Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L are expected to all be unveiled on one of these two dates

Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L are expected to all be unveiled on one of these two dates
The other day, we passed along a rumor that HTC engineers have been meeting with their Google counterparts to design the Nexus 9. This would be HTC's first slate since the ill-fated HTC Flyer, and is expected to be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor. According to a report published on Tuesday, a couple of sources have indicated that the 9 inch slate will be unveiled on October 15th or October 16th.

Besides the tablet, there is some speculation that we will see a Motorola Nexus 6 handset also get unwrapped at the same time. Motorola is one of the major Android manufacturers that has yet to stamp its name on a Nexus handset. So far we have seen HTC, Samsung and LG build the stock Android models.

Another item that Android fans are waiting for is the release of Android L. According to the same report, the next build of the Android OS will also be introduced at the same time, although it probably won't be made available until November 1st. On that date, new Nexus models will start shipping with Android L, or existing Nexus devices will be updated to the new build. It is not certain which will happen first.

We have about three weeks, according to the rumors, until the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L will supposedly be introduced. You can keep your fingers tightly crossed until then.

Please start proofreading your articles. "We have about three weeks, according to the rumors, until the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L will supposedly been introduced". Seriously?

I have to say, these 2 new Nexuses have me really excited. The Nexus 9 to me is totally bananas! I can't wait to see what HTC brings to the Nexus table!

Here's hoping to 2880 x 1920 resolution. I'm really loving the 1.5 aspect ratio on a tablet.

We'll eventually get to the point where no OEM will provide SD support.

I have a big grin on my face... after the fact that the iPhone 6 Plus bends... seems like my Nexus 5 may make a new friend soon :) I do not think the leap from Nexus 4 to Nexus 5 was as big as it could have been... but hoping the Nexus 6 is different!

Although many sites are indicating rumors of the next Nexus phone to have a 5.9" screens (Shamu) or even indicating it will have a quad resolution display (1440x2560 pixels) I think the next Nexus just will be a cheaper plastic version of the Motorola X with the same a 5.2" screen size (although maybe IPS LCD instead of the amoled) same processor, battery, etc. Although maybe with an 8MP camera instead of the 13MP in the Moto X. Or maybe just the new (2014) Motorola Moto G but with LTE. (The new Moto G is only 3G capable).

Maybe the next Nexus end being a modified version of the new Moto G with a 1080x1920 (5") screen, an Snapdragon 801 processor and LTE. Although I like more the idea that it will be a cheaper plastic version of the Moto X.

Yeah, I know the Nexus 6 will be different. It will be the Smartphone that put a smile on Nexusians face.

You are never meant to have a yearly upgrade. Upgrade cycles are considered on a 2 year basis. AKA, I'm looking at upgrading my Nexus4 to a 6. Big year to year leaps are very uncommon, especially since we are not in a cycle of massive chip improvement anymore.

I m considering to upgrade my Nexus 4 to N5 or OPO. But I thk I will wait until the Nexus 6 launch. Yup 2 yrs To upgrade existing phone is reasonable. My Nexus 4 is with MultiROM MIUI@CM11M9. Nexus all the way...

Android L: Lion Bar would be a good name. Notice how Google named their Android versions alphabeticlly? (C)upcake, (D)onut, (E)clair, *skip* (J)elly Bean, and (K)itKat.

"Notice how Google named their Android..." Yes, that was their intent. Gingerbread, Honeycomb.....

Yeah, you are right. Google names their Android versions Alphabetically and also after Candies / Sort of
