According to Android Police ‘sources’ we might finally see a Nexus-branded device with a decent amount of storage. After what seems an eternity (in the Australian market) of Android devices coming with limited storage on board Google may finally be releasing the incoming Huawei Nexus 5.7″ device with 128 GB of internal storage. This should be sufficient for all but the most extreme users.
Over the years we have seen Google add more storage to the Nexus line up:
- Nexus 4, 8 & 16 GB options
- Nexus 5, 16 & 32 GB options
- Nexus 6, 32 & 64 GB options
If the rumour is correct we will see the Huawei Nexus 2015 offer 32, 64 and 128 GB variants. Long has the call been for Google, and all other Android OEMs, to include a high capacity device in their line up especially with Google’s history of changing how SD cards work with the Android operating system. Time will tell if firstly the rumour is correct, and secondly if the higher capacity model makes it to Australian shelves. Even if bricks and mortar retail stores don’t carry a larger capacity device you should always be able to get it via the Google Store online. Remember storage won’t be free so expect to pay a premium for the higher capacity models.
No information has come to light for the LG Nexus 5 storage capacity, however if the rumours of the LG device being a slightly more ‘affordable’ – don’t read cheap or you may be disappointed – device we may not see such high capacity variant out of LG’s long awaited follow-up to the Nexus 5 2013. We won’t have long to wait to find out with Google confirming their September 29th event. We will be covering the event live as always so feel free to join us in the dead of the night or wake up to our fresh coverage the next day.
