The rumors are suggesting that this year we could be treated to two Nexus handsets. One from Huawei and the other from LG. Unfortunately apart from leaked photos and alleged specs surfacing online, it’s really anyone’s guess as to when these phones will actually be launched, but now we might have a date.
The latest rumor comes courtesy of the Korean media who claims that on the 29th of September, the LG Nexus (2015) will be released. Unfortunately the source did not mention anything about the Huawei Nexus, presumably because LG is a Korean brand that they might have more insider information on, but it’s safe to assume Google will want to launch both devices simultaneously.
This was further corroborated by G for Games who claims the same source provided accurate dates a couple of years ago with the Nexus 5, so perhaps there might be some credibility to their claims. In any case there is a bit of confusion going on at the moment regarding the LG Nexus specs.
Previously leaked specs suggested a mid-range device at best, but the latest Geekbench 3 results revealed that the LG Nexus could actually be more powerful than we were let on to believe. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully Google will have something to tell us soon.
