NEW YORK – After weeks of leaks and speculation, Google’s new devices are finally here.
The internet giant has just announced the launch of the new Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet.
And both will come pre-loaded with the company’s latest Android Lollipop operating system.
Google have turned to two new companies for these devices; the Nexus 6 is being produced by Motorola whilst the tablet is coming from HTC.
As reported by the Daily Star Online, the Nexus 6 will land in your hand with a massive 5.96-inch HD display, which is one of the biggest screens currently on the market.
It’ll be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and come with 32GB or 64GB of storage.
It also features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with image stabilisation and selfies can be snapped on a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Google are also bragging about their new battery which, they say, will bring six hours of life with just 15 minutes of charge and 24 hours when the tank is full.
Design-wise the Nexus 6 is basically a blown-up version of the Moto X and, like the previous Nexus 5, will come in two colours.
If you’re after a tablet then Google has also given fans their first glimpse of the Nexus 9.
This 8.9-inch device is powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.
It’s been built with a thin bezel and includes some nice touches such as brushed metal sides and three subtle colours.
There’s a 16GB and 32GB model and both come with 8-megapixel rear and 1.6-megapixel front facing cameras.
A detachable keyboard has also been designed for the tablet, although this will be sold separatley.
Prices aren’t currently available, but both the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 will be available to pre-order from October 17th.
