Google is reportedly planning to release two new Nexus smartphones this year and there have been a lot of hype built around these devices. The two new Nexus phones, being built by LG and Huawei, will wear the flagship crown this year, complete with high-end specifications and features. While there has been a lot of confusion about the release of the handsets, a fresh report from Korea suggests the LG Nexus 5 (2015) will be available on Google Store from 29 September, GforGames reported.

This raises the question whether the handset will be available internationally on the same day. It has also been reported in the past that the LG variant of the Nexus 5 (2015) will be launched alongside the Huawei Nexus 5 (2015) but there is no mention of the Huawei variant from the Korean source.

According to the Korean website, MKPost, the source who speculated the release of the new Nexus device had correctly predicted the launch of the original Nexus 5 in 2013.

So far, we have learnt quite a few details about the LG Nexus 5 (2015). The new handset is expected to come with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display with 2560 x 1440 pixel screen and 565ppi. Under the hood, the new Nexus will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, same as the LG G4, 3GB or 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

According to a recent report, the camera in the LG-made Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to be better than the Huawei version. The handset is said to come with a 13-megapixel rear-facing Sony IMX 278 sensor with Optical Image Stabilization. Other rumoured specifications include a fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C connector, and a 2,300mAh or 3,180mAh battery.

As expected, the Google Nexus 5 (2015) will be the first devices to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If the LG Nexus 5 (2015) release happens on 29 September, there is a good chance other Nexus smartphones will get the final build of the latest Android OS in the following week.
