As Huawei in the United States the brand “Huawei P7” trademark has protect, it is possible that we could get this year a successor of the nexus P6 to face. Technical specifications are not yet known. Only the number in the name might indicate a very large 7-inch display. With a such a large display, the Smartphone would be but rather more than to refer to Tablet.

Google builds might be a pixel-phone and not a nexus

The latest rumored Google could make this year including a Smartphone, which was designed and developed entirely by Google. Google itself has brought quite a few devices in this way on the market. The best examples are there the Chromebook pixel and the pixel C. A Smartphone wasn’t this but so far.
Google could take this step and thus catch up with Apple. Both companies would then control everything from the development of software and hardware to the distribution. Google’s pixel-phone would not necessarily mean the end of the nexus series. Both devices could coexist and analyze Google which is interesting for the company.
According to Google you want to make Android into a controlled platform. Because unfortunately it looks today, the latest version of Android running on only about 7.5% of the Smartphones. In comparison, the latest version of iOS run on about 80% of the iPhones. This problem will get Google into the handle and could make a step in the right direction with the production of their own smartphones and provide more smartphones with regular updates. For speculation to specifications around on the pixel-phone by Google, it is still too early. We will keep you informed but.

Original article Google nexus: Smartphone of the year 2015

Article from October 15, 2015: Due to a Chinese source, it was previously assumed that both nexus devices would simultaneously be presented and can be ordered on the same day of the Google store on September 29. Same source said the publication of the first nexus 5 already in 2013 correctly ahead and “back then”, a pre-order was actually possible on the same day. However takes a look at the timing of nexus devices in recent years, the advance was possible on the same day actually only once: at the nexus of 5 of the first generation.
Other sources, among them TalkAndroid, now reported that Google wants but rather to proceed with this year’s Nexus devices as they have done last year. This would mean that some time will be between the introduction of new equipment and the possibility of a pre-order. It is based on the timing of the last year, this could be ~ 14 days mean.

Publication (Before) Order possible
Nexus one December 12, 2009 January 05, 2010
Nexus S December 06, 2010 December 16, 2010
Galaxy nexus 19 October 2011 November 17, 2011
Nexus 4 October 29, 2012 November 13, 2012
Nexus 5 31 October 2013 31 October 2013
Nexus 6 15 October 2014 29 October 2014

So far, three independent sources report that an idea of the new Nexus will very likely take place devices on 29 September 2015. Therefore is it now considered quite likely to classify, that Google will present us even Android 6.0 that day in addition to the new Nexus devices in its final version and interested can pre-order them on 13 October 2015. However, so far none of the dates is officially confirmed. Incidentally, yet no credible rumors are circulating over the period until delivery.

Different preferences

Smartphone users fall for some time very roughly into two categories: on the one hand are those, the display can be not large enough. And then there are those who prefer even by 2015 to a 3.5 “display would cling and logically therefore not too big smartphones prefer. Now even the “not too big” smartphones on considerable 4.7-5 are “grown, but we know not only thanks to Samsung and Apple quite different dimensions.
Therefore, it is no longer a rarity, that providers offer Smartphone new products in two different sizes, for example, Huawei with its P8 and its P8 max. This strategy would probably Google this year use, where the company makes this even slightly more interesting, and produce the different-sized units from two different manufacturers can be: while LG is responsible for a second generation of nexus 5, Huawei has the goal to create a second generation of the nexus 6.
Year after year Google looking for a cooperation partner, charged with establishing the new Nexus device and is traditionally also the new version of Android unveiled at its launch. This began 2010 with the nexus one, which at the time was made by HTC. Next went the same year with the nexus S, manufactured by Samsung and 2011 with the Galaxy nexus, also manufactured by Samsung. Mid-2012 for the first time a Tablet in the circle of the nexus smartphones joined, realized in collaboration with Asus. Since then, at least a Google Smartphone and a Google tablet, for which every year new/other partners be chosen appear every year.
In the last year of 2014 you produced appeared nexus gadgets with support by HTC (Tablet) and Motorola (Smartphone), while this year seemingly both Huawei and LG, are responsible for both a new Nexus Smartphone.

LG: Nexus 5 (2015)

The relatively reliable source Android police recently released the latest leaks. Therefore LG is working on any breathtaking high-end Smartphone with incredible hardware components, but is instead a solid 5.2 about “big flagship before. “Solid” should be not pejorative meaning in this case: we 3 GB RAM and the Snapdragon 808 currently await a full-HD display,. LG in the G4used this processor to make the often criticised heat problems of the Snapdragons 810 out of the way. So should a similar performance as the2014 nexus 6 appeared or the Samsung Galaxy rated 4 be achieved. Android police continues by a 2,700 mAh large battery – the nexus 5 (2013) with 2,300 mAh often criticism ran. Although 400 seem mAh at first glance not as most promising innovation, to celebrate a significantly improved battery life, but current devices indicate that batteries can be used much more efficient than previously done. Thus, the 2,700 mAh may be more than satisfactory.
Android police is a rear camera performance with 12.3 MP, where a long time ago already it was reported that LG camera technology the LG G4 partly on the new Nexus device would like to use. The popular self portraits are taken with 5 MP likely to.
Loaded the new Nexus 5 is relatively safe with a USB type-C-port, where it is so far unclear whether LG using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. But it is sure that already existing microUSB cable with the nexus of the new generation 5 can no longer be used. However, the combination of new connections and new cable brings the pleasant advantage to be able to insert the connector on both sides.

Huawei: Nexus 6 (2015)

The technical data that are circulating at this time about the nexus 6 on the net, based on leaks from the Twitter-Leakern OnLeaks and evleaks.
Both go from a 5.7 “large screen diagonals from suggesting that Google’s, has been described to heart as the display size of the current nexus 6 of in many places with ‘too huge’. This 5.7 “display to allegedly with QHD dissolve, where the information is still classified by many as”with caution to enjoy”.
At the hotel’s own smartphones, Huawei installed also the in-house processors. But no one really expects that Google would like to have a Kirin in his new Nexus, is why – as yet – by working with Qualcomm to be. Of course, Google will want to use but also a heated processor. In short: Probably nexus 6 can enjoy (2015) interested on the Snapdragon 820 and therefore, most likely, a true high end device. So far nothing is known about the memory, however.
When a nearly 6 “large display a relatively large battery is required to easily meet the day: 3,500 mAh are expected.
The camera sensor of the this year’s Nexus 6 should come from the House of Sony and sony typical, slightly exaggerated 20.7 MP resolve – but, as has been stated already to the justice, it is not only on the number of megapixels.
Also Huawei’s Nexus 6 with a USB type-C-port is expected as the nexus 5 (2015).

Android Marshmallow & fingerprint scanner

Of course, both nexus models should come with the latest version of Google’s operating system on the market. Also supposedly part: A fingerprint scanner, where the leaks are strongly contradictory on this point and so is so far unclear whether the appropriate sensor on the front or on the back is to be expected.

Release and price of nexus devices

Although languages some portals already a release at the end of this month, but more realistic, also in terms of Google’s tradition, is a concept in October/November. The question remains however: there should be this year really two different nexus smart phones from different manufacturers, they are presented at the same time then? Or leaves Google prefers one of the two?
The last year’s Nexus 6 was disproportionately expensive for nexus relationships and Google had no doubt to feel this much lower sales. We therefore hope that the cost for this year’s Nexus models again focused more on the prices of the past few years.

But why are the nexus smart phones so popular? What differentiates them from other Android devices?

We forget the nexus 6 at this point once, which unfortunately something worse page presents itself as compared to its predecessors by one.
But until the currently current nexus is basically: strong technology coupled with handy dimensions at a sensational price. More trump cards are in a stylish design with excellent processing. Flaws, such as, for example, a somewhat shaky speaker button at the nexus of 5 may notice only at a very detailed review search. But they are not really worth in General a wail.
In addition to a convincing price-performance ratio in terms of hardware and its processing, this is second and very important plus of nexus devices in the pure stock Android.
Samsung and its TouchWiz interface, modify many manufacturers, above all Android through its own UI, visually more other Android phone to differentiate themselves from manufacturers. And while this seems at first glance the recovery re ID value as a good and understandable idea, it has sustainability advantages for the users but rather. The Smartphones work through a proprietary UI often cluttered, have about apps that can not uninstall, thus claim not freilegbaren memory and where many wonder who actually uses them. In addition, their user interface as well as permanently running programs in the custom versions of Android have a significantly negative impact on the speed of the device: it is noticeably carrier. All in all the benefits of a stock Android are obvious: no unnecessary apps and a high freedom of design which comes the actual open source thought of the Android world to the next. Stock Android is lean and simple, has a functional operation with a subtle surface. And at this point there will be a further benefit: by eliminating a customize UI Android updates are very fast-while it could take months for modified versions of Android until the appropriate manufacturer adapted… the new Android or but, the second possibility: there’s no update at all.
The different manufacturers that Google works with implementing a new device are another special feature of the nexus series. Because even the new Android will be presented with the new Nexus, according to current co-operation partner prematurely learns of the details of the new androids. This other manufacturers not to penalise or Android by permanent disadvantage to make them bad, Google sought no permanent partner for the hardware. Since the acquisition by Motorola mobility by Google, there was and fears on the part of other manufacturers with regard to this strategy. However, and thus again briefly to return visit to LG on Google, seem the chances are good that these fears are not true.

2010 to date: The emergence of the nexus series

Was presented in January 2010 the first nexus Smartphone: the nexus one, made and HTC. Surprisingly, the first unit sold very poorly. Google sales’s at that time only about one purpose in life called website allowing customers however had no possibility that the nexus one before a possible purchase in the hand most likely was that the main reason for the failure. After that, it was said that Google will bring more no other nexus devices on the market. Yet another Smartphone of series, this time also in the shelves of the mobile phone and electronic stores appeared yet at the end of that same year: the nexus S. And thus began the annual autumn/winter nexus tradition, which is 2012 the diffrent nexus tablets joined by this.
Here an overview of the previously released nexus Gadgets:

Conclusion

Google’s Nexus devices definitely have many positive aspects. But the nexus 6 was a flopand large and especially well priced. Therefore, it is all the more to hope that this year’s Smartphone will again dominate. It remains to be seen, in how far we on LG as manufacturers hope… but also a nexus manufactured by Huawei would be an exciting alternative. All in all will remain for the time being only to say: wait and drink tea.
