Google Nexus 6 with 6-inch QHD Display, Snapdragon 805 and Android 5.0 Lollipop Launched



The first thing that comes to mind when the Nexus 6 is looked at, is the new Moto X. Deal with it. Google announced the Nexus 6, a large phablet with a huge 6-inch display, and it looks surprisingly (or unsurprisingly if people believed in those leaked pictures) similar to the Moto X. Most importantly, this will run the Android 5.0, the Android Lollipop OS (this too is just announced) and this device takes a step ahead beating every flagship smartphone this year in terms of specs (except for the Galaxy Note 4), as it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

Update: The Nexus 6 is now officially available in India, on the online retailer Flipkart. The pricing is set at Rs. 43999 for 32GB and Rs. 48999 for 64GB.

The first day offers include Free 3 month subscription of Flipkart First, preselected Flipkart eBooks worth Rs 2100 for Free and cashback offers on HDFC and ICICI Bank credit cards.

The large display isn’t with the best pixel density, because although it is a QHD display with the 2560×1440 pixels resolution, the six inch screen keeps it to 493 PPI pixel density, though this too is very good a resolution. The 2.7 GHz quad-core processor (Snapdragon 805) is supported by Adreno 420 GPU, and the Nexus 6 is coming with 32GB and 64GB storage variants, and just like the predecessors, there won’t be any MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The device has 3GB RAM.

The f2.0 lens and 13 megapixel camera on the rear side has optical image stabilization, and Google has added advanced computational photography technology and HDR+ for better capturing using the Google Camera app that comes pre-installed.

It seems that Motorola’s usage of dual front speakers has been getting a great response, thus the Nexus 6 too comes with the Dual front-facing speakers and these too have the same placement and design as in the Moto G 2nd gen (there’s only one speaker below the display in 2nd gen Moto X), and produce stereo sound.

The new Lollipop OS was demonstrated back in June, when Google introduced the Material design for the interface, but the name was limited to Android L, and there were several rumors since then for the name (Lemon Pie, Licorice) and Lollipop, which becomes the official name for the new OS version. The Lollipop OS is said to have a special battery saving mode that extends the battery life by about 90 minutes.

The battery in the Nexus 6 has a capacity of 3220 mAh and the Motorola’s Turbo Charger (that was leaked even with Motorola Droid Turbo) is also going to be bundled, and using that, a user will be able to charge the phone for enough usage for 6 hours by just 15 minutes of charge.

Although looking just like the Moto X, the design of the Nexus 6 looks great in every angle, and why not, we loved even the Moto X very much. The Google Nexus 6 is going to be available on pre-order from October 29th, and will be available in stores beginning in November 2014. The stores and carriers we see listed as of now, include AT&T, Sprint, Best Buy, U.S. Cellular, T-Mobile and the official Google Play Store, where the predecessor Nexus 5 shows out-of-stock.

The pricing listed on the official website, is as follows:
32GB LTE: $649
64GB LTE: $699
