The Nexus 5X is collaborated with LG and will come in a 5.2-inch display packed with a compact and light package.

Google has confirmed that the two-year old Nexus 7 models are going to be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow later next week. Yes, Google is expected to roll out Android Marshmallow to its Nexus devices starting on the 5th of October. The Huawei-built device was just announced yesterday, and Android enthusiasts already boasts that it is much better than its main competitor – the iPhone 6s Plus.

The move by Google could be seen as an effect of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to the West Coast in the United States during which he met the newly-appointed Indian-born Google chief executive Sundar Pichai. Each device comes with a 12.3-megapixel rear camera and USB Type-C port for faster battery charging. On the other hand, the 5X weighs 136g, has a smaller battery unit of 2700mAh and it’s available in three color variants of blue, white and black. So it makes sense to believe that those new devices will hit the market soon and hopefully, before Google outs Android 6.0.

Chromecast Audio: Along with updating its digital media playing Chromecast plug-in stick, Google’s media universe expands with the new Chromecast Audio circular device – meant to resemble a vinyl record – that allows streaming music to play from a home audio system. “With people in emerging economies moving to smartphones especially with our Android One initiative that offers high-quality yet affordable smartphones, we are on route to meet the target of getting the next billion users online”, he said.


Pre-orders for the Nexus 5X are open to consumers in Korea as it is made by a domestic firm, but not for the Nexus 6P.
