Video: Six years of Nexus - A Google phone history

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:27:43 +0000

(image)

As the Pixel phone announcement draws near, it seems that, if not going away entirely, Google's Nexus brand will at the very least be undergoing some major changes. Google intends to heavily market its Pixel phones if the last week is any indicator, meaning there really won't be much room for the Nexus phone program to exist in the same way it has in the last few years. Nexus may live on, but it will undoubtedly be in a capacity different from the more aspirational efforts we've seen Google make with it in devices like the Nexus 6, 5X, and 6P.

T-Mobile And Sprint Release Oddly Coincidental "Android Security" Updates To One S And Nexus S - Heartbleed Related?

Wed, 07 May 2014 21:31:06 +0000

(image)

Both Sprint and T-Mobile announced OTA updates for two long-forgotten handsets today stuck on Android 4.1.1 - the Samsung Nexus S and the HTC One S, respectively (that is, the Sprint Nexus S and the T-Mobile One S).

(image)

Both updates are described merely as containing security enhancements, but given that Android 4.1.1 is the only known OS version potentially vulnerable to the now-infamous heartbleed exploit, it's fairly easy to determine what this is all about (HTC's site actually confirms as much).

The History Of Nexus Phones In 3 Seconds

Sat, 02 Nov 2013 20:58:00 +0000

(image) Google kicked off the Nexus program back in early 2010 with the Nexus One. It was a fine phone for the time, but it's vastly different than the most recent iterations of the Nexus flagship. That's illustrated quite well by this quick GIF.

(image)

You're really reminded of how small a 3.7-inch screen is as you watch the N1 morph into the much larger phones. It's also interesting to note that the overall aesthetic of the phone silhouette hasn't really changed much since the Nexus S.

With CM10, the CyanogenMod team started pushing out M-Series releases, which are designed to be a more stable alternative to nightly builds. In fact, CM cites these builds as being "mostly stable and ready for everyday use."

The Motorola XOOM And Nexus S Will Almost Definitely Not Receive Android 4.2

Tue, 13 Nov 2012 18:24:00 +0000

(image)

With all the excitement of Nexus availability and the Android 4.2 source code being pushed into AOSP this morning, one little statement by Android developer JBQ regarding 4.2 device support in the AOSP announcement was easy to overlook.

-There is no support for 4.2 on Nexus S and Xoom. Those devices should continue using 4.1.2.

Yep, that (very, very likely - it's intentionally vague) means exactly what you think it does: it's the end of the road for software updates on the Nexus S and Motorola XOOM (and yes, that means all variants).

Tue, 18 Sep 2012 20:12:00 +0000

(image)

Back in July, Google made available the stock Jelly Bean images for a couple of the Nexus S variants, as well as the GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7. Today, the build for the global Nexus S (soja) got updated to Android 4.1.1 (JRO03L), and the Nexus S 4G (sojas) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 image (JRO03R) made its way to Google's image download site, as well.

(image)

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Jelly Bean showing up for the Korean version of the Nexus S (or the LTE Galaxy Nexii, for that matter).

Android Phones Will Power NASA's Future Nanosatellites, Going Where No Nexus Has Gone Before

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 12:23:04 +0000

(image) After the successful landing of NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars this month, space exploration is once again at the forefront of everyone's minds. While the rover goes about its mission on the red planet, there are plenty of other exciting projects happening closer to home.

One of those projects is the CubeSat Launch initiative (CSLI), in which nanosatellites built by teams across the United States are hitching a ride into orbit on rockets planned for upcoming launches.

In a post to Google's Android Building group today, Jean-Baptiste Queru once again acted as the bearer of good tidings for developers and tweakers everywhere, announcing that "a new set of proprietary binaries for Jelly Bean are available."

The new batch of binaries includes those of the Nexus S and Nexus S 4G (Crespo and Crespo4G respectively), the latter of which we just recently saw added into the AOSP fold.

Just like before, the update can be downloaded straight from Google's servers, though Google has indicated that the OTA should be rolling out to Nexus S phones on "a number of carriers," meaning the wait for an automatic update prompt shouldn't be long.

The Nexus S release specifically wasn't compatible with the AT&T version (i9020A sojua), but an image for i9020A was promised at a later date. Additionally, builds for the Nexus S 4G on Sprint and other variants as well as the Verizion Galaxy Nexus were to follow.

[Updated] Official Android 4.0.4 (IMM76D) Update Comes To The Nexus S - Here's How To Get It Right Now [Download]

Wed, 28 Mar 2012 18:14:47 +0000

(image) An new official update IMM76 (Android 4.0.4) is poised to roll out for the Nexus S. The update file, which weighs 18MB, can be downloaded directly from Google's servers and applied only over stock IML74K (Android 4.0.3):

post-build=google/soju/crespo:4.0.4/IMM76D/299849:user/release-keys
post-timestamp=1332707372
pre-build=google/soju/crespo:4.0.3/IML74K/239410:user/release-keys
pre-device=crespo

It has been shown to work on the i9023 variant, and we're currently trying to figure out whether it works on different flavors of the i9020. If you have the Nexus S 4G on Sprint, sorry, this update is definitely not for you - you have access to 4.0.4 already anyway.

Android 4.0 Update For The Nexus S To Resume 'In The Next Few Weeks'?

Fri, 16 Mar 2012 15:53:00 +0000

(image)

I know what all you non-Nexus S owners are thinking: wait, didn't the ICS update roll out to the NS back in December? In fact, it did. But there was some sort of battery drain issue, so Google had to stop the update. And that's the last semi-official thing we heard about it.

Needless to say, Nexus S owners are pissed.

Today, however, Engadget has received "confirmation" from a "trusted source" that the ICS update is set to begin rolling out to the NS (again) and the NS4G "in the next few weeks." While it shouldn't take this long for El Goog to push an update to a Nexus-branded device, it's nice to hear some movement is finally being made on this front.
