With only a few hours left until the launch of the latest phones in the Nexus series, leaks about the smartphones have already started to surface, giving us a clear picture of what to expect from the new Google flagships.
The first leak comes from Android Police, who have managed to report not only the availability of the new Nexus devices but their prices as well. According to AP, the new Nexus devices will only be available online and not via a carrier store in the US. However, both the devices will support all US based carriers irrespective of the variant you go for. Personally, we don’t really know how to feel about this as this move does have its advantages as well as disadvantages. So for now we can only hope that Google manages to cope up with the high demand of the devices and doesn’t run out of stock.
Moving on, the LG Nexus will be made available for $379.99 and would be available for preorder in USA, UK, Ireland, Japan and Korea starting from September 29, 2015 right after the announcement takes place. The Huawei model, the Nexus 6P, will start from $499.99 instead and will also be available for preorder on the same date in the aforementioned countries.
The event is only a few hours away but a few other rumors from the internet are suggesting that the Nexus devices might deviate from their predecessors and introduce a MicroSD slot for additional storage. This rumor finds its basis via the FCC documentation of the Nexus devices. However, many tech news websites (Android Police included) have refuted these claims stating that their sources have clearly denied these claims.
Right now, we can only wait for the devices to be officially announced rather to jump in the rumor bandwagon. With only a few hours left till the announcement, we can hardly wait to finally catch the first official glimpse of the device!
