After the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, we can expect that gadget town will be all over the upcoming Nexus phones. We’ve been saying two Nexus devices will be released by Google and they will be manufactured by LG and Huawei. A video was leaked last week and rumors about the two companies working on their Nexus units have been persistent.
We can expect the upcoming Android M OS will be pre-installed in these new Nexus phones. And based on the latest information from @OnLeaks, we learned that the LG Nexus will have a metal body measuring 146.9 x 72.9 x 8/9.8mm, front-facing speakers, 5.2-inch display screen, USB Type-C, and a fingerprint sensor found at the back.
As for the Huawei Nexus, @OnLeaks shared that it will also have a metal body slightly bigger at 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6/8.5mm, 5.7-inch screen, and the same USB Type-C, fingerprint sensor on the back, and front facing speakers. The size could bring the Huawei Nexus in the phablet category.
LG isn’t new to the Nexus game as it already released a Nexus 5. This year, it will be a new Nexus 5 although we don’t know if Google or LG will keep the name. Huawei’s Nexus will be the first from a Chinese company as we heard that Google has more plans to be bigger in China.
Looking at the specs, the two Nexus devices have very similar features except for the size. The fingerprint sensors seem to be a standard now because Android M could have fingerprint authentication as a native feature. Still no information when these two will be unveiled but we’re guessing after the Android M is officially announced.
