Nexus 5 2015 release date: Google may release device at IFA 2015


Reports are pointing to October or November, but will Google actually release the Nexus 5 2015 earlier than expected?

Rumors say that it could be unveiled in Berlin next month, for this year’s IFA 2015 event.

According to Geek Snack, insiders are speculating that Google will actually release the rumored Nexus 5 2015, the second generation unit of the Nexus 5, at the IFA event. The report speculated that the release date will be on September 5, as the IFA event takes place between September 4 and September 9.

However, Geek Snack said that it is also possible that the Nexus 5 2015 could come out October 20, at the latest.

Google has not been generous with details about its upcoming Nexus 5 handset, but the International Business Times predicted that the upcoming Google smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm backed up by 3GB of RAM. It will reportedly be a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, will have a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera and will run on Android M.

It has been reported before that LG is developing a Nexus smartphone for Google, and rumors are saying that the LG G4 Pro might actually be LG’s Nexus smartphone, which had been code-named “Bullhead.”

An article at Yibada had speculated that the premium features of the G4 Pro dovetails almost exactly into the reported specs of LG’s Nexus phone. The article also said that the reported release dates for both phones coincide, as both have been rumored to be released next month.

However, the iDigital Times said that the LG Nexus device will have a 5.2 inch screen and a Snapdragon 810 or 808 processor, while MNR Daily said that the LG G4 Pro will possibly have a 5.8-inch screen and is expected to carry a Snapdragon 820 processor.

The LG G4 Pro will also be backed up by 4GB of RAM, MNR Daily added.

iDigital Times said that the LG “Bullhead” will have only 3GB of RAM.
