According to Twitter leaker @OnLeaks, the below image is of the backside cover from the upcoming Nexus device produced by LG, codenamed Bullhead. As a brief backstory, there are two Nexus devices rumored to launched later this year; one from LG (Bullhead), and the other from Huawei (Angler). Besides a few reports here and there, there has been little to no tangible information regarding the LG-made Nexus device to seen, but this could be our first visual of the device’s back cover.

Even though absolutely nothing has been confirmed, the world is pretty set on there being two Nexus phones this year – one from LG and another from Huawei. We have codenames for each – “bullhead” as the LG phone, “angler” as the Huawei phone – along with countless reports all claiming to know the details of each. Well, the Huawei reports are everywhere. We have yet to hear much on the LG front.
Still, the hype is real right now. People can’t stop thinking about the next Nexus phone(s).
At this time, the Huawei Nexus is thought to be the bigger of the two, with a 5.7-inch QHD display and premium body. The LG Nexus is a mystery, but we all hope it is somehow a 2015 version of the original Nexus 5, which would be a smallish phone by today’s standards, yet fully welcomed in a world full of whales.
We want to know for today’s poll, which would you most like to see/buy/molest? Would you go LG Nexus or Huawei Nexus?
Pro leakster @evleaks is at it again, posting on Twitter possible specifications for the upcoming Huawei-made Nexus device made in partnership with Google. According to Evan, the device will ship in Q4 of this year, featuring a 5.7″ QHD display, Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 820 SoC, metal (aka “premium”) body, and fingerprint reader. (more…)
Back in March, we first heard a rumor that Huawei was making the next Nexus smartphone (or at least one of them). We leaned towards believing it at the time, because a source of ours gave us the equivalent of a virtual wink when asked about it. Since that initial report, we have seen at least three others, all claiming to have heard similar stories. (more…)
Even though alleged specs have been floating around for what seems like months, any type of actual confirmation regarding a Huawei-made Nexus device has been rather limited. However, we have new information this week, as a Huawei UK employee has anonymously reached out to the International Business Times, reportedly confirming the company’s partnership with Google in creation of a Nexus smartphone.

The Nexus 6 and its whale self isn’t all that old, but it’s time to start talking about what’s next for the Nexus program. According to the crew over at Android Police, along with additional information to back up part of their claims in AOSP, we should expect two Nexus phones this year, one made by LG and another by Huawei. Yes, two phones! (more…)
Update May 20: Nexus 4 and Nexus 9 LTE Android 5.1.1 OTA .zips added. (Edit: Nexus 5 too)
Now that Android 5.1.1 factory images have been posted for a number of Nexus devices, we are starting to see the rollout of over-the-air (OTA) updates to them, namely the Nexus 7 (2012) and (2013), Nexus 10, and Nexus Player. More will arrive soon (Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 4, and Nexus 9), so we are starting to compile a list of them all below.

Thanks to a Chinese analyst, we may now know a couple of specs for the upcoming Nexus device, possibly made by Huawei.
