Skipping the usual fanfare of Apple’s over-the-top product releases, Google has released its own new line-up of Nexus devices. Built in collaboration with some of the biggest tech manufacturers, the Nexus range aims to show off the best of the Android operating system. See our list below of the 4 new Nexus devices just released by Google:

1. Motorola Nexus 6 Smartphone

We had heard a lot about a 6 inch phablet in development by Motorola, and now the rumours have proven to be true! The Nexus 6 is one of the largest smartphones on the market, boasting a 5.96 inch Quad HD screen. Form-wise the phone is in many ways a scaled up version of the new Moto X, as both devices were built with presumably the same design philosophy.  The Nexus 6 features a massive 13MP camera, as well as the latest in high-end hardware, such as the Qualcomm 805 Snapdragon CPU.

2. HTC Nexus 9 Tablet

Another widely rumoured device was the Nexus 9. Built to compete with other high end tablets such as the iPad and the Surface Pro, the new device has a thin, yet high-quality metal construction. In order to position the device better for productivity users, the screen has been altered to a 4:3 resolution, and a new detachable keyboard peripheral has been made to accompany the tablet.

3. Asus Nexus Player

The biggest surprise of last night’s reveal was the announcement of the Nexus Player. This device takes the form of a video streaming and gaming hub, which works as part of a smart TV setup. It will be one of the first devices to make use of the new Android TV software which enables it to sync with the Google Play Store. The base level of the device ships with a hub station and remote, while a gaming controller can be bought separately.

4. Android L (Lollipop)

These new devices will be the first in the world to run the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. Dubbed Android ‘L’ or Android ‘Lollipop’, the software is being heralded by Google as its most important update yet. The largest change for most users will be the new Material Design graphical language, which creates an optical illusion of depth within apps. In addition, the software has improved voice controls, power management, and a multitude of other new features.
