Rumor has it Google is gearing up to release two new Nexus phones later this year. We’ve seen bits and pieces of information leak out over the past few months, but a new report from GizmoChina offers up a long list of specs for both of the stock Android devices.
First up is LG’s rumored Nexus phone, which could be a reboot of the popular Nexus 5 released in 2013. The device sounds pretty sweet, and apparently packs a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 3180mAh battery, a Snapdragon 620 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and a 4-megapixel iris-scanning camera in front. The new Nexus 5 could also feature a rear power button/fingerprint reader, wireless charging and a USB-C port with QuickCharge 2.0.
The design allegedly includes a metal frame with chamfered edges, along with a plastic panel in back. It’s apparently set to cost as little as $300 to $400, which might explain LG’s decision to use a less powerful Snapdragon processor.
Meanwhile, Huawei’s rumored Nexus phablet is shaping up to be a real powerhouse. It apparently packs a 21-megapixel rear camera, wireless charging and a metal unibody design. We’re guessing it’s also slated to get the latest Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm along with other plenty of cutting edge hardware like USB-C and a fingerprint scanner.
Of course, both Nexus phones will also run Android M out of the box. That means they won’t arrive until later this year when Google releases the latest version of its operating system. It could be a few more months before the devices finally launch, though it sounds like they’ll be worth the wait.
