Google is going to release two smartphones of Nexus series this year. One is Nexus 5 and other is Nexus 6. These both will be released in the month of October, 2016.
Google had brought Nexus 5X with LG and achieved great success over the selling of handsets. Light weight, compact design and highly equipped smartphones always create a big change and make many records.
Nexus 5X was released in the month of September, 2015 and single Nexus 5 was released in November, 2013, but the common thing is that Google had comprised LG for it.
Google is planning to bring a new smartphone with HTC and will be named as Nexus 5. Which will come with the combination of 2013 and 2015 versions.
Before some time Droid Life had reported that Google intends to apply “Apple-like control” in all the Nexus (2016) devices. Which involves entire development of the handsets only by self means without involving any second manufacturer like LG, Huawei and HTC etc.
But after Droid Life report many other reported that Google still needs other companies to work together. This is the reason that Nexus 5 is being developed by Google and HTC.

Apple is going to feature its anticipated iPhone 7 with dual camera as well as dual lens for improving the quality of camera.
HTC doesn’t want to feature Nexus 5 with dual camera but it can improve the qualities of both the camera.
Many phones are coming with high megapixels camera, but their qualities are still poor and companies featured their phones with high megapixels camera to lure consumers but the reality is that their high megapixels cameras are failed even before 5 megapixels camera phone.
Any phone is successful in its camera performance, if that is compatible to all the conditions either that is indoor or outdoor.
Many smartphones become failed when they are brought in low light or very high light, but HTC is also focusing on this and working to make its camera compatible to all conditions.
Nexus 5 might feature 12 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 5 megapixel front camera.

Battery capacity will also be improved for offering more time. Its price would likely be in the region of US$350.
