Off late, there’s been no shortage of rumors related to the upcoming Google Nexus smartphones. LG and Huawei are making two Nexus smartphones this year, and the company might just ditch the launch of a new tablet altogether. Now, a new leak has just surfaced indicating that the upcoming LG Nexus will also have a fingerprint sensor, just like the Huawei Nexus smartphone.
This report comes out of Korea Herald which cites a ‘market official’ who confirmed that the upcoming LG Nexus will come with a fingerprint scanner as well. The source further also hinted that all of LG’s future flagships will come with fingerprint sensors.
A separate report by Business Korea also states that LG is teaming up with Google to roll out Android Pay with the Nexus smartphone this year. This doesn’t come as a surprise as Google detailed Android Pay at I/O earlier, indicating an eventual launch with the next version of Android, which will almost certainly comes preloaded on any next Nexus devices.
The LG Nexus (2015) is said to be a less premium variant, with a smaller build. It is expected to feature a 5.2-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, a Snapdragon 620 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, a 64GB internal storage, a 13-megapixel f/1.8 camera at the back with optical image stabilization (OIS) and laser autofocus, a 4-megapixel selfie camera, a 3,180mAh battery with wireless charging, and connectivity options like NFC and Bluetooth.
On the other hand, the Huawei Nexus (2015) is said to feature a metal body, a large 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 21-megapixel rear camera, and a battery with wireless charging support.
