Google sent us a not-so-cryptic announcement about an event happening at the end of this month, which is when we’ll likely see new Nexus phones, its Android operating system refresh and more.
On September 29, the Alphabet company is hosting a presentation that asks invitees to “join us for tasty new treats and much s’more.” It doesn’t get much “s’more” obvious than that.
We’ll be there when it all goes down in San Francisco and take full advantage of the “hands-on time to follow.” There are a number of new devices Google could launch that day.
Anyone who has been following Android phone news will know that today’s invite is a major hint at the Android Marshmallow release date. The final beta launched late last month.
When Android Marshmallow comes to your phone, however, may remain a mystery long after the event. Google’s Nexus phones will get them first, as always, but phone makers and carriers are slower to roll out updates.
Nexus 5 2015 and Nexus 6 2015 release dates too
Google loves to launch its mobile operating system updates with a new phone. That’s unlikely to happen this year – it’ll be two phones, according to the latest rumors. Had you for a second.
A Nexus 5 2015 made by LG and a Nexus 6 2015 made by Huawei have been part of widespread leaks for months. Expect a pair of easier-to-hold sizes compared to last year’s Nexus 6 2014. The bigness is going to come in the form of a flagship-worthy specs bump.
Google is thought to be tying Android Marshmallow’s fingerprint sensor functionality into its new phones, and there’s a chance it’ll add a USB B Type C port, too.
We’ll be at the event, covering the announcement live, and see if any Android Wear smartwatches or a new Chromecast make their debut alongside new phones and phone software.
