There are rumors that point to the date on which Google will confirm the poorly hidden LG and Huawei Nexus phones. Now there's a rumor that plugs the pre-order piece of the puzzle.
There have already been plenty of leaks, describing and depicting the new Nexus handsets, but now there is information about reservations.
Upon information and belief, influenced by a Talk Android report, Google will start accepting advanced orders of the Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus on Oct. 13. The report puts the start of pre-orders about two weeks out from date that has been floated around for the introduction of the new Nexus phones.
Google is expected to unveil the 5-inch LG Nexus 5X and the 6-inch Huawei Nexus at an event scheduled for Sept. 29 in San Francisco, but Google hasn't confirmed the event.
The Nexus 5X, expected to be priced around $400, will have a 5.2 inch display that puts out a 1080p resolution and a 12.7 MP rear camera. It'll have a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM and native storage options of 16 GB or 32 GB.
Details about the Nexus Huawei are less defined, with some reports placing the device's face at 5.7 inches and other asserting the handset will have a 5.5-inch display. The Nexus Huawei is expected to include 3 GB of RAM and to offer 32 GB of storage in at least one version.
Beyond dates and hardware details, there's one bit of information about the new handsets that no one is questioning. It's their operating system.
Each time Google has a new OS on the way, it uses its Nexus line to introduce the latest version of Android in its purest form. The Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus will both run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
For now, Marshmallow is the only thing certain about the new Nexus phones. But there has been a flood of leaked material indicating that something is coming down the pipeline soon.
