Google has the tradition of releasing its new operating system along with its flagship devices, including the Motorola Nexus 6, which came with Android 5.0 Lollipop last year. So, it is natural for gadget lovers to think of the much-hyped Nexus 5 (2015) whenever something about the search giant's yet-to-be released software is leaked.
Interestingly, Google's Android team has confirmed on its official Twitter page that the firmware hitherto known as Android M, which was announced at the I/O 2015 event in May, will be called Android 6.0 Marshmallow, giving a hint that its release date is not far off. And if history is anything to go by, the Nexus 5 (2015) should be released along with the new software.
Google is tight-lipped on its upcoming device, dubbed as Nexus 5 (2015), but several information, including features, release date, and price have been leaked over the last few weeks. The device, codenamed "LG Bullhead" and to be made by LG, is expected to be launched in October or November by the time the Nexus 6 completes a year circle.
Features: According to reports, Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and with features like fingerprint sensor and Android Pay. It is also expected to come packed with 3 GB RAM, 13 MP rear camera, 2 MP secondary snapper, and a non-removable 2,300 mAh battery.
However, GizmoChina reported that Nexus 5 (2015) will come with features like NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB Type-C connector. It went on to claim that it will come packed with 64 GB internal memory, 4 GB RAM, 3,180 mAh non-removable battery, 13 MP main camera, and 4 MP front snapper.
Price: There is no credible report on the price of Nexus 5 (2015) till date but it is expected to come with an affordable price tag following the severe backlash Nexus 6 received for its steep price. A report by Geeksnack has claimed that the upcoming Google device will be priced under $500.
