Google's 'Nexus' could come in pairs and offer metal chassis, USB Type-C and fingerprint sensor

With summer almost coming to a close, smartphone enthusiasts are left with only a few more expected releases that arrive every year like clockwork. While Samsung is set to announce its latest Galaxy Note tomorrow, we still have to wait a few more months for the unveiling of the next iPhone and Google's Nexus device. Although leaks of the iPhone leave nothing to the imagination, we have yet to hear or see much of Google's next Nexus device.

Luckily, it looks like Steve Hemmerstoffer, better know as @Onleaks, has acquired some of the details of the upcoming Nexus devices. That's right! If the leaks are to be believed, Google is working with LG and Huawei to produce two different Nexus smartphones.

While Hemmerstoffer doesn't have all the details, the two devices look to have a fairly solid group of specifications. As you can see from the embedded tweets, both Nexus devices will be built from metal, have fingerprint sensors, USB Type-C and offer front-facing speakers. Although we don't have details about the CPU and other internals, Nexus devices typically tend to utilize the best the industry has to offer.

Naturally, the devices could be the best available Android handsets when they arrive, but what many will want to know is how much Google will charge for these cutting edge devices. Last year's Nexus 6 produced by Motorola deviated from traditional ' Nexus pricing' and debuted with a price tag of $640 off contract. With the introduction of newcomers like of OnePlus, it will be interesting to see how Google prices the upcoming devices.
