When you don’t manufacture your own phones there will always be leaked photos and speculation, tomorrow is no different ahead of the search giant’s smartphone event.
What to expect from Google tomorrow outside of phones
Tomorrow’s San Francisco’s press event for the Mountain View, CA-based Google will certainly feature the unveiling of at least two smart phones, but is the company planning on showing us anything else?
While a number of sites plan to live stream the event, lets take a shot at reading a search engine company’s mind. In addition to two phones, many in the know expect to see Google’s latest Android OS Marshmallow finally being run in real-time. Additionally, it’s widely believed that Google will show us new versions of its Chromecast dongle that allow for streaming from tablets, smartphones and computers to a TV equipped with said devices.
Others are suggesting that Google also plans to unveil a device that plugs into speakers via miniplug and allows streaming of music from smartphones and tablets.
Nexus 6P rumors
Before getting to the rumors, we know that the new Nexus flagship phone is being produced by Huawei and near certain that it will be the first all-metal unibody designed flagship smartphone. It’s believed that the 6P will offer a 5.7-inch display made with Gorilla Glass 4. Nearly every site speculating has the Nexus 6P powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor and available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GBs of storage. Color choices should be aluminum, graphite, or frost with gold offered solely in Japan.
The phone is meant to offer a backside fingerprint sensor and come with with dual front-ported speakers and a USB-C charger.
The site Android Police has said that the 6P will be available for pre-order tomorrow, starting at $499.99 in the U.S, U.K., Ireland, Canada, and Japan.
Nexus 5X rumors
Once again we know who the manufacturer of the phone itself is…in this case it’s the third LG-built phone to go to the market and should be plastic bodied while listed at $379.
The 5X should also have a fingerprint scanner on the back as well as two front-facing speakers. The camera is believed to have a dual-LED flash to accompany the 12-megapixel rear camera.
Like the Nexus 6P, the 5X should be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor.
We shall know together tomorrow.
