According to recent rumours, we could be looking at a dual launch of the next version of Android operating system, Android M, and a 2015 version of the Nexus 5.
Codenamed the “LG Angler”, the device is expected to be the successor to the widely popular Nexus 5, and more importantly the flagship device for Android M.
The Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to have a 5.2-inch QHD display, 3GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 810 processor, the aim of which will be to appeal to those users who thought the Nexus 6 was just too big. It’ll most certainly have the new USB Type-C connector, and come with 32GB or 64GB variants, and potentially even an 128GB model.
A release date pegs the Nexus 5 (2015) towards the end of the year, possibly around October time, with pricing unknown at this point.
Google will use the next device in its Nexus lineup to change its design language for a device – much like Samsung did with their Galaxy S6 – that will see a more premium, durable, build quality.
One thing’s for certain – the tech world wants an updated Nexus 5!
