Written By:

Google's Nexus range has proved immensely popular across the world. Even to date, the Nexus 5 continues to sell well and has been giving tough competition to recently released Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8).

Rumor has it that Google is planning to update its Nexus range. There have been a range of rumored dates for a new Nexus 6, but so far the dates have come and gone. Aside from the Nexus 6, Google might have planned to release an 8-inch tablet device sometime around June.

The references aren't reliable, though, we cannot rule them out either.
