In 2015, Google has released two Nexus smartphones: a smaller one created by LG and a flagship phablet created by Hauwei, and they came preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This year, there will be at least one Nexus that will run on the upcoming Android N OS, which is being tested by many Nexus owners, and which will have a launch by this fall. According to rumors, LG will take a break and not work on another Nexus mid-tier device, allowing Huawei and HTC to return.



While the Nexus 6P was powered by the more powerful Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 octa core processor clocked at 2GHz, the Nexus 5X received the weaker Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 chipset with a hexa core processor clocked at 1.82GHz. This year, Qualcomm has introduced its latest Snapdragon 820 chipset that’s found on many flagships (Galaxy S7, LG G5, HTC 10), and most likely, the next range of Google Nexus phones will use this chipset, because Snapdragon 830 is rumored to make its appearance only next year, while Snapdragon 823 may be used only by the upcoming “beasts”, which will cost a lot of money. Google has understood that its fans prefer a decent device with an affordable price, but to get the latest Android updates. If there will be a second Nexus with weaker specs, most likely it will pack a Snapdragon 818 chipset.

Waterproofing is a feature that Google’s OEMs avoided to introduce on their Nexuses, but this wish might be materialized in 2016. Another change that users want to see on the next Nexus smartphone is a pressure-sensitive touch display, just like that of the iPhone 6S, and Android N already included support for pressure-sensitive touch-display panels. Some rumors say that HTC has added this feature on the list and will implement it on whatever Nexus model will create for Google.

Currently, there are many popular smartphones using a 12MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0, 1.55um pixel size, 1/2.3′ sensor size and which supports features such as laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash. Most likely, the upcoming Nexus will have a camera with a wider aperture.
