Motorola Nexus 6 officially unveiled, looks poised to challenge Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus
Google finally took the wraps off its new Nexus 6 smartphone made in collaboration with Motorola, ready to launch soon with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop on board.
The Motorola Nexus 6 has leaked on several occasions ahead of its big debut, but now we finally have the official scoop. The device launches as the first phablet from Google, boasting high-end specs and features all around. At the same time, it could also be the beginning of a ore collaboration, as it comes as the first Nexus device from Motorola.
Nexus 6 Specs
The new Nexus 6 boasts a massive 5.96-inch display with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, ready to give Apple's iPhone 6 Plus a run for its money. Under the hood, the handset rocks a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, paired with Adreno 420 graphics. Google has yet to detail how much RAM it will pack, but it's safe to assume it will have at least 2GB.
Other specs of the new Motorola Nexus 6 include 16GB or 32GB of internal storage capacity, a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, optical image stabilization (OIS), dual LED ring flash, and 4K video recording, and a 2-megapixel front shooter for selfies and video chats.
Another impressive aspect of the Nexus 6 lies in the battery department, as the smartphone comes with a large 3,200 mAh battery, Qi wireless charging, as well as Motorola's new Turbo Charge feature that delivers hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charge. The Nexus 6 is also water resistant, but Google has yet to detail the rating.
In terms of design, as previously rumored, the new Nexus 6 basically looks like a larger Moto X, with a stylish aluminum frame contouring its body.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
On the software side, the Motorola Nexus 6 will be among the very first devices to launch with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop on board out of the box, which offers notable performance enhancements, neat optimizations, visual enhancements, and Google's new Material Design, among others.
Google's new Motorola Nexus 6 will go up for pre-order in late October and will hit stores in November. The handset will be available unlocked from the Google Play Store, as well as subsidized on monthly contracts or installment plans through carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular. Availability will vary depending on carrier.
