Android L to be released on November 1stWe know that new Nexus devices and Android L are just around the corner, but we haven’t really had any indication yet when exactly they will be releasing – until today. Android Authority has gotten some tips that suggest that the Nexus 9 tablet, with the possibility of a Nexus smartphone, will be announced on either October 15th or 16th. That Nexus smartphone is likely to be the Motorola-manufactured device, allegedly called the Nexus 6 or Nexus X, that we’ve heard so much about, but its screen size appears to still be a matter of contention – either 5.2 or 6-inches.

Along with the news of these devices releasing, the tip also points towards a November 1st release date for the new build of Android, Android L. Initial estimates pegged a Halloween release, so that wasn’t a bad guess at all. Of course, Android L will feature on the devices announced in mid October, but whether this means the devices won’t be shipped until November 1st looks to be the main discussion point among the press.

What do you think about a mid October announcement for the Nexus devices and November 1st release of Android L? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    End of October like last year. Hopefully no bigger then a 5.2 inch. It will have a 64bit processor in it. Hope its called the N64, lol. Nexus 6(4bit)

      The rumors and leaks say that it will come with a SD805 processor which isn’t 64 bit. Hopefully they are wrong and Google is able to get a 808 or 810. It would be kind of stupid to release the Nexus with a 32 bit processor.

        that sucks, great tid bit there, did not know that

  • “Nexus 5L” naming proponent

    Hopefully, it’ll use
    — the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Denver and thus be 64 bit.
    — 20nm
    — ARMv8:Cortex-A53/57
    — Maxwell GPU
    — 5.2″ QuadHD 2560×1440 or WQXGA 2560×1600
    — 64GB internal storage
    — 5000mAh battery (removable like Galaxy Nexus) [improbable]
    — microSDXC with this year’s new standard UHS-II bus @312Mb/s throughput [desirable though admittedly unlikely]
    — 20Mpx rear-facing camera with OIS and 10× optical zoom
    — 8Mpx front-facing camera
    — microUSB 3.1 data/charging port with 5A up to 20V
    — 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ad Wi-Fi

    Named:
    Nexus 5L

      Those would be awesome specs…too bad the Nexus line still kind of shoots for a mid-premium budget phone..sigh..
      With those internals that phone would be at least $600 I think.

      You mise well hang it up. Google is never going back on SD cards or removable batteries. They already said it about SD cards.

  • “Nexus 5L” naming proponent

    Perhaps, there’ll be a Nexus 5L and a Nexus 6?
    5L ➠ 5.2″ screen (either 1080p or 1440p) 2560×1440 576ppi preferred “Quad HD” “2.5K”
    6➠ 5.9″ screen 1440p
