Nexus 6 could now get October release date

The device may be based on the HTC One M8.

Android Geeks has reported that Google’s next flagship smartphone, the Nexus 6, will likely be released in October.

Originally thought to be built upon the template of the upcoming LG G3, it is now a possibility that Google will partner up with HTC to manufacture the device – the same company making the Nexus 8.

The Nexus One was the first Nexus device made by HTC back in 2010, but then LG took over the helm to make the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.

Android Geeks expects the Nexus 6 to come with a 5.5-inch screen, with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and possibly up to 32GB of memory.

The release of the Nexus 6 in October could coincide with the release of Google’s next Android operating system, Android 4.5, which may be dubbed Lollipop, following the trend Android’s sweet-toothed namesakes.

Here’s a HTC Nexus 6 concept image from Aleksandar Tešic.
