Google Nexus rumors are out again and this time include details of the Nexus 6, 8 and 9. There is still nothing concrete from the tech giant itself, so the rumors could well just get hopes up have them dashed once again. Rumors for new Nexus tablets have been ripe since October last year when the Nexus 10 2 was expected to be released.
One of the first Google Nexus rumors is the release date of the Nexus 6. This is expected to be around October or November of this year for a few reasons. The first is that this is the time of year Google usually releases products. They hit just before the Christmas sales, so more people are looking at buying the gadgets then.
The last Google Nexus product released was in October last year, so it would make sense to wait for a year before releasing another. The tech giant is not the only company to follow this rule. Apple has followed this for the past few years now with the release of the iPhone.
October and November is also great for lack of competition. In September, the iPhone 6 is expected to be released. Samsung is also thought to be releasing its new Galaxy phone around then. By waiting for a month, Google will get more publicity for its new Nexus device, so more people are likely to buy it. Some people even hold off to wait to see if Google will release anything new just before Christmas.
The Google Nexus rumors are not just about the Nexus 6, but also about the Nexus 8 and 9. Some expect either of these to come out soon because they are products that the people want.
At the moment, the company has a 7-inch and a 10-inch tablet. While both of these have their benefits, they also have their downsides. The 10-inch tablet is too big for carrying, while the 7-inch is too small for viewing. Something in the middle would be perfect, which is where the 8 and 9 versions come in.
The Google Nexus 8 has been one of the devices rumored since the end of 2013. Many of the rumors of the technology have not changed. It is still expected to be manufactured by LG or HTC, and the device will be around 8.9 inches. It is also expected to have a 64-bit processor and have both the LTE and WiFi-only options.
Rumors about the Nexus 9 are relatively new. They include a higher price tag compared to normal, sitting at just short of $400. It is also expected to be made by HTC. According to BGR, the display will be 8.9 inches, which is the same as the Nexus 8 rumors. Could it be that the two are being mixed up?
There are constantly rumors about new Nexus devices. People want to see something new from the tech giant, especially since the release of the Nexus 7 2 towards the end of last year. However, the recent Google Nexus rumors, which include rumors of the Nexus 6, 8, and 9, have not yet been confirmed by the company itself and are just reports from various publications.
