Now that we’ve seen the 2015 flagships of the major manufacturers and we’re nearing the end of the first half of the year, there’s a lot of focus being put on Google’s new Nexus hardware. Rumors point towards two devices to be released this year.
Sources say that Google is working with LG and Huawei on two new Nexus smartphones. The LG-made phone is reportedly codenamed “Angler” and may feature a 5.2-inch display and a 2700mAh battery, and the same hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor that’s powering the LG G4.
The larger of the two Nexus phones will allegedly be made by Huawei and feature the codenamed “Bullhead”. This device is said to include a 5.7-inch screen, Snapdragon 810, and a beefier 3500mAh battery to provide juice to the bigger screen and octa-core processor.
This information also states Google’s focus on smartphones instead of pointing towards a tablet. This new devies won’t probably be available for the next months.
This dual smartphone approach is one that Google hasn’t taken in the past, while some other companies have, and it might just work, since it provides a wider range of offer to the costumers, such as these two.
When the Nexus 6 was released, many felt that it was too large to be their daily use, therefore the 5.2-inch Angler by LG, who made the Nexus 5. Meanwhile, the Bullhead will be Huawei’s first Nexus smartphone, and so it’ll be interesting to see what the company can come up with for its first Google collaboration.
