Android Authority this week – October 11, 2015

Moto X Pure Edition Vs Nexus 6-2

Android fans, this week was all about Marshmallow. Google released Android 6.0 factory images for its Nexus lineup and kicked off a delightfully problem-free (so far) OTA rollout. All eyes are now on manufacturers – some, like Sony, have already come clean about the devices they plan to update to Marshmallow, while in the case of others, we have rumors and speculation. In other news, OnePlus began teasing the OnePlus X, amid increasing skepticism about its business model; Sony gave itself an ultimatum to fix its mobile business; the One A9 leaked again; and the Paranoid Android project was revealed to be all but dead.

This week we began our little experiment with live broadcasting, and we’re happy to say we had some great reactions. Nirave unboxed his Xperia Z5 live on Periscope, and it’s just the beginning: expect more unboxings, Q&As, AMAs, and event impressions in the future. What’s all the fuss about? Sign up for Periscope and follow us to find out.

What’s coming up? HTC’s “hero smartphone” (which just leaked, again) is coming October 20. OnePlus wants a second chance with the OnePlus X, possibly coming as soon as next week. And, of course, the Nexus 5X and 6P are going to ship really soon. Stay tuned for our coverage.

Speaking of Nexus phones, this week we’re giving you the chance to win a Nexus 5X! Enter our giveaway to secure your sweepstakes ticket.
