Rumor: Nexus 6 and 9 to be revealed tomorrow, on sale November 3


The wait for a new Nexus device may finally be at an end. According to a well placed source, Forbes is reporting that Google will unveil the HTC Nexus 9 alongside the Motorola Nexus 6 tomorrow in a blog post with a pre-order date of Friday, October 17, and a purchase date of November 3.

October 15 or 16 has been rumored in the past as a potential release date for the new Nexus devices, so Forbes‘ predictions could be right on the money. Aside from a reveal and sale date, Forbes is also saying the Nexus 9 will come with an, “8.9-inch 2048×1440 display, weigh 480 grams, have a 64-bit dual-core processor, an Nvidia Kepler GPU and a 8MP rear-facing camera and 3MP front-facing camera.” The Nexus 9 will also come with front-facing Boomsound speakers and a brushed aluminum frame.

As for a price on the Nexus 9, if this rumor pans out expect to see the device launch at $399 with 16GB of expandable storage, or $499 with 32GB of expandable storage with access to LTE.

Forbes‘ article was short on Motorola Nexus 6 rumors, but if they’re right we’ll know more tomorrow. Get your credit cards ready people. Come Friday, you might be putting a several hundred dollar dent in your accounts.

    The overdraft will be worth it. Joking, joking. I am buying it though.

    Plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products they are proven after four years.

    The Nexus 6 will be far better than the iphone 6 plus but nothing like the Galaxy Note 4.

    It’s pretty plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products they are Android nothing else matters.

      I see you replaced your repetitive use of the word “period” at the end of your sentences with the phrase plain and simple.

      If you’re not excited about something why do you feel the need to promote a brand WE ALL KNOW YOU LIKE? I would guess that at the very least 70% or more of registered users on this site already know your preference towards Samsung.

        Also “Monkey Balls” got replaced :(

      Oh, hello again Mr Richard Samsung, we all love our Galaxy Notes agreed, they are fabulous devices, but you should know our Notes are only that good becasue (over all the excelent hardware Note provides) they use the Android OS (Android L on this time), which the system the Nexus brings on its purest form first, then way later we get it on our Sammys. So we have to respect the excelent devices Nexus are.

      Your getting annoying with your Samsung rants.

      • http://www.infotainmentempire.com pekosROB

        I wouldn’t call it Samsung rants because that sounds like he’s mad at Samsung. Let’s call it blind fanboyism non-Samsung rants. lol

      The problem with the Note’s multitasking features is that the Nexus devices don’t have them. Meaning Samsung bolted on a feature on top of Android that doesn’t really work in practice. It doesn’t seem to work with all apps. The way to give an app focus when multitasking isn’t intuitive. It’s like everyone has a Samsung Android device but almost no one uses this feature.

      Recently, CyanogenMod (CM) copied a feature from Paranoid Android (PA) to let the user hold the recent apps button to switch to the last app used. If you think about it, Samsung’s multitask workload makes you go swipe from the side, grab two apps and place them on the correct location of the screen. Then, you have to touch one of the apps to give it focus. Whereas, on the PA/CM way you just hold the recent apps button to quickly switch between two tasks (after opening them from the usual way). I mean, it’s not like drag and drop works on Android anyways. So, why did Samsung try to shoehorn a desktop paradigm in a phone?

    At this point I honestly dont know if jump from my Note 3 to Note 4, or try a different twist of pure Android on the Nexus 6… its a very hard desition since both are excelent devices and offer their own unique pros (personally I really like the waterproff idea of the Sammy devices for example).

      N6 dude!

    • Dwaine

      If you use and like the Note’s pen then buy the Note 4. If not, get the Nexus.

    If anyone actually had ever bothered to go to a shop and put a Samsung tablet besides another tablet, eg, Asus Pad series or even the Acer A series, you would see that Samsung fail to make good tablets. Their interface is so slow and choppy. It jitters along worse that playing the latest games on an old video card. Their design is horrible. They look ugly and feel cheap.

    Yes Samsung make great phones. They leave iPhones for dead! Not as good as HTC but still excellent! Samsung tablets on the other hand are crap!

    • BlazeHN

      Samsung Tablets sux, indeed. And people at my country see Samsung Galaxy Tabs as the standard for non iPad tablets… sadly.

  • M3rc Nate

    Is there ANY mumbling or ANYthing to make you guys (AndroidandMe) believe there is a refresh of the Nexus 10 anywhere in the pipeline? Or is the Nexus 7 & 9 Google’s tablets from this point on?

  • rank

    PLEASE tell me there will be a great 10 inch tablet coming. Been waiting a year for a new Nexus 10 to replace my Xoom but a 8.9 device just seems a bit under expectations even though I was happy to hear this was from HTC.

  • Jens

    Nexus 6 and 9? Too bad, both the wrong size.

    No new device for me this year :-(

    • milind

      Yup. The 6″is 1″ too big for a phone and 9″ is 1″ too small for a large tablet. I have the Nexus 7 and 2 Nexus 10. I might sell one of them and get the N9. But I’d have preferred a refreshed 10″ tablet.
