Google's next big thing: Android L, Nexus 9, Wear 2.0 and more might arrive on October 15th
Let’s look at all these new launches in a bit more detail. First, Google unveiled Android L at I/O this summer to give developers an early look and time to prepare their apps for both the new ART runtime (64-bit, finally), and the new Material Design language. There’s nothing we don’t know about the operating system except for its roll-out time.
October 15th might be a big day for Google: expect Nexus 9, Android Wear 2.0, and Android TVNext, the Nexus 9 is expected to be a 9-inch tablet made by HTC and featuring the Nvidia Tegra K1 chip, a piece of silicon that claims it’s among the best (if not the best) mobile solutions for gamers. The Nexus 9 is likely to feature a high-res display and the latest leaks portray it with a matte metal finish similar to that of the Nexus 5.
Further on the list are Android Wear 2.0. The wearable platform might get a boost in functionality and an additional level of polish, and we’re curious to see how Google will react with this to Apple’s own Watch OS. Then, finally, Android TV, a project that is nothing but a hobby for Google at the moment, might finally see a shake-up on October 15th.
And what about the Nexus 6, aka Nexus X, or Motorola ‘Shamu’? Well, that one is likely to come in early November, according to this leak.
