@evleaks just released the picture shown above which he claims to be the official press render for the new Nexus 6! What we can clearly see is that the Nexus 6. The Google Nexus 6 is made by Motorola and reportedly packs a 5.9″ QHD display, which makes it the first Nexus phablet.
Rumored specs of the Nexus 6 include a 5.9inch QHD display, 3GB of RAM and a 13MP Camera with OIS. A Snapdragon 805 will power the device. Are you excited for this one?!
The leaks regarding the new Nexus 9 tablet that HTC and Google have been working on are getting aggressive day by day. And now it’s pretty much official – as official as it can be without a press release from Google and HTC, of course.
The above image is a real photograph of the back of the Nexus 9. The Nexus 9 would be sporting a 2560*1440 p display with a Tegra K1 Chip powering the device. HTC’s stereo speakers and an 8 MP rear camera. The tablet recently got scanned through the FCC certifications.
Some big Google announcements are coming soon!
The above render is as close as we have been to the Nexus 6. As we can see it looks like the device would be coming with a new layout and improved icons. A new addition would be a folder for Google Drive and its suite of editing apps alongwith it. The latest rumor confirms a few specs about the device, they include Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, 5.9” QHD display with 496ppi, 13MP camera, and front-facing stereo speakers.
Additionally the Nexus 6 would be very close to the new Moto X in design, only a bit taller.
Google’s new version of Android – Android 5.0 L is just around the corner for its public release. Ever since KitKat, people have been coming ip with various theories about what the next version is called, definitely not “L”.
Today we see the above two pictures that come as GIF courtesy of Google celebrating their 16th birthday. What makes us think this is merely another photo and not some sign? Well as Phandroid wisely notes, who puts lollipops on a cake? Another theory states that it maybe called “Layer cake” which may also be a fair possibility here.
With a little more patience and luck we’ll get to know which flavor we are looking at over here!
Today we see a new photo of the front of the device which shows that is running on Android L on a device that actually says Shamu. For one, there’s that Motorola logo up top, complete with the coded ring that helps the manufacturer track prototype handsets.
Sooner or later we shall have well lit shots of the new Nexus which shall leave less for us to get convinces, stay tuned!
HTC refused to comment on the matter but Google said, “Android is a vibrant ecosystem, and many of the industry players are doing very well. There’s room for many partners to do well and to innovate with Android.” Google has been switching between brands so that manufacturers dont get monopoly.
There is also a motorola smartphone lined up for release later this year. Android fans, things just got interesting!
It’s safe to say that after 2 long years we still have the same Nexus hardware and form factors when it comes to tablets. There is a HTC manufactured Nexus 9 lurking behind the scenes which Google may release Mid-October. The upcoming Nexus 9 is expected to feature a 9-inch high-resolution display, and that size alone is novel for Google, but the real highlight might come in the form of the Nvidia Tegra K1 system chip that is said to power the device. Nvidia pulled out a clever campaign, marketing the Tegra K1 as a ‘192-core’ chip.
And but of course, the new Nexus may come with Android L.
We today have screenshots from AnTuTu benchmark confirming tips that the Nexus 9 will be ditching Qualcomm for an Nvidia 64 bit Tegra K1 chip with a 2560*1600 resolution spread over 9 inches. The HTC-made Android 5.0 tablet posted the impressive score of 45,923 in the popular benchmark.
