Google is Rumored to Unveil Two Nexus Smartphones This Month

Google has recently sent out an invitation for an event that will take place on the 29th of this month. Along with it come speculations that the search giant will announce two smartphones under its famed Nexus lineup, which is in line with the previous rumors.

If you have not been keeping tabs about the rumors, it started with LG and Huawei getting a nod from Google to make the two upcoming Nexus smartphones (you can read the stories here and here).

As the months went on, the rumor mill continues to churn out more details about the handsets. Back in July, a near-complete specification of the supposedly Huawei-made Nexus smartphone was leaked by the popular leakster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) which include a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor and a metal chassis.

Two months later, it was the LG-made Nexus’ turn to have its specs leaked. According to the rumor it will be a toned down version of the other Nexus device sporting a 5.2-inch Full-HD display, Snapdragon 808 with 3GB RAM and 2,700mAh battery pack.

In keeping with the latest trends, both Nexus smartphones are supposedly equipped with a USB Type-C port and will run on the latest iteration of Google’s mobile OS, Android Marshmallow.


Today the latest development in the long line of speculations involved the naming of the new Nexus smartphones. Instead of taking on the Huawei Nexus name based on previous reports, the 5.7-inch model is believed to be called as Nexus 6P. Meanwhile, the smaller of the two will be called the Nexus 5X.

Nothing is certain at this point in time, so do take these rumors with your usual grain of salt. Luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to know if there are any truth behind these speculations as Google is slated to hold an event later this month.
