The long wait is over, Google has announced the new additions to their Nexus lineup. Google has made the announcement via their blog.
The Nexus 6 will be the newest addition to the smartphone lineup. The Nexus 6, built by Motorola, will feature a 6" quad-hd smartphone (2560x1440) screen in addition to a 13 MP camera. The Nexus 6 will of course be running Android 5.0 (Lolipop) and also give you a Turbocharge feature which will allow you to get 6 hours of battery life on a 15 minute charge.
The Nexus 9 will be the update to Google's tablet lineup. The Nexus 9 will be produced by HTC and will feature a 8.9" screen and will give you an option for a magnetically attached keyboard. The Nexus 9 will of course also be running Android 5.0 and will be available for pre-order in late October and hitting store shelves sometime in November.
The last announcement was for the Nexus Player, which will be built by Asus and it is a streaming media player (kinda like the one that every other company produces). You'll be able to play Android games on your TV, stream media, and all that fun stuff. The Nexus player will be available for pre-order late October and also be on store shelves sometime in November.
I think overall I'd say the wait was worth it for Nexus fans as all 3 products seems to have gone over relatively well so far. Thoughts? Use the forum link below.
