It’s hardly a secret anymore that we should be expecting two new Nexus phones this year from Google. It’s also hardly a secret that these phones are going to be made by LG and Huawei. What we haven’t known up until now is a firm date for when these new Nexus phones would be formally revealed to the world. Except now we know it’s going to be September 29.

Google is planning on hosting a big event on September 29 in San Francisco and the safest assumption is that this event will be used to debut the new LG-made Nexus 5 for 2015 and the unnamed Nexus phablet from Huawei. This comes slightly ahead of the “usual” schedule Google has been using, seeing how last year’s Motorola-made Nexus 6 didn’t get announced until October. Yes, September 29 is only a couple days shy of October, but that’s still earlier!

As can be expected, both the 2015 Nexus 5 and the Huawei Nexus smartphone will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow under the hood, representing the first devices to use the newest version of Google’s mobile OS. Both of the new Nexus phones are expected to get USB-C and fingerprint sensors too.

Based on earlier rumors, the new Nexus 5 should get a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 808, 3GB of RAM, 2700mAh battery and a price point south of $400. Less is known about the Huawei Nexus, though it should have a larger 5.7-inch (or so) display with Snapdragon 810.

What do you think? Are you more interested in the revival of the Nexus 5 or do you want to see how Huawei handles the Nexus treatment with its phablet?
