While other specs haven t surfaced yet, past rumors suggests that it will most likely flaunt a 5.7-inch WQHD AMOLED display and come with 32GB and 64GB of onboard storage options. It is also expected to come with a 21-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner and wireless charging capabilities. BGR India had also reported earlier, that the forthcoming smartphone will also be the world s first global LTE smartphone.
The other device expected is the LG Nexus (2015) (or LG Nexus 5X). Based on some earlier reports, it is expected to be a mid-range smartphone that could flaunt a 1080p P-OLED display, a Snapdragon 620 processor, 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and a 3,180mAh battery. However, some other benchmark leaks also point to a 5.2-inch QHD display with 565ppi pixel density, 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 hexa-core CPU paired with Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
In addition to the new smartphones, Google also seems to have something else up its sleeves. Android Police has discovered Nexus Protect in Google s Online Store s source code, which is expected to be some kind of extended warranty. While other details and the supported devices aren t known yet, we will learn more when Google makes things official at its event.
