Android M is Announced and the Release of Nexus 5 (2015) Imminent

Over the years, Google has been announcing new software at its annual conference Google I/O before introducing it on its flagship device. This year is not likely to be different. We have high anticipation that Google is going to announce the launch of Google Nexus 5 given that it has already announced its new firmware, the Android M.

Sources privy to this matter have intimated that the release date for upcoming Google Nexus 5 may be towards the end of this year. As we can remember, Motorola Nexus 6 was released by Google in November after it had announced the Android L at its I/O in 2014. Android L later came to be known as Android Lollipop 5.0.

The announcement of Android M is, therefore, a strong indication that the launch of Nexus 5 (2015) might not be far off. Android M was announced at the Google I/O 2015 on Thursday, 28 May. We also expect that letter “M” will be named after a sweet like in the past. Names that have been suggested include Marshmallow, Muffin, Macaroon, M&M’s, Milkshake, Mocha Java Cake and Molasses. The new software has features like Power management or Doze mode, native fingerprint support, app permissions, Android Pay integration, and Chrome Custom Tabs.

Nexus 5

Google is tight-lipped on its upcoming device, but several sources have claimed that it will be named the Nexus 5 (2015) and will be a variant of the 2013 LG Nexus 5. Android Police reported that the search giant is planning to release two devices: one with codename “Huawei Angler” and the other with codename “LG Bullhead”. The former will be manufactured by Huawei, a Chinese company, and is believed to be Motorola Nexus 6 successor. The later is to be manufactured by LG, and is believed to be the Nexus 5 (2015).

MobiPicker reports that Google’s new device might have a 5.7-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, and that it might be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor. The same source claims that the device could be referred to as Huawei Angler or Nexus 6 successor considering its screen size.

However, the device is expected to have a 5.2-inch screen and is likely to be driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. It is expected to use a 2700 mAh battery. Google seems to have learned a lesson from the Nexus 6 which had a 6-inch display and had a lukewarm response from gadget lovers for its huge display size.
