Speculation on Google's upcoming smartphone dubbed as the Nexus 5 (2015) aka Nexus 5 2nd Generation is beginning to gain momentum over the last few weeks with its release date getting closer. One thing gadget lovers will be curious to know besides its features is it's design.

The Google Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to be released in October or November this year though some reports suggested that it could come earlier than expected. Product Manager of Android Jamal Eason has dropped a hint on the release date of the device by revealing on Android Developers Blogspot that Android M, which is expected to come with Google's upcoming device, is scheduled for launch this fall.

The looks of Google's Nexus devices, be it Nexus 4, 5 or 6, were predictable as they were based on manufacturers' flagship devices. Many might think the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) will be based on the LG G4, as it is expected to be made by the South Korean company but it may not be the case this time around.

The Nexus 6 has the looks of Motorola's flagship device as it manufactured it. So, the Nexus 5 (2015), which is expected to be made by LG under the codename "LG Bullhead", is very likely to look very different. However, it is natural for its fans and gadget lovers to expect its design to be based on the LG G4.

Surprisingly, AndroidPIT had earlier reported citing a source that the Nexus 5 (2015) will be built by LG but will not base on the LG G4. It added that the device will be based on an unreleased model. 

Nothing is confirmed as of now but it won't come as a surprise if Google diverts from its traditional practice of basing its devices on manufacturers' flagship devices.

The Google Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to sport a 5.2-inch screen with 1440 x 2560 pixels, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and run on Android M, according to reports that have appeared so far. It is also expected to come packed with 3 GB RAM, 13 MP main camera and 2 MP front snapper, and a non-removable 2300 mAh battery.
