Nexus 6P was made official today! This year’s Google flagship was officially revealed and you can already pre-order it with the promise that you will receive the device in three to four weeks. 6P is the larger of the two Google smartphones and the first to come out of an association with Chinese manufacturer Huawei. The device will be the first, along with its brother Nexus 5X, to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Nexus 6P – Google’s flagship for 2015
Huawei Nexus 6P is branded as Google’s most recent flagship and it has the specs to prove it. It looks good, has a fully aluminum case – the first nexus device with such a design – and the back side bump that hosts the camera and flash modules. The design reminds us of high-end Huawei devices with its candy-bar shape and slim figure. It has frontal dual speakers and virtual navigation buttons and its 5.7-inch display is protected with Gorilla Glass 4.
