Nexus 5
Reports of Google's Nexus 6 has surfaced with Google in partnership with HTC into releasing its next flagship phone. Along with the new Nexus 8, recent reports also note that the Google may be releasing a new mobile operating system with it. Will the Nexus 6 ship with Android 4.5 this year?

Nonetheless, analysts think that despite the template, Google will want to tweak the specs more to match its pricing preference. Based from previous Nexus programs, Google has been specific about including premium features on its devices but for a good price. The Nexus program has been competitive because of its focus and it does not seem Google plans on changing that strategy any time soon.

According to a report by Android Geeks, the Nexus 6 will come with a 5.5-inch display, quadcore Snapdragon 801 processor, 16GB/32GB internal memory plus 2GB RAM.

The report also noted that there are high expectations for the Nexus 6. The Nexus 5 is among the fastest and most stable Android devices tested today. There are also reports that Google has been working on a new mobile operating system, the Android 4.5.

Google's I/O event will be around June and analysts are expecting to unveil a new operating system by then. While there are reports of the Android 4.4.3, Android 4.5 started surfacing again. According to a report by Trusted Reviews, some of the expected features include:
  • Improved Google Now
  • Better security
  • Faster performance and improved battery life
  • Multi-window support
  • Enhanced camera
  • Smartwatch connectivity
  • Enhanced functionality
Google will have to make an official announcement about the operating system and device. Android 4.5 will reportedly come around June or July whereas the Nexus 6 will be around October.
