Tees up phone launch with Android 5.0 release.

Google is planning on releasing up to five Nexus devices to mark the launch of Android 5.0 Jelly Bean according to The Wall Street Journal.

The search giant is expected to reveal the plans for its Nexus launch at Google I/O later this year, and will reportedly sell all of the new unlocked handsets directly from November, when Android 5.0 Jelly Bean is released.

Phone manufacturers are yet to announce their plans for the Nexus range. HTC and Samsung have both previously released Nexus phones.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt last December spoke of plans to manufacture a "high quality tablet" with Asus rumoured to be the manufacturer.
