Google Nexus 6-3

Rumor has it Google will release two new Nexus phones later this year, unveiling a smaller LG-made smartphone and a phablet from Huawei. Now, a new report from Android Police claims to reveal the details and specs of both handsets.

First up is the LG device, code named “Angler” to follow Google’s trend of aquatic animal names. The smartphone will reportedly pack a 5.2-inch display, a 2700mAh battery and a Snapdragon 808 chip. Some of those specs are apparently still up for debate, but overall it sounds like a pretty nice upgrade for the two-year old Nexus 5.

Meanwhile, Huawei’s “Bullhead” is expected to be a much larger device with a 5.7-inch display. It will also reportedly offer a Snapdragon 810 processor and a 3500mAh battery. It sounds like a close follow-up to the Nexus 6, though with a slightly smaller footprint.

Android Police notes that both Nexus devices should launch at around the same time this fall, likely in October. As for Google’s tablet lineup, we may be stuck with the Nexus 9 for another year.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Google might launch two Nexus phones in 2015, but now the story is really starting to come together. As Android Police often does with its bigger leaks, this one comes with a confidence level score of 7 out of 10. That makes it seem pretty likely both devices will arrive later this year, though Google could easily change things up between now and October.
