Google took to its official Developer portal earlier today to publish the factory images for its February security update for the Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. The upgrade transports a patch for the extremely frustrating bug which drops calls when certain applications are opened in the multitasking view, in addition to a plethora of stability improvements and speed optimizations.
The LG Nexus 5 may not be the latest and greatest Nexus anymore, but it’s still a solid device. If you thought it was cheap before you will love the $189.99 price for the 32GB version it’s selling for on Ebay.
Google has published the factory images for the long-awaited Android 6.0.1 update for the Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player.

Yesterday, T-Mobile announced a series of OTA’s for the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9. The sole purpose of these updates are to fix a number of security and bug-related issues that were unearthed in the Android operating system. Now, Google has released the factory images for the upgrades, which are available to download and install directly from the search engine giant’s Developer Platform.
Another Nexus device will be produced by LG, the company’s third to be exact, and the handset could be coming as soon as September 29 with its price set at $400. Being that the aforementioned date is only a few weeks away, leaks are bound to happen more frequently. Specifications for the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) have already been shared, showing that Google will start this round of Nexus devices with a phone that is not exactly a flagship but still has pretty good components. Consumers looking for that high-end Nexus phone will have to wait for a possible beast from Huawei.
Hit the break to see the image.
We’ve been hearing tons of rumors lately about Google’s upcoming lineup of Nexus smartphones, and it looks like we’ll finally see them officially unveiled in late September. The company is set to hold an event in San Francisco on September 29th, just in time for the holidays. Read more
Two Nexus devices are expected to be released by the end of the year. Both LG and Huawei are apparently in charge of the hardware launching alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It would be LG’s third time manufacturing a Nexus device and this one could arrive as soon as September 29. Today, alleged specifications regarding the LG-made Nexus phone, likely known (again) as the Nexus 5, were detailed.
Nexus devices typically launch in November, a time that coincides with the release of a new version of Android. This year, however, the wait may not be so long. A report from Korean media outlet MK Post claims that a Nexus device from LG will launch on September 29. What else does this mean? Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming very soon.
The information regarding the approaching release date apparently comes from the same source that was correct about the Nexus 5’s arrival in 2014. While we cannot confirm the source’s validity, having a proven track record is certainly beneficial.
Huawei’s alleged Nexus device was not mentioned in the report.
