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!
