Google have today announced new products joining the illustrious Nexus line.
The Nexus 6, developed by Motorola, and the Nexus 9, built by HTC, shows Google’s ability to switch between their large range of partners to provide a different class of devices in each line.
The Nexus 6 builds on lessons learnt from Motorola’s brilliant Moto X series and comes packed with a Quad HD display and the traditional Motorola bump in the back underneath the 13 megapixel camera, while trying to compete with other phablets such as the Galaxy Note and iPhone 6+.
The Nexus 9 on the other hand is a 8.9″ tablet with a 64-bit processor and folio keyboard being the big selling points. Both the Nexus 6 and 9 come with the upcoming brand-new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system pre-loaded, bringing with it a new visual style among other changes.
Google didn’t stop there, also announcing the Nexus Player. A set-top box co-developed with Asus running Android TV, it is not only a media streamer but also a gaming device, something similar to the Ouya. They aim for gaming to be done with the pad on the TV, with a seamless transition to a phone for more gaming fun.
The Nexus 6 and 9 are set for sale for November here in the UK, while the Nexus Player seems set for the US only, but they are exploring other countries soon.
