When will the next google nexus phone be released

The nexus is a series of phones offering the pure Android experience from Google. The phones are offered through Google play store exclusively. So far three nexus devises has been released to the world.

The first Nexus cell phone was made by HTC and was called the nexus one. The next two phones was named Nexus s and Galaxy Nexus and was manufactured by Samsung.

To get an idea of when the next one will be released we will have to look at the release dates of the previous phones.

Galaxy nexus


This phone was released in January 2010 and was the first Nexus device.



This one was released in December 2010 and was the second Nexus phone.



This phone was released in November 2011. It was the first cell phone to run on Ice Cream Sandwich.



If we look at the time between the first two phones we se that there was one month short of a year between them. This in itself shows no clear pattern and could very well be a coinsidence. However if we now look at the time between the second and the third Nexus phone, once again the span between the launches is 11 months.

If Google continues this trend the next one will get here 11 months after November 2011. This would be October 2012. Not more then a month from writing moment.


Coincide with Android 5.0 ?

Another theory is that the forth generation Google nexus phone will be announced at the same time as the next version of the Android operating system. Sadly we do not know when that will be. The only rumor we have heard is that it will likely be called Key Lime Pie. Not a whole lot to go by there.

The big question then become when will the next Android Os bee here. If we look at when the new Android versions for phones has been released previously we have


2.3.x Gingerbread released December 6, 2010

4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich released October 19, 2011

4.1.x Jelly Bean July released 9, 2012

It seems to me that a new version comes around once a year. This would suggest a new Nexus phone will not be here until 2013.

My best guess is that Google will continue the trend of releasing a new device every 11 months. this would mean the next one will be be here October 2012.
