Nexus 5, Android M Releasing Together? Plus Nexus 6 Update


If rumors are to be believed, then Google Nexus 5, which is scheduled to be released at the end of this year, will have Android M pre-installed in it. While Nexus 5 will hopefully release in September or October, Google also plans on releasing the brand-new Nexus 6 sometime soon. Both the Nexus 5 and 6 will feature Android M. There are two separate codenames for the devices as they are being manufactured by LG and Huawei. Nexus 5 is called “LG Angler”, while Nexus 6 is called “Huawei Bullhead”.

Going by the reports, Nexus 5 will have 5.2 inch HD display, 64 GB storage, 2700 mAh battery and Qualcomm 808 processor. Nexus 6, on the other hand, will have a 5.7 inch OLED display with a pixel resolution of 2560×1440. The processor and battery capacity will also be enhanced  with Nexus 6, as it will have Snapdragon 810 processor and a 3500 mAh battery.


Android M, which will probably release in the fall, is undergoing a development phase. As this new version of Android M supports dual-sim, it is speculated that the new Nexus devices will also feature dual-sims along with Android Pay. Since, the current version of Nexus failed to incite the overwhelming response that the brand is used to, Huawei has been asked to revamp the Nexus 6 second generation giving it the edge it is in dire need of.
