It is May and the Google I/O event is just around the corner. What can you expect at this event this summer? A Google Nexus 5 or a newer version of Android? We bring you the rumour round up about the next Google device and the next iteration of Android.
The first rumour mill is of course whether Google will be announcing Nexus 5 phone, which is expected to be in partnership with LG (personally, I don’t think given the botched up supply delays by LG on Nexus 4). However, Tech forums are abuzz with specs on the Nexus 5, namely a 5.2 inch OLED display of 1080p resolution. which is also expected to be first ever flexible display on the smartphone.
For your photography needs, Google might just bestow it with a mammoth 16 MP camera which is expected to rival the 13 MP snapper of the Galaxy S4. Powering it will be a Snapdragon 800 processor with its 4 cores ticking at 2.3 GHz offering you a performance which will be out of this world. There will be a 3GB RAM joining hands with it.
Another rumour suggests that the smartphone might just be showcased as a concept and the launch of the device will take place in October. Joining the smartphone will be probably the next generation of the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablet which will be most probably be the Nexus 7.7 and Nexus 11, thus coming with an increased size than the older generation.
An updated Nexus 4 is also expected that the most awaited technology conference. It is expected to come with LTE support and with an inbuilt memory of 32GB. Price tag? A $349 price tag is expected with the current variants getting their prices revised with their prices going south by another $50.
In my personal opinion, updated Nexus 4 seems to be most logical and something should surely be announced in that regards.
Now about what will they run on or the latest version of Android which is expected to be unveiled as well. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to be unveiled but some reports suggest that Google might not launch the version 5.0 and go with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead. Or else, it might just launch both the versions.
Mark your calendars for 15th May. Google might take the occasion to launch a couple of Chromebooks as it has been working on them as well.
The event is just a couple of weeks away we’ll ensure that we bring you the updates about the event as we’ll ensure we update you with that. Every major and minor smartphone and tablet manufacturer will be looking forward to this event and so will be every technology enthusiast.
Any guesses you want to make for what Google might be announcing?
P.S.- An announcement related to the Google Glass might be on its way as well.
