According to T-Mobile's senior product manager Des Smith, Nexus 6 on T-Mobile will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update soon, tweeted by him. T-Mobile was slated to roll the update out sometime in October, but discovered a major bug that halted the process, so this is actually very good news for Nexus 6 users on T-Mobile network.
Motorola has already announced which of its devices will get the Android 6.0 update, the Moto X Style and the Moto X (2nd Gen) already started receiving the Marshmallow update last week.
At today's event, Google has just launched the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The phone is built around a 5.2" IPS LCD display of 1080p resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 424ppi. The screen is covered with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3.
Google launches the Nexus 5X with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It runs on the Snapdragon 808 chipset with a hexa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 418 GPU. Internal storage is either 16GB or 32GB with no option to expand it.
Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2x2 MIMO), NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS/GLONASS. There's a single front-facing speaker, which is joined by 3 microphones (at the front, top and bottom).
The LG Nexus 5X will be available for pre-order starting September 29. Those in the US, UK, South Korea, Japan and Ireland will be able to pre-order the phone starting at $379.99 for the 32GB variant.
Google and Huawei positioned the Google Nexus 6P against the flagship phablets with a smaller 5.7" screen. It's still an AMOLED with QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560px), the front-facing speakers were also carried over to the new design. The whole thing measures 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm, just a tad taller than an iPhone 6 Plus despite the two front speakers.
The camera was spruced up as well with a new 12.3MP sensor, which boasts large 1.55µm pixels and a relatively wide F/2.0 aperture. This is in addition to the dual-LED flash for promising low-light performance. It records 2160p, naturally. The selfie camera is no slouch either 8MP sensor with 1.4µm pixels and F/2.4 aperture.
A highlight of both Android 6.0 Marshmallow which debuts with the Nexus 6P and the phablet itself is native fingerprint reader support. The reader is on the back instead of the Apple-preferred front position.
Another Marshmallow feature is Doze, which promises improved battery life with lower standby power use. The 6P further helps that cause with a bigger battery 3,450mAh, bigger than both the Nexus 6 and Note5 batteries.
The Nexus 6P is powered by a Snapdragon 810 chipset (the cooler-running v2.1 refresh). It should give games on the QHD screen a boost compared to the Snapdragon 805 in last year's Nexus 6. The chipset is paired with 3GB of RAM (same as last year).
The metal unibody comes in plain Aluminum, Graphite, Frost and Gold colors (however, the Gold one is exclusive to Japan for now).
The Nexus 6P 32GB will cost $500 and will be available in multiple countries starting today (others will have to wait a bit). For the 64GB model expect to pay $550 and for the 128GB $650. In the UK and Europe those prices are £450/£500/£580 and €650/€700/€800.
We reported before that Google is holding an important event on September,29th in San Francisco to announce TWO new Nexus flagships (5" and 6"). According to some new information leaked around the web, the two devices will be respectively called LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P.
As we know by now, the two phones will have 5-inch and 6-inch displays and will be manufactured by LG and Huawei, respectively. The Nexus 5X name had already been floating around for a while and now we also know that the bigger device might be called 6P. We have no information about what the "P" stands for... The hardware specs is still not fully confirmed but SD 810 and 3GB Ram are for sure included on both devices.
We are only 2 weeks away from the Big event that will also feature the announcement of the official Android 6.0 Marshmallow final release.
Rumors are spreading around an upcoming LG Nexus 5 (2015) that should arrive this year. We got the full detailed specs list along with some live photos of this device.
The LG Nexus 5 (2015) alleged live photo above gives us a hint of how the device will look like upon the official release which will be on September 29th, according to a South Korean media outlet which cited a credible source.
As far as the 2015 LG Nexus 5 spec and features goes, according to some Chinese sources, it will be packing Snapdragon 808 chipset, 5.2-inch 2560 × 1440 display, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 13MP camera with the same OIS tech like the one included inside the LG G4 along with a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C connector and running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box.
There was, however, no word on the release date of the Nexus device being manufactured by Huawei. If you aren't already aware, two Nexus handsets are expected this year the one from LG is said to sport a 5.2" screen, while that from Huawei is said to be a 5.7" phablet.
