Google is yet to speak up on its next device dubbed as the Nexus 5 (2015) but excitement has started building around it over the last few weeks. There is also report that the device's release is imminent, as the search giant has the tradition of pushing out Android updates ahead of unveiling its new flagship smartphone.
The release date of Google Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to fall in the month of October or November this year by the time the current flagship device, the Nexus 6 completes one year cycle in the market. However, nothing is confirmed as of now.
After releasing Android 5.0 Lollipop along with the Nexus 6 last year, Google has made its upgraded versions available to several devices and the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop factory image has been made available to Wi-Fi variant of Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013 builds) and Nexus 10. The 9to5Google reported that the firmware can be downloaded via Google's developer site.
There are also reports doing the rounds that Google might announce its upcoming software, the Android 6.0 'M' aka Muffin at its annual conference Google I/O 2015, and if it does, it could be seen running in the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015).
It is reported that Google is damping its Nexus 6 makers, Motorola, and go back to LG for its upcoming flagship smartphone. It may be mentioned that Google collaborated with LG for its devices - Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 – but went on to work with Motorola for its current flagship device the Nexus 6.
Google is tight-lipped on its upcoming next-generation device but going by their past tradition, the device might come with a couple features seen in LG's recently released smartphone, the G4, though the search giant is likely to make it different.
It is reported that Google could incorporate LG G4's display in its upcoming device. The G4 has QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 with IPS Quantum display technology. Google also could use one special camera feature of G4 in its Nexus 5 (2015), and it is the colour spectrum sensor that is embedded with the phone's rear-located LED flash.
