The site, post.mk.co.kr has received information about an early release from a trusted source who they say has a history of predicting the launch times of previous LG Nexus phones, with a correct prediction for the LG built Nexus 5 in 2014. Their anonymous source has advised that the phone will be announced on September 29th with the phone then being made availabile through Google Play.
The site has referenced recently rumoured specs for the phone which include a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 5.2″ 2K (2560×1440) resolution display, Fingerprint sensor, USB-C connector and a 13MP camera with OIS, laser Auto-Focus and of course Android Marshmallow running the show.
Google hasn’t always released new Nexus phones in October, but this would be an earlier schedule than we’ve seen in recent years. Of course we only have one source at the moment, so it remains to be seen if any further corroborating evidence can be found. The current ‘in the wild’ pictures of both the LG built Nexus 5 2015 and the Huawei built Nexus 6 2015 look to be almost ready for launch so maybe there is some credibility to this latest rumour.
Is late September too early? Too late?
