Google has unveiled its next line of Nexus devices, featuring a smartphone, tablet and media player.

The Nexus 6 is a smartphone with a 5.96-inch screen, a 493 ppi AMOLED Quad HD display and a 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation.

Google’s second device is the Nexus 9 tablet, featuring a nine-hour battery life, an 8.9-inch screen, and a 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 2.3Ghz processor.

It also includes an 8MP rear camera as well as a 1.6MP front facing camera.

Along with these two devices, Google has also unveiled a new set-top box, the Nexus Player, which is the first device that runs Android TV.

The Nexus Player has been designed in collaboration with Asus, and allows users to play Android games on their TVs with a controller, as well as serving as a streaming media player for movies, videos and music.

Each new device will also run Google’s mobile operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order on October 29th, while the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player will be available to pre-order on October 17th.

This news comes after the firm revealed that Amazon is its biggest search competitor.

Google has since been trying to build its e-commerce services in a bid to combat consumers going direct to Amazon.
