New Nexus phones could be just around the corner: Google on Friday sent out invitations to a press event on Tuesday September 29, here in San Francisco.
While Google hasn’t offered any clues as to what’s in store, people familiar with the company’s plans told CNET that the we can expect two versions of the Nexus smartphone: a large model developed by Huawei, and a smaller device built by LG. These devices would be the first to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A recent report also suggested there could be a new version of the Google Chromecast.
Plenty of questions remain: there’s no word on price, though “sources” have provided some possible information about the mystery phones’ specifications. The Nexus 5X is reportedly being developed by LG, and would feature a 5.2-inch display, while Huawei’s larger Nexus 6P would pack a 5.7-inch screen.
