Google Nexus: The Next Launch of the Giant Flagship in 2015

Google Nexus is a name that is known to all Android lovers. The device has been the purebred flagship product of the Android owner Google and has been in the market since a long time.

As per the reports of a mobile app development company, the new Nexus 2015 edition phones will be launched only after the launch of Android M.

Started by Google as a flagship product in their Android market, the Nexus range of smartphones are designed and developed by Google, but manufactured by the partners like Samsung, HTC, LG and so on.

The Nexus phones are also known for their app running capabilities and as per the findings of an App Design Company the latest Nexus device are going to have the most powerful processors and memory capabilities and bring a change in the mobile app domain of Android devices.

The Next Nexus: LG or Huawei?

Speculations are abounding that Google might be launching two new Nexus devices by the end of this year. Owing to the poor response of Motorola built Nexus 6, Google is said to have decided to go with LG and develop the new Nexus 5 (2015) model. On the other hand, there are chances that the next major Nexus release is given by Huawei as Google and Huawei have confirmed that they are in talks with each other over the possibility of bringing the new Nexus into the market.

The specifications of the LG Nexus 2015 model are expected to be in line with the new G4 launched by them. The device is said to be having a 5.2 inch Full HD screen, with a 2700 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 808 to power the device. It is also expected to have a fingerprint sensor, a feature quite important with Android M, and a USB Type C port for better transfer speed.

The design leaks reveal that the new Nexus 5 will have a similar shape to the previous Nexus models by LG and will have the fingerprint sensor at the back. Along with the sensor, the device will also have a high-resolution camera with dual tone flash. The memory specifications of the phone are still unclear and thus, cannot be commented upon.

As far as the Huawei model of the Nexus is considered, Google is said to be going with a large 5.7-inch screen and robust features in order to position it as a bigger and better phone. A full HD display powered by a Snapdragon 810/820 processor and USB type C are some other specs which are anticipated with the device. The design of the device is similar to that of the iPhone 6 and the back of the phone will have the flash, camera and the fingerprint scanner unit. The battery for the phone is expected to be a 3500 mAh powerhouse as the screen size is big. Other than that, no details were found regarding the memory of the phone.

Both these devices are expected to be launched by the end of this year and the people are eagerly waiting for the next Nexus models as the current Nexus 6 failed to impress the crowd as much as done by the Nexus 5.
