We’ve always assumed that the LG Nexus 5 2015 would be simply called the Nexus 5 – the same happened when a second Nexus 7 was released in 2013. However, the latest rumours suggest that the name “Nexus 5X” is being considered internally at Google though nothing has been decided. It seems unlikely that Google would break its own trend, though there are pros and cons for going either way. At the end of the day, the naming actually doesn’t matter that much as people are going to be getting it as soon as it drops no matter what name appears on the store page.
September 29th is hotly tipped to be the day that Google reveals all, including Android Marshmallow, a Huawei Nexus smartphone and, of course, the LG Nexus 5 2015. We’ve seen some mixed messaging about what the device will look like, but we’re relatively certain that it will feature a fingerprint scanner and is rumoured to have a Snapdragon 808 – slightly underpowered compared to the flagship powerhouses of today but likely a cost cutting measure that won’t have anybody crying to the bank.
