Finally it will be Google’s turn to announce its new range of products and services as the company has a major event happening on the 29thof September. While it is not confirmed, but Google is expected to launch new Nexus smartphones, a new updated Chromecast and the previously announced Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Here are some of the expected announcements that we might hear from tomorrow’s event.

Last year Google chose Motorola to make a large 5.9-inch phablet as the Nexus 6 which didn’t see a lot of popularity due to the humongous size. This year we might see more than one Nexus smartphone as Google is expected to bring in the Nexus 5X and the 6P which will be made by LG and Huawei respectively. Both the smartphones will sport a fingerprint scanner at the back as well as a USB Type-C port both of which are to be supported natively by the Android Marshmallow update

The Nexus 5X is expected to come with a Snapdragon 808 six-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB and 32GB storage variants, a 12MP camera and a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p display. While the Nexus 6P could be the first ever Nexus smartphone that will have a fully metal body. On the inside there will be a the new revision of the Snapdragon 810 octa-core version which will hopefully not heat as much, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions, 12MP rear camera, and a 5.7-inch 2K display.
