Apart from the collaboration with HTC to release the NVIDIA Tegra K1 powered Nexus 9, tech giant Google and Motorola’s coalition have allowed both entities to bring forward Nexus 5’s successor, the Nexus 6. Google has shifted away from bringing forth cost-effective products belonging to the Nexus brand as the Nexus 6’s price will start from $650 for the 32 GB model. While the price tag will discourage consumers looking to acquire a flagship device on a budget, the technical specifications of the device warrant that high price tag.
The Nexus 6, codenamed Shamu, possesses a 5.96 inch screen size exuding a resolution of 1440p. In addition to the crisp resolution, the Nexus 6 will be assimilated with Qualcomm’s current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 805. The Snapdragon 805 comes packing with a 2.7 GHz quad core Krait processor and an Adreno 420 GPU; two features that will bulldoze the device’s adversaries. Augmenting the device’s performance with be 3 GB of RAM followed by the device running Google’s latest Android OS right out of the box; the Android L 5.0 operating system.
Smartphone users who have a penchant for capturing captivating images and clips from their devices can add more quality to them thanks to a 13 MP rear shooter and a 2 MP camera situated on the front of the device. The Nexus 6 will be packed with a 3,220 mAh battery and for wireless connectivity, it will possess an 802.11 ac wireless adapter and a LTE Cat6 modem. Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the device is the high price did not feature a microSD slot and will be shipped out in the 32 and 64 GB internal memory models.
