Google has officially announced that their long awaited media event will wake place on September 29 at noon EDT time. That means people in the United States have to wake up at 9am PDT time in order to catch the live stream of the event. Rumors say that Google will be launching not one, but two new Nexus phone models. New information about the second generation Chromecast will be unveiled.
One of the Nexus devices is said to be created by LG and it is rumored to be called Nexus 5X. The device is exected to be equipped with a large 5.2 inch LCD screen at 1080×1920 pixels. As for the chip that will be driving the new Google flagship, it is said to be a Snapdragon 808 SoC, while the CPU will sport eight 1.8GHz cores and an Adreno 418 graphics card.
The Nexus 5X will also come with 2GB of RAM along with 32GB or 64GB native memory capacity, with the possibility to extend it up to 128GB. The rear camera will be of 13MP, while the front-facing camera will be of 5MP. The phone will have a 2700mAh battery and it will support LTE connectivity. All this with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.
Google selected a second well-known manufacturer to produce their second Nexus phone – Huawei. Although the company is not as known in the United States as it is in Europe and Asia, Google entrusted them to created the Nexus 6P.
The Huawei Nexus 6P comes with a 5.7 inch display with a 1440×2560 pixels resolution. At this size, we could say that the device is not a smartphone, but rather a phablet. A Snapdragon 810 chip will offer the device some serious power under the hood, with a 2GHz octa-core CPU and the new Adreno 430 GPU. It will have 32GB of native storage and 3GB of RAM. The 12MP rear camera and the 8MP selfie camera will be, again, a very impressive combo. The 3500mAh battery will power the entire set of impressive hardware. Obviously, as the first evice, the Nexus 6P will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.
With their latest smartphones, it seems that Google is trying to challenge Apple’s new iPhone 6s duo. Even though the Nexus devices will probably be much cheaper than Apple’s superstar, experts say that Google doesn’t stand much of a chance at competing with Apple in sales numbers on the mobile market.
