So, when is your current Nexus getting the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow? Next week, actually. Google announced today that the update will arrive over-the-air (OTA) to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player.
Sorry, Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Nexus 7 (2012) owners.
It’s official – pre-orders for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P open today and will ship later this month.
The LG Nexus 5X is priced at $379 (16GB) and $429 (32GB). The Nexus 6P is priced at $499 (32GB), $549 (64GB), and $649 (128GB).
Google Store is the place to order, but Google did mention that they will have additional retail and carrier partners down the road.

The day has finally arrived! It’s time for Google’s big Nexus and Chromecast event, where we should be officially introduced to the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, a new Chromecast, and a whole bunch more.
We are in San Francisco to attend the event, which kicks off at 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern).
Because this is such a big event, we will have a live blog of the happenings for you below, but Google also has plans to stream the event live for the world to see. Once we have a direct feed for that, we will embed it below along with the live blog.
Ready to join us and finally get the official scoop from Google? (more…)
What’s that, you thought you knew everything about tomorrow’s Google Nexus event? You were wrong. You were wrong because there is always one amazingly unEarthly, fashion somewhere, probably-some-form-of-future-Google-Material-Design-inspired question mark of an object surrounding any live Google event – the shirt. The Matias Duarte shirt.
Try and leak it. Just try.
When it rains, it pours. Now, thanks to what appears to be a complete leak of the upcoming Nexus 5X product page from the Google Store, we basically know all of the device’s specs ahead of its official announcement tomorrow morning. (more…)
