There has been a rumour circulating for months now that Google would be expanding its Nexus line to include phones from five different vendors. The last three years the company has worked with one manufacturer (HTC then Samsung then Samsung again) to release a Nexus product but due to the relative commercial success of the Galaxy Nexus, Google plans to expand the pure Android experience.
One such device could be a variation of the Droid Incredible X, that rumoured five-inch 1080p HTC phone we saw earlier this month. Rumoured to be called either the Nexus 5 or Nexus 5X, the device is expected to pack a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, a 12MP camera with up to 64GB of internal storage. There’s going to be a larger 2500mAh battery and LTE connectivity included, too.
Also expected is a bump in Android version to 4.1.2 with improvements to the lock screen and better performance through Project Butter. While none of this information is secured, the source is supposedly a reliable HTC informant who has provided accurate leaks in the past.
Considering the Galaxy Nexus was announced just under a year ago, it’s high time Google gets ready to make waves again.
