Upcoming LG Nexus Might Feature A Different Name And Be Much Cheaper Than Nexus 6


There have been several leaks surrounding the upcoming LG Nexus, and now we have received word that the upcoming device might not even be called LG Nexus, but will feature a completely different name. In addition, perhaps the biggest source of comfort for future Nexus consumers will be that the handset is going to be much cheaper compared to the ridiculously priced Nexus 6 from Motorola.

LG Nexus Is Most Likely Going To Be Called Nexus 5X And Will Feature A Starting Price Of $399

According to a source, LG Nexus is most probably going to be called Nexus 5X and might have a starting price of $399. If the rumor turns out to be true, then future Android smartphone consumers will be relieved to hear that they will not have to spend an exorbitant amount in order to upgrade their devices. The previous generation Nexus 6, which was rolled out thanks to the collaboration of Motorola and Google, featured a whopping screen size of 5.9 inches.

Despite the fact that it was incorporated with impressive hardware, Google moved away from providing the market with a price/performance smartphone, which is possibly the only reason why Nexus 6 was unable to garner significant amounts of popularity. In order to sell as many handsets as possible, Google and LG will be aiming to provide consumers with the perfect balance between price and performance. According to the previous reports, the upcoming LG Nexus is going to sport a Snapdragon 808 SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM.

Depending on when the smartphone is going to be released, it could either be running Android Lollipop or Android Marshmallow. Not long ago, we came across the leaked AnTuTu scores of LG Nexus, where the device obtained a score of 85,000 points. With such a high score, we immediately believed that a Snapdragon 820 was going to be present the hood of the device, but we are still waiting for both Google and LG to surprise us.

It is also possible that the upcoming smartphone is going to be incorporated with a dual-rear camera setup, but we are going to have to wait for more leaks to come through before we can provide an accurate description of what to expect from the upcoming LG Nexus. We will keep you updated with the latest.
