Google Is Coming Out With a Whole New Phone on October 4
Google has released a video teasing its upcoming October 4 event in San Francisco, and with it, some details about their new offerings. From what we can tell, it is likely that Google will release their new phones — however, it is uncertain whether the new devices will fall under the Nexus brand.
We aren’t sure yet what the new phones will look like, but this photo found by The Verge in Google’s “made by” site seems to be our first glimpse. According to a recent report on Android Central, Google will be dropping the Nexus name. However, the phones are reportedly still being built by HTC.
Android Police says we’ll see two phones: a 5-inch and a 5.5-inch model allegedly called the Pixel X and Pixel XL. Based on last year’s all-metal Nexus 6P, it’s likely that this year’s phones will be metal as well. Android Central says that the devices will come with a special version of Android Nougat, instead of a stock version.
