Nexus 5 (2015) design

The famous twitter leaker @Onleaks tweeted the below depicted image of CAD renter presumed to be Nexus 5 (2015).

Who will make the 2015 Nexus?

This is a big question, who will make the 2015 Nexus? It’s gonna be LG or Huawei? Back in early July AndroidPIT reported that LG will be making what we’ve been calling Nexus 5 (2015). And it’s also come to hear that Huawei will be the one making the second 2015 Nexus.

From past few months it’s been rumored that Huawei will build the second 2015 nexus, and recently a UK-based Huawei employee allegedly confirmed the rumor.

Nexus 5 (2015) release date

For quite some time now we’ve been hearing pretty consistent rumors that the Nexus 5 (2015) release date will be in October. If we go back and see Nexus 5 (2013) and Nexus 6 (2014) was launched in October, though the date was not the same. This give us a strong belief that this time also the release date will be in October.
As per the latest rumors suggests, along with the Nexus 5 Google will announce Android Pay in October. Every year with a new Nexus device Google used to release the next version of it’s Android operating system, so we can expect the release of Android M in October.
Google officially announced Android M at Google  I/O 2015, the new version comes with a lot of new features and it has squashed all the bugs of Android L and now we’ve it’s refined version. We’d say that the Android M is incremental, it has solve all the problems of L. At that time it was said that Google will roll out new Android version in Q3 of the year, this also gives us the hint of August release.

According to Android Developer Advocate Wojtek Kalicinski, the release is supposed to be ‘near final’ this means that the Google is giving the final finishing touches and it could be out in either September or October.
