Google Nexus 6: Release Date and Expected Specs
Google Nexus series is one of the most popular smartphone lineup globally. Last year, Google released Nexus 5 that gained the attention of the whole world of smartphone enthusiasts due to its amazing features and latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. The people are highly anticipating Nexus 6 now with much more polished features and improved operating system. Nexus 6 release date is set to be Q4 this year. Some sources suggest that it will be become the Nexus X after getting released. This article will review some of the expected Google Nexus 6 specs.
Specifications and Features of Nexus 6
The Google’s Nexus 6 is expected to be built from the Korean firm LG, since Google is itself a software powerhouse with little experience of manufacturing elegant smartphones. It will most probably carry the design similar to the 2004 LG flagship G3. Google will choose a phablet like size for Nexus 6 that would be around 5.9-inch. The leaked images from 9to5Google suggest that the size will be 5.92-inch precisely. It will have a quad HD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels that is equivalent to the pixel density of 496 ppi. It must be noted that numerous screen sizes have been rumored for this device.
Google’s Nexus 6 will also be similar to the Samsung Galaxy range of smartphones in terms of processor and memory specifications. It would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM. It will have a 13-MP rear camera similar to that of Huawei Ascend Mate 7 and Moto X. The support for external MicroSD seems doubtful even though the internal storage is only 32GB. 3GB of RAM should be sufficient for running high quality apps, games, and movies.
Operating System Features
It has been rumored that Nexus 6 will run Android 5 Lemon Meringue Pie, instead of Lollipop as has been claimed previously quite often. Practically, this shouldn’t make much difference to the users though. It will also feature a fingerprint sensor.
In short, Nexus 6 specs are expected to be high-end with reasonable price of around $441 as reported by an Indian site Zauba, continuing the trend of Nexus lineup of smartphones.
