It was in the news last week that Google is expected to announce an event for end of this month, September 29th to be more precise in order to launch the new Nexus devices. Not just this, it is expected that Google will also announce a new and improved Chromecast at the event so it would not be all about just the Nexus devices, and just in case you thought there would be an upgrade on the Nexus line of tablets, then unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be happening either.
Anyway, as for the phones, it is expected Google will announce two Nexus smartphones in order to cater to two different product segments. It is expected that the first Nexus would be a Nexus 5 device that would be manufactured by LG, succeeding the old Nexus 5 by LG, and come with a 5.2 inch display and be powered by Snapdragon 808 SoC while the other Nexus would be catering to the phablet lovers, and will be 6 inches and manufactured by Huawei, succeeding the Nexus 6 manufactured by Motorola, and powered by Snapdragon 810 SoC. Both the phones will bring a finger print sensor with them so you will be able to unlock your phones easily.
While the prices of the phones are still not clear, there are reports suggesting that the Nexus 5 will be called the Nexus 5X, a name that has been thrown around a fair few times while the Nexus 6 will be called Nexus 6P. It is not clear what these monikers stand for, but X is supposedly going to stand for Extra while P would stand for Plus indicating the Phablet size of the phone. The cost of the phones is not known but it is expected that the Nexus devices this time would be around the $400 mark for the smaller one and $500 for the larger one which would be pretty much in sync with what it was last year.
