What a great year it has been in the tech world. We’ve seen a lot of innovation, a lot of gadgets that came up and given the world a new direction to move in. As 2014 began, the smartphone giants got busy cooking up their big guns and pulled the curtains off one by one to stay in the competition. We’re done seeing 2 flagships from Sony in this year so far, we’ve seen LG’s G3, HTC’s One M8, Motorola’s Moto G, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4, Apple also unveiled it’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that helped it to join the phablet war and we sew a lot of similar products from other smartphone giants like Huawei, Asus etc. The only giant left to jump in the competition was Google, and today, finally, it has jumped in with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
Google Nexus 6
Nexus 6 will be up for pre-order by the end of this month, the device will go on sale from November, 2014. Google is demanding a whopping $649 for a two-year contract, this makes the Nexus 6 a way expensive as compared to the Nexus 5, that only costed around $349 off-contract. Google has also announced that it will be selling the Nexus 6 through all 5 major carriers including AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile and US Cellular. Earlier, Google sold the Nexus 6 either through its Play Store or in collaboration with T-Mobile.
Google Nexus 9
The Nexus 9 also kept the rumor mills running greatly in the recent past. Just a day before Apple goes live with its latest iPad, Google pulled the curtains off from the Nexus 9 today, and as expected, the device is manufactured in collaboration with HTC. Nexus 9 sports a beautiful 8.9-inch display with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels and 281 ppi. At the back, an 8 MP shooter can be found while a 1.6 MP can be found on the front. A 2 GB RAM is placed on-board and the device either has 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage. Nexus 9 is powered up with Nvidia’s Tegra K1 Quad Core CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, the GPU is Kepler DX1. A massive 6700 mAh battery can be found under the hood, and without a doubt, Nexus 9 will be running on Android Lollipop out of the box. Nexus 9 looks quite awesome having a brushed aluminium build. The surprise isn’t big this time as the almost every single thing about the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 surfaced long ago.
Nexus 9 will be up for pre-order from October 17 onward, and it will go on sale from 3rd of November, 2014.
