It has been back and forth, but it may finally be set who is making the next Google Nexus device… or Nexus devices. Rumors are still swirling around and this time more than ever. Rumor has it there will be a 5.2 inch LG made Nexus and a 5.7 inch Huawei Nexus. The new information has the LG device code named Angler and the Huawei made device code named Bullhead. Fish aliases have always been a Google staple, that is why we think this latest stream of info is worth the time.
The LG Angler will feature a 5.2 inch display, most likely QHD being backed by a Snapdragon 808 processor and a 2,700 mAh battery. LG was quite pleased with the performance of the Snapdragon 808 on their flagship, the G4, so it’s understandable that they would lean this way for a Google device. It seems that the Nexus (2015) that everyone is beggine for will indeed be a reality.
The Huawei Bullhead will sport a 5.7 inch QHD display panel, backed by a massive 3.500 mAh battery. Current plans have Bullhead being powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor, which may or may not change. It all depends on if they can tune it to not overheat without throttling performance. Bullhead is essentially the successor to Nexus 6 and will keep Google in the phablet game.
Both devices are expected to be announced in October, which has become a norm for Google. That means it would most likely be a late October or early November release for the majority of the world. Prices are unknown, but it is assumed the LG Angler will be in the $400 price range whereas the Huawei Bullhead will be around $600.
