Details of two new Nexus phones leaked

Huawei Nexus 6Although a decent amount of information concerning the next Nexus branded smartphones from Google has already emerged, a comprehensive leak which occurred last week has laid bare the specifications of the devices, one of which is built by LG, while the other comes from Huawei.

LG’s model will feature a 5.2 inch OLED display, with a full HD resolution, along with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage space and an octa-core processor from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon family of chipsets.

Huawei’s handset will be much larger, with a 5.7 inch QHD display on the cards, along with an impressive 21 megapixel camera bolted onto the back.

These devices are likely to be known as the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, replacing the existing Google smartphones with the same nametags.

Hopefully, both of these handsets will be launched at affordable price points, which would be in keeping with Google’s prior strategy for the Nexus range. Observers have pointed out that some of the specifications mentioned in the leak do not stack up with previous reports, particularly when it comes to the LG handset, which was thought to be utilising a more modern Qualcomm chipset than mentioned by sources at GizmoChina.
