What to expect from the Google Nexus event

This is Google’s biggest product launch event of the year, so we’re expecting a host of new devices.

The headline products are tipped to be two new smartphones: the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

Nexus 5XThe Nexus 5X

The former is built by LG, and looks set to feature a 5.2in display, a Snapdragon 808 chip, 2GB of RAM, and a fingerprint scanner.

The latter is expected to be manufactured by Huawei, and is likely to land with a 5.7in display, a Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GB of RAM, and a USB-C port.

With those new products in mind, it’s also very likely that we’ll see the launch of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google’s new mobile operating system.

We’re also expecting a revamp to the two-year-old Chromecast, in the form of the Chromecast 2.

The major new addition to the device this time around is expected to be 4K video-streaming support.

Nexus 6PThe Nexus 6P

There’s also talk of a second new Chromecast device, namely the Chromecast Audio.

It’s set to land as a music-streaming alternative to the Chromecast, and could unsettle Sonos’ position as market leader for multiroom audio.

Another rumour suggests we’ll see a 10.2in tablet from the search giant, dubbed the Pixel C.

Unfortunately, there’s very little in the way of leaks about this device, so stay tuned on that front.
