Rumors are swirling and reports are rolling in regards to when the next Nexus device(s) will be released. In the mean time, the current Nexus 6 has seen some price cuts here and there. Today, Amazon has another price cut for everyone who’s in the market for the current generation Nexus device.
Normally priced at $499, for the 32GB variant, and $549 for the 64GB variant, Amazon has slashed the prices of the Nexus 6 by $150. You can head over to Amazon via the links below and pick up the 32GB Nexus 6 for only $349.99 or the 64GB variant for only $399.99.
- Nexus 6 32GB (blue) – $349.99
- Nexus 6 64GB (blue) – $399.99
- Nexus 6 32GB (white) – $349.99
- Nexus 6 64GB (white) – $399.99
With these reports coming out about a new Nexus phone or two coming out at the end of the month, we can expect to see the price slashed for these devices. This price reduction through Amazon is probably just the first of many to come ahead of the announcement at the end of the month.
Let us know if you have picked one of these up or whether you’re holding out until the next generation gets released.

We’ve been hearing tons of rumors lately about Google’s upcoming lineup of Nexus smartphones, and it looks like we’ll finally see them officially unveiled in late September. The company is set to hold an event in San Francisco on September 29th, just in time for the holidays.
We’re expecting two Nexus devices, one of which will be a larger Huawei device and the other will be a smaller LG phone. These devices will probably be among the first Android devices to run Android Marshmallow, which we typically see with Nexus devices.
We’ve got a pretty solid idea on what both smartphones will have in terms of hardware, but pricing is still up in the air. Before the Nexus 6 last year, Google tried to set a trend with low cost devices. There’s no telling which direction the new Nexus devices will go, but we’ll know for certain by the end of the month.
Come comment on this article: Google will unveil new Nexus smartphones on September 29th in San Francisco
Google’s upcoming Nexus smartphones have been leaking like crazy, and it looks like we’re finally getting word of an announcement date. Although it’s not official, according to the folks at CNET, Google plans to unveil both new Nexus smartphones at an event on Tuesday, September 29th in San Francisco. This rumored launch date lines up perfectly with just about every other Nexus launch in the past, which is why we wouldn’t be surprised if this rumor turned out to be true. Moreover, a Korean tech site recently reported that LG’s new Nexus device would be available from September 29th, which means Google might make the new smartphones available on launch day.
So far, we’ve heard tons of rumors and even seen a few leaked photos of both Huawei and LG Nexus devices. The LG-made Nexus is rumored to come with a 5.2-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 13MP rear-facing camera. The Huawei-made device is said to sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM. Both devices will likely come with USB Type-C ports and rear-mounted fingerprint scanners, as well.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted if we hear anything official from Google, but as for now, mark your calendars for the 29th!
Google users are about to be very happy customers, if this report from CNET is found to be true. According to the report, Google will introduce the new Nexus device(s) on September 29th. Yep, that’s right, Google may be showing off TWO new Nexus phones, instead of only one.
Rumors have been flying around the next device in the traditional Nexus lineup, with reports coming everywhere that this device will be manufactured by the folks over at Huawei. There are other reports that have been leaked with information regarding an updated Nexus 5, dubbed the Nexus 5 2015. The Nexus 5 2015 would more than likely be manufactured by LG since that’s who made the first (and only one to date).
If these reports are true, and we not only get a new Nexus 6, but the updated LG Nexus 5, people will go nuts. Maybe not literally, but I would say that any pre-orders would be sold out within minutes, if not seconds.
One more interesting point to think about is where Google will price these devices. With more and more companies making competitively priced devices, it will be interesting to see where Google decides to place these devices at. It would be safe to assume that neither of these devices would top the $500 range, but stranger things have happened.
Let us know in the comments below what you think about this report, and whether you’re excited to get your hands a new Nexus device. Additionally, let us know which device you would prefer, if the rumors of the Huawei Nexus and updated Nexus 5 come to fruition.
The post Google to reportedly show off two Nexus devices on September 29th appeared first on AndroidGuys.
As we reported a few weeks ago, Steve Hemmerstoffer, the man behind @OnLeaks, released a video reportedly showing the Huawei Nexus 6.
Yesterday, he leaked images of a generic case for the Huawei Nexus 6.
— Steve Hemmerstoffer (@stagueve) September 1, 2015
The images of the case seem to confirm the existence of the camera bump and fingerprint reader. Other reported specs are a 5.7″ screen and a Type-C USB connector. It would also seem that the phone will feature a metal construction.
Take at look at these images from one of our recently published articles.
Needless to say. Nothing is official until it’s official. There are also rumors kicking around that it may have a 5.5″ screen and that Huawei has more than one prototype out there. What do you think? Do you like the design? Are you planning on picking one up? Let us know in the comments.

Two Nexus devices are expected to be released by the end of the year. Both LG and Huawei are apparently in charge of the hardware launching alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It would be LG’s third time manufacturing a Nexus device and this one could arrive as soon as September 29. Today, alleged specifications regarding the LG-made Nexus phone, likely known (again) as the Nexus 5, were detailed.
Here are the specifications offered to Android Police:
- 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 808
- 3GB of RAM
- 12.3MP / 5MP cameras
- 2700mAh battery
- 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
- White, black, or blue color options
The source did not provide Android Police with a release date or pricing; however, these specifications seem to indicate a range of $300-$500. Nexus devices typically launch in November and pricing has always been scattered. The original Nexus 5, for example, launched on Halloween night in 2013 with a $349 staring price while the Nexus 6 debuted in mid-October last year priced at $649 to start.

Nexus devices typically launch in November, a time that coincides with the release of a new version of Android. This year, however, the wait may not be so long. A report from Korean media outlet MK Post claims that a Nexus device from LG will launch on September 29. What else does this mean? Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming very soon.
The information regarding the approaching release date apparently comes from the same source that was correct about the Nexus 5’s arrival in 2014. While we cannot confirm the source’s validity, having a proven track record is certainly beneficial.
Huawei’s alleged Nexus device was not mentioned in the report.

Further pictures have emerged of what is claiming to be the as of yet unreleased Huawei Nexus prototype, at least the 5.7-inch version, given Google are expected to release two different sized Nexus devices this year.
The leak comes from @OnLeaks and gives a glimpse of what we could expect to see on such a device, if the 5.7-inch Huawei Nexus is actually a thing. On the rear of the device, you’ll probably instantly notice a fingerprint sensor as well as the elongated camera housing that stretches across the width of the device. There’s also the obligatory Nexus and Huawei branding.
On the front, there’s front-facing speakers, and edge-to-edge display – something that has become accustom in recently released Android flagships. You’ll also notice the metal exterior and frame of the device; again, something many manufacturers have been doing when moving away from plastic materials.
New Nexus devices are inevitable, but whether this is a device that we’ll see as a final release remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more details as they happen.
The post Huawei’s Nexus new leaks again, this time showing some metal appeared first on AndroidGuys.
We are edging closer to Nexus season, and this year, for the first time, it would appear that Google will be announcing two Nexus handsets made by different manufacturers – LG and Huawei. We’ve seen renders of both rumoured devices in recent weeks, and now, as you can see from the image above, images of the Huawei Nexus – Codename ‘Angler’ have been leaked. The images came courtesy of Google+ user Tiessen Fu, who, it seems, was sent the images by a friend via a Chinese instant messaging service.
Something you can immediately discern from the main image is the pronounced panel (hump) containing the camera sensor and flash. There seems to be a hint of a curve below the hump, giving the impression that it is thicker than the rest of the device. Below that is what looks like a circular fingerprint scanner. The rest of the back panel is fairly plain apart from the Nexus logo. As per the rumours, it also appears to have a metal body and frame, although it could just be a polycarbonate panel with a metallic finish.
On to the front of the alleged Huawei Nexus, and it’s a flat, black display with possibly a couple of front-facing speakers top and bottom. Apart from that, there really isn’t much to talk about.
Finally, there’s an image of the device in a case, which, thanks to the circular cut out, lends weight to the circular spot on the rear panel being a fingerprint scanner. The Huawei Nexus device is also believed to sport a 5.7-inch display, a 3,500mAh battery, as well as the almost infamous Snapdragon 810 processor.
A pinch of salt should be taken with all leaks, but, this one would seem to be pretty legit. The usual caveats apply, in that these may be pictures of an old prototype, or the device could be cancelled altogether between now and the supposed launch date around the end of October. Saying that, these pictures, combined with the renders leaked earlier this month, make a compelling case that this is, in fact, the upcoming Huawei Nexus.
