It is now official; the new Nexus device has been unveiled along with its new Android 5.0 Lollipop software. The Nexus 6 is the latest smartphone that Google has released. The announcement has been posted on Google’s official blog, saying the following: “we work with hardware partners to build Nexus devices to help push the boundaries of what’s possible. Nexus devices also serve as a reference for the ecosystem as they develop on our newest release.”
As it was already expected, the new Nexus device from Google will look like an enlarged Moto X 2014. It will have a metallic trim and curved back panel, an over – sized camera lens and a ring flash. The new smartphone will keep the rounded glass from its predecessor – the Nexus 4. Most importantly it will be water resistant. On the front it will have stereo speakers.
Rumors say that the new Nexus 6 is only a larger Moto X 2014. It was confirmed from Google that the 5.96 – inch AMOLED screen will be filled with new icons such as, Google Play Music, Dialer, Messenger, Play Store and a Google Now bar.
They made the announcement, but it seems that we will have to wait for a bit longer. According to some statements, the smartphone will be available in November. As we mentioned above, the device will come with the new Android 5.0 Lollipop.
When it comes to the price, it has been said that the new Nexus 6 will start with an amazing price of $649. Surprised? Yes, we were too. It seems that we won’t be seeing cheap Nexuses anymore. But everyone was expecting this, right? Since the Nexus 6 offers two versions of 32 / 64 GB and a large QHD display, a small price won’t be acceptable.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop is the operating system that will run the new Nexus 6 and all the devices will be receiving updates for the next 18 months. When it comes to the specs, we know that Google will pack the best ones to make the device stunning. The Nexus 6 will be powered by a quad – core Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.7 GHz, Adreno 420 GUP. The powerful processor will run with 3 GB of RAM and it will have a powerful 13 MP camera. The battery will be very powerful as well ( 3,220 mAh).
This device has a lot of things in common with the Moto X 2014 especially the aluminum bazels and the camera placement. But we must all agree that the design is very sophisticated and the fans will be amazed. Google never ceases to amaze us with their incredible devices.
But not only Google, Motorolla has released their statement as well, since they were involved in the Nexus 6’s production: “At Motorola we’ve been big believers in Android since the very beginning. We love its power, its flexibility, and how it gives you the freedom to choose the experience that’s right for you. In fact, the only thing that would be better than Android is…more Android. That’s why we’re so excited to have been able to work with Google’s Android team to bring you the new Nexus 6, featuring Android 5.0 Lollipop. With Nexus 6, we’ve worked with Google to bring you a bigger phone with more everything. More screen. More speed. More power. And, it’s the best Android experience ever.”
