HUAWEI Nexus said to feature 128GB of storage space

The upcoming HUAWEI Nexus is rumored to arrive in a 128GB storage option, a first for a Nexus smartphone.

This year we are expecting to be treated to not one but two new Nexus smartphones, a high end refresh from LG and an even more powerful variant from HUAWEI. According to the latest leak, the HUAWEI Nexus will also be the first Nexus smartphone to ship in a 128GB storage variant.

Given that Google doesn’t seem too committed to supporting the much loved microSD card slot these days, it is unlikely that these new Nexus phones will come with expandable storage, despite Android Marshmallow’s friendlier stance on microSD. Larger amounts of internal memory should help to satisfy the heavy media consumers out there, although we will have to accept a moderate mark up on the price tag for the extra storage space. We can probably expect 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options from HUAWEI.

The source doesn’t mention anything about the new LG Nexus’ storage capacities. Given the slightly lower processing power rumor, we can probably expect the more typical 16GB and 32GB memory options here. A 64GB model would be nice too.

The new Nexus phones from HUAWEI and LG are expected to be unveiled in a little over on weeks’ time, at a Google event taking place on September 29th in San Francisco. Do you need as much storage space as possible in your smartphone?
