Will today be the day of the Nexus and the official unveiling of Android L (possibly Licorice or Lollipop)? Quite a few people seem to think so. Just yesterday, we talked about how the Google Nexus 6 may possibly be unveiled today, alongside the rumored official release of Android L (and possibly the HTC-built Google Nexus 9). And now, we’ve gone ahead and added a forum for Google and Motorola’s upcoming whale of a device with our new forum for the Google Nexus 6.
The Google Nexus 6 is a device that needs no introduction. Google’s and Motorola’s upcoming flagship Shamu has been leaked so many times in the last few weeks, that we can nearly taste its large, 5.2″ (or 5.9″, depe. . . READ ON »

We know that rumors can grow tiresome after a while, and there have certainly been quite a few surrounding the upcoming Motorola Nexus 6 and HTC Nexus 9 releases. Now, there’s a new set of rumors that place both of these releases, as well as the official release of Android L, tomorrow.
The plot thickens after Forbes magazine announced that Google will release at least one of its devices tomorrow or Thursday (October 16), which means that we may likely be only hours away from seeing both of these devices in action. Earlier today, we also saw mentions about the next codename, Licorice, and the sculpture makers are now preparing a place for the upcoming figure. According to Forbes’s source, the new Nexus . . .

A rather important moment for Android fans is about to pass. Android L will soon be released and the new, rumored Motorola Nexus 6 is perhaps the hottest topic of the last few weeks. Every day brings some new information and leaks regarding the new phablet device from Google. The latest leaks from the popular benchmark application CPU-Z give us a deeper insight about hardware and software specifications of the device codenamed shamu.
The device will ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, which features a 2.65GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU and Adreno 420 GPU. Combined with 3 GB or RAM, this SoC achieves an admirable score of 3199 points in the app’s benchmark–in other words, more than the iPhone 6 a. . . READ ON »

There are a few things that we as Android geeks look forward to every year. One of these things is undoubtedly the unveiling of new Google Nexus devices. And who’s to blame us? After all, with a Nexus device, you’re generally getting top notch hardware (with the exception of their cameras) at a bargain basement price. But beyond that, you’re also getting the promise of expedient Android version updates to keep up with newer generations of devices—well unless you’re rocking a Galaxy Nexus.

Over the past week, we’ve seen a couple of hints that shed light on what we can expect from the next generation of Nexus devices. This started when we first saw “Flounder” appear in the Chromium issue tracker. And then later that day, courtesy of the Android 4.4.3 changelist, we learned that HTC will be manufacturing this device. Curiously, we also saw “Google Molly” appear in the changelist. And thanks to some sleuth work by XDA Senior Member farmerbb, we can assert that Molly may be a set-top box running the next iteration of Google TV.
Now, two names have appeared in the Chromium Code Review two weeks ago, perhaps indicating the name of two upcoming n. . . READ ON »
