The tech giant also announced a hard release date for Marshmallow and revealed Chromecast.
The highly-anticipated Google event just took place and several announcements were made there. A lot of the reveals were leaked on the internet in the previous weeks, so there weren’t many surprises. However, there was still plenty of new exciting stuff to make the event memorable.
The biggest reveal at the event was of Nexus 6P, which Google claims will be its most premium phone to date. It improves in almost all respects, and brings a lot of new things to the table. It’s a metal-bodied phone with a 7.3mm thick body, and it comes with a fingerprint sensor called Nexus Imprint. At launch, the pricing of Nexus 6P will begin at $499.
Google realizes that there aren’t a lot of people who would be able to afford Nexus 6P. For those people, Google has introduced Nexus 5X. It comes with a 5.2-inch screen, fingerprint sensor, and USB-C connection. Starting price for 5X will be $379.
Another big announcement coming straight from the event is the release date for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The newest version of Google’s OS will begin to roll out sometime next week.
Aforementioned were the three major announcements made at the event, but there were other revelations as well including a new and improved Chromecast, The Pixel C tablet, and some new options for Project Fi.
