Google event confirmed for September 29
The fall mobile madness will continue on September 29, as Google is sending out invitations for an event on that date. The shindig will kick off at 9:00 am PT, and according to the invitation, Google will show “some new treats” there.
As for what those treats are, it’s widely expected that Google will show its new Nexus phones. The smaller of the two reportedly comes from LG and features a 5.2-inch display and Snapdragon 808 processor, while the larger phone allegedly comes from Huawei and has a 5.7-inch screen and Snapdragon 810 chipset. Also expected to be shown at the event is some new Chromecast hardware.
While Nexus phones typically come unlocked and free of any carrier branding or apps, we have seen recent Nexus handsets sold by T-Mobile. Considering that, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see T-Mo offer the new LG and Huawei phones. If that’s the case, buying from T-Mobile could be a good way to get a new Nexus phone on EIP or JUMP! On Demand rather than just giving Google hundreds of dollars all at once.
