What the images show, the Huawei-made Nexus could be called the Nexus P, while the one that is being manufactured by LG could be labelled Nexus 5X. According to a new report, the names of both the variants have finally been confirmed as “LG Nexus 5X” and “Huawei Nexus 6P”. That makes the 5X slightly more expensive, but still competitive in terms of other top-tier smartphones.
Rumors have it that the Huawei Nexus 6P is backed by a 3500mAh battery.
An industry source said, “Since Nexus phones are made to test Android OS, they will not have a profound effect on a two-way battle between Samsung and Apple”.
For those tuning in from the United Kingdom, Google’s Sept 29 event start time is 5PM and it will be held at Google’s UK headquarters. While last year’s Nexus 6 bucked the trend by asking punters to part with £600, the new Nexus 5 shouldn’t cost anywhere near as much due to its smaller size and less than current specs.
Starting at $500 (or £499 and AU$869), the 6 was also the most expensive Nexus to date. While we wait, why don’t you head on over to our official Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P forums and let us know which one you plan on snagging? The upcoming Nexus device is said to arrive with a battery of 3,500 mAh capacity and will support wireless and fast charging.
Huawei’s version is expected to have a 5.7-inch qHD screen with a 2,560×1,440-pixel resolution and a metal body. The device looks similar to the ones we’ve seen in past leaks, offering a pair of front-facing speakers as well as a round fingerprint reader around back. They will be the first Nexus devices to sport the new USB Type C port (that manufacturers have begun to follow) and also make the fingerprint sensor a standard, at least on mid-range devices and flagships. Moreover, it is rumored to be the first Nexus smartphone to offer a 128GB internal storage. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 810, hopefully without the heat problems.
Google has sent out the invites for its September 29th event, which is most likely going to introduce to the world the final version of Android M and the Nexus 5 2015 as well as the Nexus 6.
