The Google Nexus Event 2015 took place earlier this week and the internet is abuzz with hype for the 2 new Nexus phones now available for pre-order in Google store. Google also introduced a new tablet and Chromecast devices. The video is down below but if you want to know what happened in the Google Nexus Event 2015 even faster, keep reading for the specs of all the devices announced at the event.

The Huawei Nexus 6P is the premium phone for Google Nexus line-up which also marks the first time Google has created a premium phone or even released a “line-up” of nexus phones instead of just one phone to my recollection.
LG Nexus 5X
- 5.2” 1920x1080p AMOLED Display (~423ppi)
- 2700mAh Battery
- Qualcomm SnapDragon 808 CPU
- Adreno 418GPU

- Nexus Print
- USB Type C Fast charging
- Colors Carbon Black, Quartz White, Ice Blue
- $379(16GB)/$429(32GB) – Buy It
The LG Nexus 5X is the affordable phone of the line-up which has a plastic build, a crazy Quartz White color(not sure how popular that’s gonna be), and as you can see from the specs cuts a few corners but dare I say, the cuts are not deep AT ALL. As I said in the video below, Google really doesn’t punish you for taking the cheaper route. The Nexus 5X is a killler phone especially seeing as the camera is almost identical to the Nexus 6P and you still get fast charging. It’s the mid-range phone of dreams. Now hears to hoping for minimal Android Marshmallow bugs on launch day.
Did I mention both phones support 4K 30fps recording? Yes, they do and these other things are worth mentioning about them as well.
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Very little bloatware and it can be uninstalled
- Sold Unlocked w/ 90 day Google Play Music and other service bonuses
- Nexus Protect will give both phones an extra year of warranty with replacements shipped as fast as 1-day depending on where you are
- Project Fi capable
- Deeper Sleep State (DOZE) which improves the battery life by 30%
Pixel C Tablet
- 2560 x 1800(308 PPI)/500 nits brightness/ sRGB
- Nvidia Tegra CPU
- Maxwell X1 GPU
- 3GB RAM
- 4 Mics for clear voice during skype calls and whatnot
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- $149 Bluetooth Keyboard that is also a very strong stand
The Pixel C is a powerful a little tablet as you see from the above specs. This tablet is definitely just as anticipated as the new phones albeit not as much. The Pixel C will be in the Google Store in time for the holidays.
We have an updated Chromecast and a new Chromecast Audio device as well.
- Colors Black, Lemonade, Coral(store exclusive)
- cause Black doesn’t look good behind your TV apparently
- Improved Wifi (this was a big one for me…)
- Chromecast Audio makes it easier to stream your Google Music to your home or car audio system as long as a 3.5mm jack a.k.a AUX port is available.
- Both are $35 – Buy It
I was overjoyed when I heard the new Chromecast would have improved Wifi. This was the #1 killer for me with that device. I’m definitely grabbing one as soon as I can. The Chromecast Audio would be great if I had an aux port in my car. That’s the only place I would see myself using this cause I don’t play much music at home.
That’s about it. Overall, the Nexus Event was not filled with too much fluff. Just pure raw information and straight to the point talks. In other words, it wasn’t that exciting an event but it was really good one!
