We’ve been hearing about Google’s upcoming Pixel smartphones for quite some time, but until just recently, we hadn’t had a good look at what each device actually looked like. Over the past two days, Evan Blass has leaked out two new renders of the Pixel and the Pixel XL, giving us a better idea of what to expect. Both phones are going to look pretty much the same with nothing more than a half-inch of screen separating them.

We’ve learned from multiple sources that Google plans to launch its forthcoming Andromeda Android/Chrome OS hybrid OS on two devices: a Huawei Nexus tablet and a “convertible laptop”. The latter device was just reported on by Android Police, and we can independently confirm that this device is planned. Our sources say, however, that a Huawei Nexus — yes, a Nexus — is also planned…

Google has new hardware to debut at its October 4th event, but as we’ve learned recently the most important part of the event may not lie in hardware, but in software. We now know that Google’s long-rumored Android/Chrome OS hybrid operating system is internally called “Andromeda,” but we’ve been doing some digging of our own over the last couple of days to see if we could learn more.

We don’t know if it will ever formally come to the almost two-year-old tablet, but we’ve heard that Google is testing the yet-to-be announced hybrid OS on the HTC-made Nexus 9…

If you’re a Nexus 5X owner experiencing constant rebooting after installing an OTA update to Android 7.0 Nougat, you’re not alone. The issue has been reported by several people on the Google Product Forums, but thankfully, a Googler named Orrin has at least replied confirming that it’s a problem…

Google’s Nexus Launcher was leaked last month giving us a sneak peak of what Google has in store for its 2016 Nexus launch. At the time, the Nexus Launcher name made sense, but in the weeks since we’ve heard a lot of new information about Google’s upcoming devices and odds are, the company won’t keep the Nexus branding…

Just a couple of weeks ago Google revealed that a Project Fi exclusive feature would be making its way to all Nexus devices. Wi-Fi Assistant allows users to automatically connect to public Wi-Fi networks which Google has determined are fast and secure, even adding a layer of security through a VPN. Now that functionality is rolling out to all Nexus devices, Project Fi or not, in North America and Europe.

Rumors surrounding Google’s yet-to-be-announced 2016 Nexus phones have been pretty all over the place. We’ve heard a lot, but not all of it has made sense. One early rumor though was that Google was actually planning to drop the Nexus brand on these devices, instead releasing a Pixel device. Since the original report we haven’t heard a ton regarding the use of that name, but tonight Android Police has dropped a bomb on us; Google’s upcoming smartphones will be called the Pixel and the Pixel XL.

Following the release of Android Nougat, developers are hard at work getting the new OS on older hardware. We’ve already seen builds go live for the officially unsupported Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013, and now we’ve got even more devices running on N including the Nexus 4, OnePlus One, multiple Samsung tablets, and the Raspberry Pi 3…

Google announced several days ago that Android 7.0 Nougat is coming over-the-air to several Nexus devices in the coming days and weeks, but if you’re a die-hard that likes to always have the latest from Google, you know that could mean a pretty decent wait depending on your device. Thankfully, you can install the over-the-air (OTA) update manually now by following our quick guide…

This week has been filled with lots of Android 7.0 Nougat-y goodness, and the train isn’t showing any sign of stopping. Google started the rollout of Android Nougat earlier this week, began distributing factory images for the update on Tuesday, and an unofficial build of Nougat popped up for the Nexus 5 yesterday. Now, we have another. How does an unofficial ROM of Android Nougat for the Nexus 7 (2013) sound?…

When Google began rolling out Android Nougat earlier this week — and began distributing factory images for the update just yesterday — one long-supported device was notably left out: the Nexus 5. Android developers across the web saw an opportunity with this omission, though, and have already begun distributing early builds of Android 7.0 Nougat for the LG-made device…

It was only yesterday that Google announced the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat, and it was only today that factory images started popping up. Now, the web is already abuzz with speculation about when the next version of Android, presumably Android 7.1, will be released, and what it will bring.

By way of website & app analytics, info from the well-informed David Ruddock, and speculation from guy-who-leaked-the-Nexus-Launcher Nate Benis, it seems that 7.1 might be coming soon — alongside the new Nexus phones — and it might be the first regular maintenance release for Android Nougat…
