Two new Android devices, the Nexus 4 handset and Nexus 10 tablet will go on sale on 13 November, Google has announced.
The handset, made by manufacturer LG, can also work as a games controller when wirelessly connected to a TV.
Google said that the screen of the new Nexus 10 tablet by Samsung has “the world’s highest resolution display”.
The Nexus 4 smartphone has a new panoramic camera tool called Photo Sphere which Google claims is “unlike any panorama you have ever seen”.
Google says that there are more than 675,000 apps that will be available via its Google Play store. Apple claims that there are over 275,000 apps available for the latest version of iPad.
The firm also announced that it will add music to its Google Play media store in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain on the same day.
New users will be able to upload 20,000 of their existing music tracks to their online accounts for free, and then stream music via the Cloud to any Android device connected to the internet.
Google also announced a refresh of its existing tablet the Nexus 7, which will now offer 3G connectivity on a top-end model. However, all versions of the Nexus 10 are wi-fi only.
The announcement was made after Google scrapped plans for a high-profile event to mark the launches in New York.
The event was cancelled because of the approach of Hurricane Sandy.
