Your Facebook news feed is perhaps flooded with information about Google’s new device lineup by now, but amid all of that, you may easily have missed some of it. So, here’s a complete recap of what Google did at its Nexus event on 29th of September.

Google Nexus Lineup

Nexus 6P

The Nexus 6P is made by Huawei and looks like the successor to the Nexus 6. It comes with a slightly smaller display size and a ton of improvements over the last phone. While initially, it was rumored that the phone will run on the Snapdragon 820 SoC from Qualcomm, turns out, the Snapdragon 810 is what it runs on. In addition, the device has a full metal build, which is a first for the Nexus series. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back and 2K display on the front. However, the feature that Google is boasting is the new camera that comes with an all new Sony sensor.

With the Chromecast 2, the app for the device has also been updated. It is now simpler and more intuitive. Google said, “We’ve also updated the Chromecast app to make it easier for you to find great things to watch or to play, across the thousands of apps that work with Chromecast—whether you feel like browsing or want to search for a specific TV show or movie. For Cast-enabled apps that aren’t already on your phone, we’ll suggest one for you”.
