Google is reported to be launching two Nexus phones this year, following the launch of its latest upgrade for Android aka Android M. The two phones will actually be priced at two levels, one being a low cost flagship like the Nexus 5, while the other will be a high-priced like the Nexus 6. LG will be manufacturing the low-cost variant, while Huawei will be making the high-cost version – according to an update by AndroidPit.
the device manufactured by Huawei will be codenamed Bullhead and will sport a 5.7-inch display, while LG’s device is dubbed Angler and will feature a 5.2-inch display.
Since the low cost nexus device is being developed by LG which is well known for its popular Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 devices, it was assumed that the next Nexus from LG would be a successor of Nexus 5. Also few opined that the next Nexus from LG would dub the LG G4, its latest flagship phone. But the recent posts from Android Police and Android Pit have made it clear that LG would be coming up with a new prototype instead of a successor device.
The Last Nexus device from Google was Nexus 6, manufactured by Motorola in 2014. The phone was critically acclaimed for its rich sepcifications and stunning looks, but was also much criticized for being “the most expensive” Nexus device till now. This could be a reason why Google has decided to come up with two devices in place of a single successor.
Although the release dates have not been clear yet, the devices are expected to be revealed in mid-august along with the Android M update.
