Every year, Google releases a new Nexus phone in collaboration with one of the biggest names from the mobile market. Last year, Motorola was Google’s partner and the Nexus 6 had many visual characteristics of the Moto X 2015 model, and this year it seems that LG will be back to produce Nexus 5’s successor, while the other variant will be released by Huawei. We don’t know when this phone will be released, but we collected a few rumors about its specs and we’re presenting them in this article.
The Nexus 6 is one of the largest smartphones, having a 5.96 inches AMOLED display with QHD resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels) that offers a pixel density of 493ppi. Because it didn’t come with a pen stylus, many users criticized it, because they needed both of their hands to operate on the expanded screen and, most likely, Google will make the Nexus 5 smaller. The rumors are suggesting that the phone will have a screen that will measure 5.3inches or 5.7inches and it will have the same resolution.
Last year, Qualcomm sold many of its Snapdragon chipsets to famous mobile phone producers, and the 805 model was the most powerful 32bit SoC that came on various flaghips released in fall. The Nexus 6 is powered by a quad core Krait 450 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, which couples with Adreno 420 graphics and 3GB of RAM and has internal memories of 32 or 64GB, which can’t be expanded. The Nexus 5 2015 (created by LG) will most likely come with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, but chances are high for Qualcomm to release a new chipset that won’t heat up that badly. As for the internal memories, they will be expandable up to 128GB.
The camera on the back of the Nexus 6 is 13MP and has optical image stabilization, dual-LED flash and other cool features that contribute to the increase of quality of your images. The Nexus 5 2015 is rumored to feature a 16MP back camera, while the front camera will be increased from 2MP to 8MP.
The Nexus 6’s 3220mAh lasts one day when making voice calls over 3G, but it seems that the new model will have a smaller 3000mAh battery and most likely, it will be non-removable.
Google reduced the price of its current Nexus 6, which can be bought from Amazon for the sum of 500 dollars (32GB) or 550 dollars (64GB). This is a sign that the company is preparing to release the Nexus 5 2015 and wants to empty its stocks.
