The release date of Google Nexus 5 (2015) may be months away, but gadget lovers have started talking about it and some might be confused either to buy the current flagship device, Nexus 6, or wait for Nexus 5 (2015).
Google is yet to reveal the release date of its upcoming smartphone, dubbed as the Nexus 5 (2015), but reports have suggested that it would be unveiled in October or November, this year, when Nexus 6 completes one-year cycle in the market.
Now, many gadget lovers will be in a dilemma whether to buy the current flagship device or wait for LG Nexus 5 successor. The fact is that these two devices are likely to be very different from each other.
It is certain that Google Nexus 5 (2015) will come with lots of feature upgrades over the Nexus 5 and 6, but it may not compete with the Nexus 6 on one aspect, display size.
Motorola Nexus 6 has a 6-inch display, whereas the Google Nexus 5 (2015) is likely to sport either a 5.3-inch or a 5.7-inch screen. So, the release of Nexus 5 second generation may not affect the sales of the current flagship device as big screen lovers will stick to Nexus 6, while small screen lovers will wait for Nexus 5 (2015).
If you are one of those who prefer big screen, Motorola Nexus 6 should be your choice as the upcoming Nexus device is expected to come with screen size between 5 and 6 inches. However, gadget lovers who prefer smaller screens should wait for Nexus 5 (2015).
The search giant is yet to open up on its upcoming flagship smartphone, but almost all the major features of the device have been leaked. MobiPicker has revealed specifications of Nexus 5 (2015), citing Chinese IT analyst firm Jiutang Pan's post on the Weibo website. It claimed that the device will sport a 5.7-inch OLED screen with 1440 x 2560 pixels, powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor, and 1080p resolution.
The device is also expected to come running on Google's next software dubbed as Android M aka Android 6.0 M Muffin. The firmware is expected to be announced at the upcoming annual conference Google I/O 2015.
