Recently, one of its blog posts Google unveiled its new Nexus 6 smartphone. The last smartphone release of Google was Nexus 5, which hit the market last year this time. We are more than sure that this time also Google is going to surprise us with new and fresh features and usage facilities. So, here are 10 things you need to know about Nexus 5
Let alone the fact that Nexus 6 is bigger than any other Nexus smartphone yet, it is also bigger than iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Nexus 6 has 5.96 inch 1440×2560 display and offers a pixel density of 493ppi. This is larger than Nexus 5.s 5-inch display, about half-inch larger than the iPhone 6 Plus and quarter-inch larger than the 5-7 inch display of Galaxy Note 4. In addition, it is worth to mention that there is one size of Nexus 6 unlike iPhone 6’s two models
Another thing to know is that Nexus 6 is manufactured by Motorola. Though Motorola is owned by Google, Google is going to sell it for nearly $3 billion in the nearest future. However, for now, Nexus 6 is Google’s and Motorola’s product and not Lenovo’s. The thing is that, at first glance, Nexus 6 more looks like Motorola smartphone, rather than other Nexus smartphones.
3. Android 5 Lollipop
Android 5 Lollipop operating system, which was released in June, is going to be used in Nexus 6. This new operating system offers new connectivity feature between Android devices, such as Android TV and Android Wear. In addition, Android Lollipop has improved user interface, new animations, new brighter colors and multi-tasking abilities.
The new Nexus 6 has 13 MP primary camera, featuring optical image stabilization technology, allowing users to take pictures in poorly lighted areas while eliminating motion blur. The smartphone also offer 2 MP secondary camera for video chats, and of course for selfies.
With a larger smartphone comes a larger battery. Nexus 6 has a 3220 mAh battery, which Google says that will provide users with 24 hours of use on a full charge. In addition, in the bow you will also get Moto’s Turbo Charger. This will help you get 6 hours of extra battery usage in 15 minutes. This is perfect for those moments when you have no battery, but there is nowhere to give it a full charge. However, this only works when your battery level is very low, so it’s only for emergency battery situations.
For Nexus 6, Google and Motorola took the design of Moto X, which is a less expensive phone by Motorola, and blown it up to a larger scale. Like Moto X, Nexus 6 has a curved design and a slim bezel, however, unlike Moto X, Nexus 6 has a rubber panel on the back of the device, which allows for an easier grip.
Because of the slim bezel surrounding the 6-inch display, the phone is not so much larger than iPhone 6. iPhone 6 uses a physical home button below the display, however, Nexus 6 uses a button on the screen, so it makes the smartphone slimmer. The Nexus 6 is 6.26 inches tall, 3.24 inches wide and 0.39 inches thick, compared to iPhone 6’s dimensions of 6.22, 3.06, 0.28 respectively.
8. Internal Specs
The Nexus 6 runs on a 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and has 3GB of RAM built in.The phone also features 32GB and 64GB of internal storage space, but there is no option for upgrading as there is no MicroSD card slot. The Nexus 6, like prior Android devices, has NFC technology built in along with Bluetooth 4.1.
A criticism of the Nexus 5, which was manufactured by HTC was its poor sound quality. However, now Google addressed this problem. Motorola’s version of the Nexus has powerful sound quality and Google says that its speakers “deliver high-fidelity sound, making it as great for movies and gaming as it is for doing work.”
10. Carriers, pricing and release dates
The exact dates for pre-orders are not yet clear, however Google promises to start taking pre-orders at the end of the October, before the phones hit store shelves in November. The Nexus 6’s price is $649 for the 32GB model and $699 for the 64GB model. In addition, Nexus 6 is going to be available under contract through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular.
