Google’s new Nexus lineup could be unveiled before the end of the month. According to CNET, the search giant is prepping for a big event on September 29 in San Francisco where two new stock Android phones from LG and Huawei will be announced.

That’s over a month earlier that last year’s Nexus 6, which launched in early November 2015. However, it’s unclear if Google plans to release the new devices this month or simply show them off. Either way September 29 can’t come soon enough.

Based on countless rumors and leaks we’re expecting LG’s new Nexus to pack a 5.2-inch display with mid-range specs, including a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 1080p resolution, a 2700mAh battery and a fingerprint reader. The result should be an affordable stock Android phone with impressive battery life.

Meanwhile, Huawei’s rumored Nexus phablet could offer a significantly bigger display with a Quad HD resolution, a cutting-edge Snapdragon processor, a fingerprint reader and an all-metal design. This sounds like more of a high-end device, which suggests it won’t be particularly cheap.

Of course both devices should run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, making them the two first phones to offer Google’s latest mobile software. Exact pricing and launch plans are still a mystery, but it looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out.
