Nexus 6 – the Android Flagship debuts pre-orders on October 29th
The new Nexus was manufactured by Motorola, now owned by Google, and the design details are mostly the same, but a little different. The power and volume buttons are situated a little bit lower than on the Nexus 5, more on the middle-side, and the edges are a bit more curved as well, making it similar to the Moto X edges.
The codenamed Shamu has a strong hardware spec as well:
- 5.96” AMOLED 1440x2560p display at 493ppi
- Quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with Adreno 420 GPU
- 3 GB RAM
- 13 MP primary camera with a 2 MP front snapper
- 3220 mAh battery
- 32/ 64 GB storage.
Shamu will be sold with Android Lollipop of course, and it will be available for pre-order starting October 29th. It will become available in stores sometime in November. Off-contract, Nexus 6 will have a price-tag of $649.99 for the 32 GB version and $699.99 for the 64 GB version (bear in mind there will be no microSD slot available). It will be immediately available on the Google Store, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T Mobile and US Cellular.
Google’s device will be available in Cloud White and Midnight Blue color options. It will have support for Qi wireless charging and access to Motorola Turbo Charging where 15 minutes of charging will last for 6 hours of usage.
It appears that Nexus 6 will not be replacing Nexus 5 completely, as the previous flagship will continue to be sold as a smaller option.
