Nexus details leak with LG and Huawei releasing two phones

Two Nexus devices, not just one, have been tipped to be coming from Google later this year. One will be a more “standard” sized smartphone made by LG, coming with a body that’s not extremely unlike the LG Nexus 5, this time coming with a 5.2-inch display, USB-C, and a fingerprint sensor. Like the LG device, a larger Huawei Nexus smartphone will have a fingerprint sensor, USB-C, and will work with a 5.7-inch display. These two devices will likely turn up within the next couple of months.

With so much success working with LG in the past, Google appears to be fine skipping the general “use a different manufacturer every year” trend with Nexus devices. This LG device won’t be quite so rubbery as the last time the company worked in this line.

LG Nexus X
Display: 5.2-inch display 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
RAM: 3GB
Dimensions: 146.9 x 72.9 x 8.8mm
Front-facing Speakers: Yes
Fingerprint Sensor: Yes (back-facing)
USB-C: Yes

Both the LG and the Huawei Nexus devices will likely follow the “metal body” trend with at least metal rims around their glass fronts. The backsides of these devices could be glass, but will more likely be some sort of soft plastic.
