Huawei Nexus phone picks up a launch name in latest rumor

Google has still yet to make anything official, but the consensus from the rumor mill seems clear: we’re about to get two new Nexus phones this season, a first for the family. All evidence points to an LG-made smaller handset launching a larger Huawei phablet, and if we’re to believe the latest chatter, Google could be ramping up for a launch announcement later this month. But when that happens, how will these phones arrive? At first a number of outlets were calling these guys the 2015 Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, but only because those seemed like logical labels – none of that was ever supported by evidence. In the weeks since, we’ve heard that the LG phone might launch as the Nexus 5X, but we haven’t picked up on a similar name for the Huawei model. Now a new rumor adds additional support to that LG name, while finally offering one for the Huawei Nexus.

Reportedly, our new Nexus smartphones will launch as the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.

Is that P for phablet? Maybe P for plus? We can’t say just yet, but a “reliable” source sure indicates it’s how the Huawei Nexus will arrive. Beyond offering the name, the source also claims that recently leaked photos of both the LG and Huawei Nexus handsets do indeed accurately represent phone hardware.

As we get into the home stretch now, there are only a few important questions about the new Nexus phones remaining. Will pricing be the next mystery to be tackled? Stay tuned.
