No new Nexus tablet, but two Nexus smartphones coming this year: Report
Google is reportedly planning to skip new Nexus tablet launch this year, but it will be introducing two Nexus smartphones. One of these phones will be manufactured by South Korea’s LG and other by China’s Huawei, reports Android Police.
According to Android Police, the Nexus 9 will continue to be Google’s flagship tablet for 2015 and we won’t be see a new Nexus tablet in any size this year. However, it will be the first year when Google is working with two Android manufacturers to launch two separate Nexus smartphones.
The LG-built Nexus will be a successor to Nexus 5 and will sport a 5.2-inch display, around 2700 mAh battery and Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor. It has been code-named Bullhead.
On the other hand, Huawei-made Nexus will replace the Nexus 6 and will come with a 5.7-inch screen, 3500 mAh battery and Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor. The smartphone carries the code-name Angler.
Other specifications of these smartphones are a mystery at this point, but we will probably see more leaks and rumours before the expected October/ November debut of the new Nexus smartphones.
Update: The smartphone code-names have been changed.
