Google has been up to some big things in the past few months, including playing around with the very ABC’s that structure the company and announcing Android 6.0. Rumors and leaks have been flowing freely as well, of new Nexus products and even a second Chromecast. While we don’t know exactly what Mountain View has on the plates, we do know when it plans to serve them: earlier today the search giant sent out official RSVP invites for an event to be held on September 29th from 9AM in San Francisco.

Given the aforementioned leaks, we expect the conference will include the official announcement of not only the LG-made Nexus 5X/Nexus 5 (2015) but presumably the larger and more premium Huawei Nexus. It has been widely speculated that this year will not see the release of a new Nexus tablet device, something that appears all the more believable in light of the absence of leaks. Yesterday word broke that a new Chromecast refresh will also be introduced.

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.

While it’s possible additional products or services will be announced, the event will most likely focus on the Nexus devices, their pricing, availability, and to an extent, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow build running on them.

We will be there live to bring you full coverage of the event, so make sure to tune in on the 29th to see what Google has in store for what is soon to be in stores.

    I’m so looking forward to the LG Nexus device, my Nexus 5 has been acting up lately and probably needs to be replaced.

    • fitnesspro22

      Acting up? What do you mean? LG Texas will fix it for $70 if out of warranty. Just it takes about 12-14 days. LG will give you 90 days warranty. I have had problems with three Galaxies and iPhone. So far the NEXUS 5, pure Android has been the best smart phone I’v had.

      • TDN

        The battery has been dropping to zero from around 50% and has been draining pretty quickly, like from 100% to 16% in 8 hours with very light use. I think it is an app gone rogue though now and not the phone.

        • fitnesspro22

          TDN, I use apps only from the Play Store – Google. Can you get rid of that rouge app? Actually, I use no more than a dozen “running” apps. If I try an app but don’t use it a lot, it goes to “all apps”. That way, I save on battery life. Rarely, would I reach 50% on my NEXUS 5 at the end of the day. Don’ play games or watch videos. I use NEXUS 7 for reading and videos.

          • TDN

            A rogue app is not a side-loaded app or malware, it is an app that prevents the processor from going into deep sleep while you are not using your phone, thus draining the battery quicker than it should. I believe that the app causing the issue is Yahoo Mail client, but I’m going to have to watch it for a few days.

          • fitnesspro22

            Good luck go you. I love it when my processor goes into a deep sleep. Thank God, it doesn’t snore.

  • I’d still go with the more reliable LG variant Nexus 5X (or Nexus 5 (2015)). I just hope it still has wireless charging.

  • Jamie Taylor

    Exciting times. I am seriously looking at the Nexus 5 to replace my aging and slowly dying HTC M7. But have to wait until end of the year sadly.

  • Hussein Abdullah

    Well if the Huawei Nexus really will use the QSD810 I think most people will go with the LG Nexus, the 810 sucks badly, I would rather have a weaker Kirin 935 or SD 808 or the badass K1 from the Nexus9, what do you guys think? Huawei Nexus with 810 hit or miss?

    • Anon303

      SD810 is definitely a mistake. I was really looking forward to buying a Huawei Nexus but two things give me pause now; the SD810 chipset and the incredibly poor 13mp rear-camera. Why would you put those two horrible things in a “premium” flagship phone? It baffles me unless your goal was to drive customers away.

      • Hussein Abdullah

        yeah it is just sad, they should realease the Nexus line in february that way we can get the latest and best Qualcom Chips in this case the 820, releasing it in Oktober is just plain stupid as Qualcom and even Mediatek tend to bring their new flagship Chips in january or february damn you google

  • fitnesspro22

    Just a few more days and it will be decision time. NEXUS 5 or NEXUS 6, regardless of price. My instinct tells me to go with the LG N 5 so long as it is as fast or better than my NEXUS 5. The LG G4 is not selling well. It’s Dragon processor 808 should be OK but the phone has obvious LAG. Disgusting ?.
    However, it may be the bloatware and the rather high resolution that is useless. I would think that if the current NEXUS 6 is fast with the Dragon 805, than the new N5 should be just as fast with the 808. Now, I’ve been thinking about the possibility of heaving Qualcomm Dragon 820 in the N6, sometime in 2016. It is quite possible.

    • Arol Wright

      The Nexus 6 is getting the Snapdragon 810, sorry. The phone is due to be released in a month or so, there’s no way they will pack in the 820 if it hasn’t been released yet

      • fitnesspro22

        That is correct. What I wrote was that probably, later in 2016 Google may put the 820 in another iteration.

        • Arol Wright

          With Android N, most possibly. But by that time it’s probable that Qualcomm have already released the 820’s successor.
