Google is preparing to expand its Nexus lineup this year by two new smartphones namely a 5.5-inch Marlin and a 5-inch Sailfish. Although both devices still need an official announcement, the entire net is buzzing with rumors regarding their expected design and specs. Today a new portion of news surfaced online revealing the Nexus Marlin almost complete list of specs. According to the report, the phone will come equipped with some of the most premium hardware, which will surely help the device win the smartphone championship title.
Today on the first birthday of Google Store slashed prices of the latest Nexus smartphones by $50, which is surely a great news for all of those looking for a sweet deal on a shiny new Android phone. This means that you can buy the Nexus 5X for as little as $299, whereas the Nexus 6P may be yours for $449. The offer refers to both US and Canadian customers. However, Google isn’t the only store discounting the Nexus devices today as shops like Amazon, B&H and Newegg prepared even better promos.
This week Google announced a couple of new Nexus phones and immediately made both devices available for pre-order. It’s great news for impatient users who were eyeing to update its Nexus 5 and 6. What’s not so great is that the Nexuses are sold only through the Google Store, at least for now, so the only way to get one is to pay full retail price. Even though the devices are relatively inexpensive, not everyone can afford to pay almost $650 for a new phone, and that’s how much the 128GB Nexus 6P costs. However, there is a way to make the purchase easier on the budget – Google’s Project Fi offers a 24-month no interest loan for the buy of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
It’s not unusual for a manufacturer to announce two or even more device at a time, however, Google typically doesn’t do that. This year is different, though. The company decided to please all its customers – those who love regular size phones as well as phablet aficionados, and unveiled two devices during a special Nexus event in San Francisco. In addition to the Nexus 5X, Google also made official the Huawei Nexus 6P Android Marshmallow phone.
As most companies, Google keeps annual upgrade schedule for its phones. Last year the company launched the Nexus 6 which was and still is a great device. Fans of smaller phones, however, had to wait for a new handset for as long as two years. The wait is finally over, though. As expected, Google held a Nexus even in San Francisco during which the new LG-made Nexus 5X was unveiled succeeding the Nexus 5 from 2013.
This Friday Google began to send out invitations on its press conference that will take place in San Francisco on September 29th. During the event the company is expected to unveil the latest update to its Nexus family, the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 5P. Both smartphones are expected to be the very first devices to work on Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform.
Costing as much as $649 contract-free the unlocked Motorola Nexus 6 wasn’t definitely a common choice for an ordinary budget-conscious consumer. While it got support of all major US carriers, something their predecessors couldn’t boast about, the phone was rather an expensive niche offering targeting mostly at real mobile buffs. However, since a series of new leaked details concerning the upcoming LG Nexus 5X, which may suggest that the phone may be announced officially any time soon, the Motorola’s Nexus 6 just got significantly cheaper.
Google’s Nexus phablet from Huawei live photos reveal an intriguing bump housing the device’s camera
This year for the very first time Google wants to break up with its tradition and release not one but two Nexus smartphones. We’ve already seen unofficial photos concerning the alleged 5.2-inch Nexus made by LG, today we get another portion of leaks on the Google’s Nexus project. This time the leaked photos regard the bigger 5.7-inch Nexus from Huawei and unveil an intriguing bump housing the device’s camera sensor.
According to recent rumors Google is gearing up refresh its popular Nexus family and launch not one but two new Nexus phones later this year. If the rumors turn out to be true it will be the first time in history when the company release two phones belong to Nexus lineup within a one year. Expected to be manufactured by Huawei and LG, both handsets will differ in terms of size and specs, however, will run the same Android M software out of box. Today, a new portion of leaks surfaced the net unveiling some more details concerning the Nexus devices for 2015.
When a new smartphone is announced, manufacturers often reveal pricing and availability details together with specs. Sometimes, however, they opt not to this immediately. That’s what Motorola did with the Nexus 6. The phone was announced on October 15th, but we had to wait almost the whole month to learn which carriers will offer the device, when and for how much. If you are wondering where you can buy the Google Nexus 6 on contract, here are the details.
Google Nexus 9 by HTC featuring Android Lollipop goes official, pre-orders start on October 17th, ships November 3
Just as expected, Google has announced today the fervently-awaited Nexus 9 tablet that has been created in partnership with HTC. The tablet is the very first device that operates on Android Lollipop and is said to hit the retailers’ shelves on November 3rd with pre-orders starting on October 17th. The Nexus 9 will be available in three color schemes, two capacity options and an LTE-enabled variant. Feel interested in further details? Let’s take a closer look at the slate.
Look what we got here – it’s the Nexus 6 itself still fresh from Google’s announcement. Even though we knew for weeks (unofficially obviously) that the Nexus 6 is a real deal, it’s a relief to see Google unveil its monstrous phablet. Earlier in the year it was speculated that the company could shut down the Nexus program, but fortunately this black scenario didn’t come true and the sixth generation Nexus powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop is finally official.
Motorola Shamu, aka Nexus 6, has been speculated over the net for months, and just right now we got new pics surfacing online that unveil the Motorola Shamu strongly resembling the 2nd generation Moto X in terms of the body design. The leaks also confirm our assumptions about the device’s 5.9-inch massive screen. The new Motorola’s device is reported to be announced officially next month with selling starting in November.
Due to the fact that Google’s Nexus 10 made by Samsung wasn’t able to win with Apple’s iPads, Google this time has joined its forces with HTC to bring new tablet to the market. The positive aspect of new collaboration is that both companies have at their disposal new technologies to produce more advanced and fashionable devices, as fashion has become a major selling point today. A new effort of the two companies should be visible soon as the new HTC Nexus 9 is rumored to be officially announced on October 16th.
Apparently the Google Nexus 9 has been officially confirmed by a reliable source. Nvidia has published their law documents that are being used in the court fight between the mentioned chip manufacturer, Samsung and Qualcomm. The documents don’t only confirm existence of the forthcoming slate but also unveils that it will be equipped with Nvidia Tegra K1 processor.
Have you ever wondered why manufacturers use codenames? The answer seems pretty obvious – to keep curious folks off sensitive details before a device goes official. However, in this time and day when news travels faster than light, a simple codename is not enough to keep a smartphone or a tablet a secret. How about two codenames for one device? Nope, won’t work either. That’s how we learnt that a certain HTC tablet, which goes by the name Flounder and Volantis, could be the long rumored Nexus 9. Better yet, last week the slate passed Wi-Fi certification.
Recently, there have been a lot of speculations concerning the future of Google’s Nexus project. Some of them have been saying that after the LG’s Nexus plans were denied in favor of Android silver program, there is no likelihood that Google will continue the Nexus plan. But, just right now, a new report revealed information about the tandem created by Google and Motorola are supposedly working on a device that could be the new Nexus 6.
Leak shows that the Nexus series aren’t dead yet, the Nexus 9 may be the most powerful Google tablet yet
The next Nexus device is a pretty controversial subject, partly because we can’t be sure if it actually exists, at least in plans, or is merely a product of wishful thinking mixed with creativity. One day we are tipped of Android Silver which supposedly will replace the Nexus lineup. The next day all the websites are buzzing with details of the Nexus 9. Based on the latest leaks we are inclined to believe that the Nexus series aren’t dead yet. In fact, if there’s some grain of truth in the rumors, the Nexus 9 may be the most powerful Google tablet released so far.
You like your Nexus 5, don’t you? If so, you should better treat it well, since it’s very probable that there won’t be Nexus 6. As Evan Blass (better known as @evleaks) reports, Google has decided to drop the Nexus line which means that the current generation will be the last one. Don’t worry, though. The notorious tipster @evleaks claims that “there’s a silver lining to this cloud”, most likely referring to Google’s new project called Android Silver which is believed to replace the Nexus brand.
