Nexus 5 2015 (2nd generation): did Google just leak the next Nexus?

Huawei is reportedly developing a second-generation Nexus 5 that will arrive before the end of the year and Google may have just leaked it in the promo video for their new Project Fi wireless carrier project. Could this be the Nexus 5 2015?


While it seems impossible that Google would so blatantly reveal an unreleased device in a publicity video (remember how obscure the Nexus 5 was in the last video leak from Google – just go to 0:38), it is odd that Google would not just use the Nexus 6 – the only Android device to currently work with Project Fi – to demonstrate the project.


So while this picture is probably just a generic render for illustration purposes, one has to question why Google would go to the trouble of creating a new product render rather than just use an actual device that exists and that is linked to the project. So, I ask you: could this be the Huawei-built Nexus 5 2015?


The Nexus 5 has been one of the standout devices of the past two years. The Nexus 6 – its acclaimed successor – has not had the same impact.

With Huawei in the driving seat, the Nexus 5 2015 price would likely be similar to that of the original Nexus 5 (which costs 349 USD, while the Nexus 6 comes in at 649 USD).

As for what will be offered in terms of the Nexus 5 2nd generation specs, it’s too early to say, but Huawei might be keen to implement its own Kirin technology rather than use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
