Google's I/O 2015 will kick off on May 28, and the company is sure to show off a raft of exciting new products. The tech giant's Nexus range will see a major change this year, as it's expected I/0 2015 will reveal a new version of the Nexus handset for the first time later this month.
An update for Google's Nexus line has been expected for several months, and this time around we may get to see a new Nexus hardware to be manufactured by the Chinese tech giant Huawei.
Although neither of the companies have confirmed the arrival of the successor to the Nexus 6, it's being speculated that the next-gen Nexus phone will be solely made by Huawei.
The alleged specifications for the forthcoming Nexus model were found on the Weibo site. Apparently, the Huawei-made Nexus handset will likely to feature a Samsung built 5.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2460. Furthermore, the next-generation Nexus hardware could be made available in two variants: one with a Snapdragon 810 processor for the global market, and the other model featuring Huawei's native Hi-Silicon Kirin chipset.
Some have speculated that updated Huawei-made Nexus phone may arrive at this year's Google I/O developer conference, but there has been no specific confirmation on the leaked rumours.
In the meanwhile, there have been no specific rumours about the the next-generation Nexus tablet, but it too is due for an update later this year. Reportedly, LG will likely to manufacture the successor to the Nexus 9 which met with harsh criticism from the mainstream tech community.
