Nexus 6-six 2
Google might be getting a little sloppy in their security, at least where leaks about upcoming Nexus devices are concerned. After showing the Nexus like code-name flounder in the Chrome bug tracker last week, overnight the names Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 have shown up in a Chromium Code review.

Take this with a massive grain of salt, but the code review, which was found by SmartDroid.de shows a diff between a new and old version of something called ‘adb_client_socket_browsertest’ with the old version mentioning the Nexus 8, and the new version showing the Nexus 6.



It’s probable that the names are mere place-holders in the code, but could be the real deal. Personally, I have already explained why I don’t think the Nexus 6 will be the name on the next Nexus phone, but this is Google. The new Nexus tablet which is rumoured to be a HTC built 8.9″ device may be coming soon, even as soon as Google IO; but the next Nexus phone will assuredly follow the October/November release schedule that Google has established over the last few years.

What do you think?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Hi. I guess the proof is in the pudding, but I don’t think that they could/would announce a Nexus 6 at Google IO. It would not make sense, as me(a recent Nexus 5 owner, and yes I DO love it, despite one design flaw)and other Nexus owners are the loyal fan base, we are the most often return customers for Google, and if they were gonna release a Nexus 6 next month, or some time soon, they would be mistreating their biggest customers. I don’t believe they would do that, they are too smart. They know how to keep their… Read more »


or just wait till June/July end and order One Plus for $375


After last nights budget it may be best to hang onto my N5 and save some cash as it is already more powerful than I need and I don’t need a tablet that size so whilst interesting not too worried about it. Time to pay the mortgage before the economy dives and I am retrenched.
