Google’s new Android ads hint new Nexus devices are close

Google has rolled out three new adverts for its Android operating system, hinting that new Nexus devices are due any day now.

We’re expecting the Nexus 9 tablet to touch down as soon as tomorrow, with the Nexus 6 smartphone following soon after. And these ads hint that the rumours may have been on the money…

The first shows a queue of people waiting at a bus stop. One of their phones is ringing. A couple of them check their small mobiles, and see it isn’t them. Then the smallest person there whips out a whopping great smartphone and has a chat.


Could this hint that the Nexus 6 does indeed boast a massive 6-inch screen, as the rumours say?

The second ad gives less away. It sees a bunch of figures dancing to 90s r’n’b smash This Is How We Do It, while the third sees similar figures in a Winnebago, nodding their heads to Whoomp There It Is.


The slogans are interesting too. The first ad has the legend: “All kinds of phones for all kinds of folks.” All three have the tagline: “Be together. Not the same.”

Again, this could refer to the slightly unconventional sizes Google is going for with its new Nexus devices.

The Nexus 9 is rumoured to be made by HTC – which hasn’t made a slate PC since 2011’s ill-fated HTC Flyer – and to boast an 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2,048×1,440 pixels.

We’re also expecting news of Android L alongside these two new devices, so stay tuned.
