If this rumor pans out, it’ll certainly be one of the biggest stories of the year. TalkAndroid writer Robert Nazarian says that a reliable source indicated to him that Google would release five Nexus-branded devices this year. All five of those devices would surface on November 5th, which is the fifth anniversary of Android’s announcement on behalf of the Open Handset Alliance back in 2007.
TalkAndroid isn’t sure if November 5th is a release date or announcement date, but we’re sure that either would be quite an event. With manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, Huawei, ZTE, Sony, and others in the mix, the Nexus devices could come from all over the board. This rumor lines up with one we recently heard about “multiple Android 5.0 Jelly Bean phones” coming from Google in the fall.
