Rumor: Google Nexus Event May Happen At September 29
According to CNet, a recent rumor suggests that Google is planning for a press event in San Francisco on September 29 at which it will reveal two new Nexus smartphones running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The first Nexus device is from LG with a 5.2-inch display, while Huawei makes the second Nexus smartphone with a larger 5.7-inch display. Both the devices may also have rear-mounted fingerprint sensors and USB Type-C ports.
The Nexus smartphones are essentially Google’s “flagship” devices that show off the latest version of its Android software. The two upcoming Nexus devices will be the first smartphone to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Google’s Nexus phones are kind of baseline for Android, a demonstration of the platform without any third-party apps or skins. As such, they are particularly in demand by developers, or people who want the fastest possible Android updates direct from Google. Nexus devices can also be cheaper than competing products while offering comparable performance.
At this point, we have seen and heard pretty much everything about both LG’s and Huawei’s Nexus smartphones.
The LG Nexus will be a 5.2-inch model with a 1080p screen, and previous rumors have indicated that the processor will be a Snapdragon 808. The Huawei’s first Nexus phone for Google will use a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 screen and a Snapdragon 810 processor. Both devices will use a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the case. It is widely believed that the Huawei Nexus phone will be sold at the high end of the spectrum, with the LG phone carrying a more mid-range price.
There is no official confirmation from Google about the September 29 Nexus event and according to CNet, Google Spokesperson has refused to comment on this rumor.
