For most of this year, Google has been rumored to be working with both LG and Huawei on two new Nexus smartphones - a new Nexus 6 phablet made by the Chinese company, and a successor to the Nexus 5 from 2013 by the Koreans. The two handsets have been leaking so much lately that their existence is as good as confirmed.
Well, a new rumor comes to clear that aspect up too. According to an unnamed source, October 13 is when Google will start taking pre-orders for the duo. That is, coincidentally or not, exactly two weeks after the rumored September 29 event. Unfortunately though, this source could not provide an estimate of when the phones will be shipping.
With past Nexus releases, that's generally happened 1 to 3 weeks after pre-orders started. Obviously however, things could be different this time around. Also keep in mind that such timetables are known to change, so even if this information is accurate now (and that's quite an "if"), there's no guarantee that October 13 will actually be the big day.
Good luck waiting forever then
I'm getting quite impatient. The phone looks great, who cares about the bump. I hope the delays are to get the 820 processor? Pretty please!
I sincerely hope the final product is not this ugly, because I'm not paying $650 for a phone that looks like that. I'm also not paying $650 for a phone that has less than a 4,000 mAh battery.
