Been waiting to hear more about Google’s newest Nexus devices? Chances are you’ll only have to wait a few weeks.
CNET reported earlier that Google would be hosting a Nexus event on the 29th, which we’ve independently confirmed is happening through our own sources.
But officially, Google said it doesn’t comment on rumors.
All evidence leads to Google announcing at least two new devices: a 5.2-inch successor to the Nexus 5, as well as 5.7-inch Nexus built by Huawei.
Both devices are rumored to have fingerprint sensor on the back and a USB Type-C charging port – new features for the nexus line.
It’ll be a particularly important showing for Huawei, which so far has had a minimal presence in the US. The LG-built Nexus 5 helped the company secure its standing as contender in the US market, so the new Nexus 6(?) could help Huawei grow outside of china.
Of course, the devices will also come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which Google first announced at its I/O event earlier this year. That OS will introduce Android Pay – hence the fingerprint sensors – as a replacement to Google Wallet. It’s also supposed to include performance and battery life improvements.
Stay tuned as we learn more.
