Google has just released invitations for a press event happening before the end of this month, and mobile users could see the tech giant announce its latest Nexus handset and a few other new devices. Indeed, the company has already begun sending out invites to various media, basically enticing them to witness the unveiling of some new treats from Google in September 29th of this year.
Google is apparently preparing to introduce a couple of new Nexus handsets within this month. The tech giant is planning to hold an event on September 29th of this year in the city of San Francisco in California, and during this event, Google will be announcing two Nexus devices -- a smaller edition manufactured by LG and a bigger version made by Huawei (as indicated by reports last month).
Samsung was the first to announce it, saying that from now on, it will start rolling out security patches every month for all of its mobile devices that run on the Android mobile operating system. After Samsung’s announcement, Google also made one of its own, introducing a similar monthly update program for its Nexus line of devices. Both companies are planning to deploy their monthly security patches via over the air (OTA) updates.
Here is some good news for owners of Nexus devices. Google has confirmed that the latest iteration of the Android Lollipop mobile operating system is already rolling out for the Nexus 4 smartphones, the Nexus 5 smartphones, and the 2013 Nexus 7 tablets offered by T-Mobile.
For the Nexus 4 smartphone, T-Mobile's web page for the device cites that the Android 5.1 update is being deployed as an over the air (OTA) installation through Wi-Fi as of Monday. This same information is displayed in the carrier's web pages for the Nexus 5 smartphone and the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet, but the updates for these devices will be rolled out through a cellular connection at a later date.
