How big is the Nexus 6? Believed to be a 6-inch display, the Nexus 6 is certainly going to be polarizing. A few new videos and pictures, showing a mock-up of the Nexus 6 next to other current devices, gives us a good idea of just what we’re in for with the newest Google flagship for Android.
We’ve seen relatively little of the Nexus 6, and have been limited to digital mock-ups and shots of the device possibly being spotted in the wild. An enterprising Android fan has used some of the rumored specs to create a mock-up of the device. What you’re about to see may excite (or disappoint) you.
Google’s Nexus lineup of devices is an interesting segment of the Android market. It both provides a low-cost alternative to consumers and lets google thumb their nose at carriers. It’s also a hit-and-miss proposition most times (for various reasons), with google making a few mistakes along the way, and the latest Nexus smartphone may be the biggest mistake yet.
This afternoon the next release of Android software in the still-codenamed "Android L" has been teased for release close to the end of this year. Before we get to that release, however, there’s at least one more piece of hardware we’ve got to consider: The Nexus 9.
Google chose HTC to create their very first Nexus device, and haven’t worked with them on a Nexus device since. HTC created the HTC Flyer in 2011, and haven’t worked with tablets since. It’s time.
October is fast approaching and with it, the promise of not just Android L but of the next Nexus device. While there is still some uncertainty whether it will be another Nexus smartphone, believed to be Motorola's Nexus 6 or "Shamu", or a tablet, the media favorite seems to be the underdog, which, in this case, is HTC.
Google’s Nexus 10 languished in the doldrums since release. Never really catching on in a big way, Google focussed their efforts on the Nexus 7. As it becomes clear Google is focussing their efforts on a larger tablet once again, news emerges about just when we might be able to officially get our hands on it.
By now, the Android version of the iPad mini — the Nexus 9 — is a foregone conclusion. We’ve seen enough leaks and such to make us believe it’s coming this Fall, so this bit of info falls right in line with the rest. A peripheral keyboard, which may be a cover, has come under the Chinese version of the FCC.
