The Nexus 6 and its big display turned out to be pretty divisive, with some folks digging the large screen and others feeling that itâ€™s simply to gigantic for daily use. If a new rumor is to be believed, Google is planning to appease both camps in 2015.
A new report says that Google is working with LG and Huawei on two new Nexus smartphones for release this year. The LG model is reportedly codenamed â€œAnglerâ€ and is said to feature a 5.2-inch display, hexa-core Snapdragon 808, and 2700mAh battery. Meanwhile, the Huawei-made â€œBullheadâ€ may pack a 5.7-inch screen, octa-core Snapdragon 810, and a larger 3500mAh battery to help power those beefier components.
This dual Nexus phone approach will reportedly come at the expense of a new Nexus tablet, as Google is said to be sticking with the Nexus 9 in 2015 instead of launching a new model.
Traditionally, Google has released just one Nexus phone each year, but in 2015 it might want to appease both sides of the Nexus 6 size argument by releasing two differently-sized handsets. If the report holds true, itâ€™ll be interesting to see if Google responds to the other common complaint about the Nexus 6 â€” its price â€” and offers one or both new phones at a cost more like the N4 and N5.
