has teamed up with Google to design the upcoming device from scratch.
A leaked promotional image popped up online earlier today revealing the price of Huawei’s upcoming flagship phablet of 2015, the P8Max. The handset is expected to be announced tomorrow, June 26, and will set anyone back who wants one 3,788 Chinese Yuan ($610).

A second GeekBench report emerged earlier today and this time it’s the Galaxy A8 we’re looking at. If this benchmark is anything to go by, it appears the handset won’t actually feature a 5.7-inch display as previously expected. It will, instead, sport a 5.5-inch panel.
Hot on the heals of its official announcement, a leaked snap of the Meizu Note 2 has appeared online, revealing that the handset is set to ship running Flyme — a highly-adapted version of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Sources in China claim that the forthcoming Huawei-produced Google Nexus smartphone will be based on a prototype of the manufacturer’s Mate 8 smartphone.
