Well, we are almost near to witness the launch of 2015 Nexus devices from Google. The search giant sent out the official event invite that is going to be held on September 29th from 9AM in San Francisco. While the invitation doesn’t say much about the event, one could easily tag it to most awaited launch of LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P devices.
We have been listening to a lot of leaks about the possible Nexus devices for 2015. Google has always been very secretive about their events. Even the upcoming invite just says about “conversation about some new treats from Google”. What that could be after all?
Will it be LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P?
There have been a series of leaks and rumors about the design and specifications of the next gen Nexus devices. As per rumors, we are going to see two Nexus devices this time around, unlike traditional one device what we have seen so far. As per the new information received, these devices will be called as LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P.
With respect to the specifications of LG Nexus 5X, it is supposed to be powered by Snapdragon 808 hexa-core SoC along with 3GB of RAM. It will flaunt a 5.2 inch full HD display, 13MP rear and 5MP or 8MP front facing camera. It will be coming with USB Type-C connecting port and a fingerprint sensor on the rear just below the camera. It is expected to be priced at $400.
Unlike LG-made Nexus device, Huawei-made Nexus 6P will a higher end device and will feature a metallic construction. Nexus 6P will have a 5.7 inch QHD (2560x1440p) display. On the processor front, we have seen very confusing leaks, one says Snapdragon 810 and another with Snapdragon 820. As Huawei has their own SoC unit, we might even see the company’s own Krin processor as well with 3GB of RAM. As per the latest leak, this device might also have 13MP rear and 8MP front camera. There will be 32GB inbuilt memory and no info about the expandable memory. Similar Nexus 5X, this device will also feature USB Type-C port and a fingerprint sensor.
Without any doubt, both the device will be running on latest Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box.
Second Gen Chromecast?
Yes, Google is making a second version of its TV stick Chromecast that got leaked yesterday. According to the leaked document, there will be an improved WiFi that could result in a faster connection for streaming. It features an all new design more or like a circular form factor. There are at least three color options yellow, red and black.
In terms of the features the new Chromecast will have unexplained “Fast Play” functionality which might be for better connectivity for streaming data. “Chromecast Audio” is an another feature that enables the Chromecast to plug into speakers or any audio playback hardware and provide high quality output.
We can even see a Nexus branded tablet which has not leaked so far.
It might be LG Nexus 5X, Huaweu Nexus 6P and second gen Chromecast devices launching on September 29 or none of the above. These are all our guesses that might get launched. The search might even surprise us as well. All we have to do is, stay put and wait for few more days for the official announcement!
