The past few months have been a delight for any tech enthusiast because of one simple reason – new smart phones being unveiled by key players like Apple, Samsung, Sony and Motorola. To add an icing on the cake Google will be unveiling a bunch of goodies for its fans on September 29, at a special event in San Francisco.
Here a some of the announcements you might expect at the launch:
Google is once again partnering with LG for the cheaper of its two variants. It is expected to be smaller than its contemporaries sporting a 5.2 inch display.We can’t say anything about the resolution with confidence but rumor has it that it could either be a full HD screen at 423ppi or a Quad HD display with 565ppi.
There is a strong possibility that it will be powered by a Qualcomm processor which could be a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core or newer Snapdragon 820 processor backed by 3GB of RAM. A Fingerprint scanner and USB-C on handset seem to top off the platter.
The Nexus 5x may cram a 2700mAh battery in a 8mm thick body, if rumours are to be believed, finished with a plastic back. The camera should be a Sony 13-megapixel snapper with LG’s laser autofocus. Read more about the Nexus 5x here.
This one is being built by Huawei and is bigger than its contemporaries. A larger screen at 5.7-inch with a 2560 x 1440 resolution for 515ppi is expected. It’s thickness will only be 6.6mm with rear camera quality unknown, all packed in a premium metal build. Powering the Nexus 6 is expected to be a Qualcomm processor, either the Snapdragon 810 or 820.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow
While there is still some confusion over the name, we are certain of a new Chromecast to make an appearance at the event. Leaks suggest the new dongle will change shape for a more rounded look. The hardware should be improved with better Wi-Fi for “Fat Play” plus an ability to pull in feeds, presumably social like Twitter, to be used as a “backdrop” screen saver.
Well, these are the few certain things we can expect from Google tomorrow. Stay tuned as we’ll bring you more updates straight from the event!
