LG Nexus 5X specs revealed ahead of Google event

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 03:27 PM PDT

Time to add another item to the list of things that's been leaked ahead of Google's September 29 event.

A full LG Nexus 5X spec list has leaked out, complete with feature highlights that look like they're intended for use on the 5X's product page. According to the list, the Nexus 5X will offer a 5.2-inch 1920×1080 display with Gorilla Glass 3, 12.3-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, dual flash, and optical image stabilization, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. There's also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

Inside of the Nexus 5X's frame is said to be a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 16/32GB of storage, and a USB Type-C connector. The Nexus 5X's body reportedly measures 147.0mm x 72.6mm x 7.9mm, which is a bit taller and wider but also thinner than the Nexus 5, which measures 137.84mm x 69.17mm x 8.59mm.

There are a couple of details about that spec list that are sure to jump out at folks, namely the 2GB of RAM and the lack of any mention of wireless charging. First up, 2GB of RAM does seem a bit small for a new phone coming out in late 2015, but it seems like the 5X is the mid-range Nexus this year and the Nexus 6P is the flagship. Meanwhile, the lack of wireless charging is puzzling since that feature was in the Nexus 4, 5, and 6.

All will fully be revealed tomorrow at 9:00 AM PT/12:00 PM ET.

Here Are Some Features That Won’t Be Found On The New Nexus’

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 03:19 PM PDT

Nexus5Xrear_render

We've seen some pretty extensive spec lists for both the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P so we have a pretty good idea of what they have to offer and now thanks to some more leaks from Android Police we also know what they will not offer.  There are three features that many of us have come to expect on flagship devices that will not be making their way on the new Nexus smartphones.

The first omission is one we had already suspected due to the build materials of the Nexus 6P and that is wireless charging.  Neither the Nexus 6P nor the Nexus 5X will allow for the convenient charging method.  This is definitely an odd omission as wireless charging has been present in Nexus' for several generations now.

Secondly, the Nexus' will not have microSD card slots.  This omission is much less surprising as Google has been pushing for the adoption of cloud storage for quite some time now.  What is a little odd, however, is that Google has improved the ability of Android to take advantage of expandable storage in Marshmallow so many thought we might see the handy little feature return this year.  It appears that it's just not to be.

Lastly, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will not have optical image stabilizers on their cameras.  Word is that the lack of OIS is tied to the use of the new camera sensor which sport some pretty impressive 1.55┬Ám pixels.  Even with the lack of OIS, this should translate to some decent low light photos.

Is the lack of any of these features a deal breaker for you?

Google’s Pixel C is a 10.2-inch Android Marshmallow tablet with a detachable keyboard and lightbar

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 03:18 PM PDT

Up until this point, the Pixel lineup has been reserved for ChromeOS and laptops, but it looks like Google is looking to shake things up a bit. According to a new report, there's a new device coming down the pipe that will bear the Pixel name, but this one's running Android.

A report published by Android Police says that the new tablet is called the Pixel C and that it will measure in at 10.2 inches. That screen will reportedly feature a pixel per inch count of 308, and a backlight capable of 500 nits. As far as other features go, the Pixel C will boast an NVIDIA X1 quad-core processor under the hood, but what it will be clocked at remains a mystery. It will be paired with a Maxwell GPU. There will be 3GB of RAM, too.

The build quality will still be Pixel-level, so it will still have that premium feel, and the report also suggests that the new Pixel C will look like the 2015 Chromebook Pixel, just without the keyboard attached to it. There will be a keyboard accessory, though. Two of them, in fact. One will be aluminum and the other leather, and they'll charge automatically when they're closed. The Pixel C will also feature a USB Type-C port.

The Pixel lightbar will be present on the back of the tablet and will glow to show the battery life remaining in the device.

As far as pricing goes, the report suggests that it won't be cheap and that it could launch as early as this November. Just one more thing for Google to announce at the company's media event on September 29.

If the Pixel C is real, and based on the rumored specs, would you pick one up?

Nexus Pre-Orders Start Tomorrow! No Nexus 5X For Canada?

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 11:34 AM PDT

Nexus 6P Slide - 5

 

The countdown is on for the Nexus event and a slew of additional details regarding pricing and availability have just surfaced courtesy of Android Police.  Where shall we begin?  Let's start with pricing.  According to the new reports, the Nexus 5X will begin at $379.99 for the 16GB while a 32GB will also be available at a higher cost.  The Nexus 6P will carry a heftier price tag which starts at $499.99 for the 32GB option.  A 64GB and 128GB model will also be available for the 6P but, of course, at a higher cost.  Now all of those amounts are in USD so things will definitely be higher here in Canada.  Given how bad the dollar is right now that price could jump a fair amount but lets hope that Google cuts us a break.

Now in terms of availability, the reports claim that pre-orders will begin in the Google Store  tomorrow after the event.  Google has opted for pre-orders over straight sales in an effort to better handle the stock levels and hopefully create a better buying experience for the customer.  Interestingly, devices will not be sold through carriers (at least in the states) but exclusively through the Google Store.  An interesting change that I'm sure will have some cheering and others complaining.

Now there is one last detail regarding the Nexus 5X to pass on that definitely isn't good for us Canadians.  Canada was not listed as one of the countries that will be able to pre-order the 5X tomorrow.  Was that a mistake or are we really not getting the Nexus 5X at launch?  Cant' say for sure right now but if we hear anything new we'll be sure to let you all know.

No Marshmallow For Nexus 4, 7 (2012) Or 10

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 11:19 AM PDT

No Update

 

We've been treated to a lot of good Nexus news the last few weeks but we may have some bad news to pass your way today.  According to the guys over on Android Police, the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 will not be getting updated past Lollipop.  In other words "No Marshmallow For You!"

 They go on to say that it's not the hardware that is limiting them from updating the devices but rather they do not seem to think its worth the time and energy to update devices that are seemingly obsolete.

Of course, this doesn't mean that these devices can't ever get Marshmallow.  Chances are that some crafty developers will work on bringing these devices up to date and there's even a chance that Google changes their tune down the road.

Google Play Music adding a family plan for up to six members for $14.99 per month

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 10:13 AM PDT

Right now, Google Play Music is one of the strongest options for a streaming music service thanks to its plethora of content and an interface that's easily navigated. One thing it has been missing, though, is a family plan. According to a new report, though, that's changing — and soon.

Based on information gathered by Android Police, Google will be adding a family plan option to its Play Music All Access that will allow up to six different family members to have access to all of the streaming music they can get their hands on for only $14.99 per month. If that pricing pans out, it will automatically put Google Play Music as one of the leading options as far as pricing and music availability is concerned.

Comparing Play Music to Apple Music, for example, the latter option offers six members a family plan for only $14.99 per month as well, so it's clear that Google wanted to compete with Apple right out of the gate. Plus, Spotify currently has different options for its own family plan, where pricing starts at $14.99 per month for two members, and rockets up to $29.99 per month for only five members.

This will be a welcomed addition to Google Play Music. If it does indeed launch, will you sign your family up to it?

Samsung Pay is now available in the U.S. with a free accessory offer

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 09:55 AM PDT

In March of this year, Samsung made its own mobile payments option official with Samsung Pay. Now a few months later, the service is now available in the United States for those with the appropriate devices. Samsung's even throwing in a free accessory offer for good measure.

As hinted at above, you'll need a Samsung-branded Android-based device to take advantage of Samsung Pay in the United States. Specifically, you'll need a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, or a Galaxy Note 5 to use the service. As it stands right now, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular all support the payment option. Verizon Wireless says that it is still evaluating Samsung Pay.

Samsung Pay supports the cards you'd expect, including Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. U.S. Bank, Citi Bank, and Bank of America are on board for supporting the mobile payment option as well.

For owners of the Galaxy Note 5 or the Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung has a limited-time promotion going for you if you sign up for Samsung Pay. If you activate between today, September 28, and October 11 at 11:59PM ET, you'll be able to choose from either a wallet flip cover or a wireless charging pad. To get enrolled in the offer, after you've successfully activated a card, head into the app and select More –> Announcements –> Samsung Pay Activation Offer.

Android Pay has been available for a little while now, and offers support for more devices, but Samsung Pay has a leg up when it comes to terminal support thanks to its Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, which allows it to work at terminals that don't offer NFC support. With that in mind, and if you have a supported device, do you plan on using Samsung Pay?

Prices for the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P leak out, will be available online-only

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 09:21 AM PDT

On Tuesday, September 29, Google is hosting an event where it's expected the company will unveil two new Nexus-branded smartphones: the Nexus 5X from LG and Huawei's Nexus 6P. Leading up to that event, though, we've already seen a plethora of leaks surface out of the rumor mill regarding both devices, including the different colors each model will come in.

Now pricing has allegedly found its way online ahead of an official announcement. Based on reports published recently by Android Police, Google will price the Nexus 5X starting at $379.99, while the starting price for the Nexus 6P will apparently be $499.99. It's worth noting that those prices likely reflect the variant with the least amount of memory available, which means the 16GB Nexus 5X and the 32GB Nexus 6P.

It's expected that the Nexus 5X will be available in a 32GB model as well, while the Nexus 6P will allegedly offer 64GB and 128GB options.

The report also states that sales for the new Nexus smartphones will be online-only, which means there won't be options available within carrier stores this time around, like there was for the Nexus 6.

The pricing looks to be more on the affordable side this time around, as opposed to the price tag attached to the Nexus 6 last year. That'll more than likely be a welcomed return to form from Google, so it will be interesting to see how sales go later this year. As far as pre-orders go, it's believed that Google will launch those tomorrow, September 29, after the handsets are announced. Based on the report, the phones will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, and Ireland to start.

Do you plan on picking up a Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P?

After a whole summer of waiting and beta testing, Samsung Pay is live in the US. It supports all 2015 flagship Samsung devices, but you'll need carrier support too. That might mean a few updates and some more waiting.

Most devices should have a Samsung Pay app in the drawer now. Opening it will prompt you to install an update, which is pulled down from the Samsung app store. In most cases, you'll also need another carrier OTA to enable the payment framework after that.

Support for 100MB APKs on Google Play

Posted: 28 Sep 2015 09:10 AM PDT

Posted by Kobi Glick, Google Play team

Smartphones are powerful devices that can support diverse tasks from graphically intensive games to helping people get work done from anywhere. We understand that developers are challenged with delivering a delightful user experience that maximizes the hardware of the device, while also ensuring that their users can download, install, and open the app as quickly as possible. It's a tough balance to strike, especially when you're targeting diverse global audiences.

To support the growing number of developers who are building richer apps and games on Google Play, we are increasing the APK file size limit to 100MB from 50MB. This means developers can publish APKs up to 100MB in size, and users will see a warning only when the app exceeds the 100MB quota and makes use of Expansion Files. The default update setting for users will continue to be to auto-updating apps over Wi-Fi only, enabling users to access higher quality apps and games while conserving their data usage.

Even though you can make your app bigger, it doesn't always mean you should. Remember to keep in mind the following factors:

  • Mobile data connectivity: Users around the world have varying mobile data connectivity speeds. Particularly in developing countries, many people are coming online with connections slower than those of users in countries like the U.S. and Japan. Users on a slow connection are less likely to install an app or game that is going to take a long time to download.
  • Mobile data caps: Many mobile networks around the world give users a limited number of MB that they can download each month without incurring additional charges. Users are often wary of downloading large files for fear of exceeding their limits.
  • App performance: Mobile devices have limited RAM and storage space. The larger your app or game, the slower it may run, particularly on older devices.
  • Install time: People want to start using your app or game as quickly as possible after tapping the install button. Longer wait times increase the risk they'll give up.

We hope that, in certain circumstances, this file size increase is useful and enables you to build higher quality apps and games that users love.

Nexus 6P Slides Leaked! Full Specs Unveiled

Posted: 27 Sep 2015 10:34 PM PDT

Nexus 6P Slide - 1

We're just over a day away form the big Nexus event and another huge leak has just hit the web.  A series of slides for the Nexus 6P have surfaced and they provide us with more or less everything we need to and want to know.  First off, a run down of the official specs:

  • 5.7″ WQHD AMOLED Display covered by Gorilla Glass 4
  • Snapdragon 810 v2.1
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Internal Storage
  • 12.3MP Camera
  • 8MP Front Facing Camera
  • 3450 mAh Battery
  • Dual Front Facing Speakers
  • USB Type-C Port
  • Finger Print Reader
  • Colors: Aluminum, Graphite, Frost, Gold (although only for Japan for now)
  • 178 g
  • 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

There you have it boys and girls, the official specs for the Nexus 6P.  In addition to providing us with these specs, the leak also gave us some more details regarding the design itself.  According to the slides the Nexus 6P is the first all metal Nexus smartphone.  That statement tells us a couple of things.  First off, the Nexus 6P likely won't sport wireless charging unless they have somehow already adapted Qualcomm's new technology.  Secondly, the Nexus 5X will NOT sport an all metal body but I don't think any of us were really expecting that given what we had seen so far.

So what do you guys think?  Are you digging the Nexus 6P?

Latest Nexus 6P leak offers more spec details ahead of September 29 event

Posted: 27 Sep 2015 05:58 PM PDT

Google's new Nexus phones may only be a couple of days away, but that's still a couple of days that we're without new Nexus hardware. The rumor mill has stepped in to fill that void while we wait.

Several Google presentation slides that show off the Huawei Nexus 6P have leaked, confirming many leaked details about the device and revealing a couple more in the process. In terms of raw specs, this leak claims that the Nexus 6P will have a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display, Snapdragon 810 processor, dual front speakers, USB Type-C, fingerprint sensor, and a 3450mAh battery, all wrapped in a metal unibody design.

nexus6pleakspecs

According to the original presentation that includes speaker notes, the Nexus 6P's screen will be of the AMOLED variety. Those notes also suggest that it'll have 3GB of RAM, 12.3-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras, and a body that measures 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm. To compare, the Nexus 6 and its 5.9-inch display measures 159.3mm x 83.0mm x 10.1mm.

The Nexus 6P is also expected to be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. Color options are said to include Aluminum, Graphite, Frost, and Gold. However, that Gold color will reportedly only be available in Japan, at least initially.

nexus6pleakcolors

One other detail about this leak that's worth noting is that it includes another look at the Nexus 6P's camera bump. There have been some concerns that that camera bump may be pretty large based on leaked images of the Nexus 6P, but in the slide below, the bump doesn't look all that big.

Should these specs hold true, the Nexus 6P ought to be a pretty nice device, offering high-end specs like a high-res AMOLED display and a Snapdragon 810, wrapped in an all-metal body that'll be a first for the Nexus line. Now we just have to wonder: How much will the Nexus 6P cost? Good thing that we've only got about a day and a half left before we find out and then throw that money at our screens.
