The Google press event is scheduled for October 24 at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT in New York City. Google sent out invites and the event will feature “music movies, games and a special performance by Capital Cities.”

The company tends to stream their live events on YouTube, we will post up the link here once it becomes available. Be sure to come back and check it later. 

With the expectation of Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 release date running high, this press conference seems like a perfect time to reveal the new device. However, it looks like the company will only base around the Google Play portal which has been reinforced by a new range of services before unveiling its new hardware presumably just a few days later.

Although many have expected Google will launch the Nexus 5 along with the Android 4.4 KitKat on October 15, which actually didn't happen, most sources have speculated that the Nexus 5 will be announced toward the end of October or early November. 

It is suggested that the Nexus 5 includes a 5-inch 1080p LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz and a whopping 3GB of RAM. There's also been suggestion it will feature a 16Mp camera made by Nikon.  Meanwhile, Nestle has released via its official Facebook page that Android KitKat will launch in October, adding fuel to that claims that Nexus 5 and the Android 4.4 KitKat update will arrive at that same time.     

It is likely that Google will release Nexus 10 2 alongside Nexus 5. The Nexus 10 2 has most likely been manufactured by Asus. The upcoming Nexus 10 2 is said to have a 10inch screen with 2560 x 1600 resolution and the 16GB model will cost $562.The Nexus 10 2 is also rumored to run on Android 4.4 KitKat OS and is expected to be powered by the latest Snapdragon 800 processor paired with 2GB RAM. The device is expected to have 4G LTE connection, NFC, Low Energy Bluetooth, 8 Megapixel rear camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera with a possibility of MicroSD card slot.
