Google’s Nexus phone launches have never really followed the schedule of other companies, so while we’ve seen a lot of high-profile handsets make their bow in the first half of 2015, this year’s Nexus has yet to appear.
When it does show up, we’re expecting Huawei to be the company behind the phone, and a well-informed Chinese analyst has just joined up a few more dots in regards to what’s in store.
He says the new Nexus will feature a 5.7-inch display with a QHD (1440 x 2560 pixel) resolution. It’s also going to come with the Snapdragon 810 installed, according to people with the inside track on Google’s plans.
5, 6 or 7?
Exactly where this fits into the Nexus line-up isn’t very clear. Some rumours suggest the Huawei phone will be a replacement for the Nexus 5 while others say it’s the successor to the Nexus 6. We’ve also heard whispers of a second top-end Nexus coming this year made by LG.
With a 5.7-inch screen the Huawei Nexus would fit right between the 4.95-inch display of the Nexus 5 and the 5.96-inch display found on the Nexus 6. It looks like fans of small displays are going to be out of luck.
Of course the Nexus 7 name is already taken so Google’s going to have to do some imaginative thinking to come up with a new numbering system – or perhaps it will just keep the 5, 6 and 7 names in place and release new versions every year or two.
