The rumour mill is churning out leaked images and videos of the upcoming Nexus 5 2015 on a regular basis. The Nexus fans are getting more and more excited as time passes by, but it’s hard to keep up with every small detail of your favourite phone series when the rumours pop-up almost daily.
Well, fret not, we have gone through all the information that is available about the upcoming Nexus 2015 model and will share it with you in this post.
Who’s Making The Nexus 2015?
As per the rumours, the Nexus 5 will come in 2 models as it is being designed by two manufacturers- LG and Huawei. LG’s device is codenamed is ‘Bullhead’ whereas Huawei’s phone is codenamed as ‘Angler’.
Given the history of Nexus smartphones I seriously doubt that Google will launch two models of its flagship device. It will most likely select any one of these two devices and scrap the other.
What About The Hardware?
The upcoming Nexus phone which is being referred to as Nexus 5 2015, will most likely run on the upcoming Snapdragon 820 SoC.
It is also expected to come with 4 GB RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB ROM, support for microSD card up to 1 TB, 20 MP f/1.8 rear cam sporting an LED flash and OIS 2.0, 13 MP front selfie unit, and a 5.5” QHD AMOLED display, and a removable 4000 mAh battery. Such a mammoth battery when coupled with ‘Doze’ feature of Android M will offer superb standby time for a smartphone.
The Nexus phones always run the latest Android OS at the time of their launch, so we are expecting Nexus 5 2015 to run on Android M at the time of its launch. We also know that Google will release Android M in October or November this year, so we can expect Nexus 2015 to be launched in that timeframe as well.
What’s Cool About Nexus 2015?
The phone will feature a fingerprint scanner too as it will run on Android M which has built-in support for fingerprint scanning. The phone will also support Android Pay secured by fingerprint scanning which can used for making payments using their credit cards across 700,000 outlets in the U.S.
Nexus 5 2015 is also expected to come with a heart rate sensor on-board which will then support a host of health and fitness tracking apps.
The phone will also support the symmetrical USB-C port for very fast charging and supporting multiple connectivity options like HDMI, VGA, and Power USB.
