The wait is over now. Google has finally released the highly rumored Motorola Nexus 6. The device appears to be a bigger version of the recently announced Moto X.
The new Nexus comes with an amazing set of specification, as well as a hefty price tag when compared with the previous Nexus devices.
The handset is the first smartphone to come with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and features a 5.96-inch QHD AMOLED display boasting a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels with a 493 ppi pixel density and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The handset is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.7GHz, Adreno 420 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. Unlike previous versions, the new Nexus 6 comes with 32 and 64GB of internal storage on board.
Motorola Nexus 6 measures 82.98 x 159.26 x 10.06 mm, and weighs 184 grams. On the rear, the handset features a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization, f2.0 aperture, HDR+ and 4K video recording capabilities, as well as a 2MP front-facing camera. To make sure there’s enough juice for the handset, there’s a massive 3,220 mAh battery.
The handset will be up for pre-order at the Google Play Store in late-October with price starting from $649. The handset comes in two color options: Midnight Blue or Cloud White. Google says it will be available from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon in the US. Carrier pricing will be revealed at a later date. Additionally, the Nexus 6 will head to 28 countries across Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America starting later this year, and through the first quarter of 2015.
