Google announces Motorola-made Nexus 6 smartphone

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Without any sort of special event, Google has announced the Motorola-made Nexus 6 smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop. The phone features a 6" 2560 x 1440 pixel display, which gives it a pixel density of 496ppi.

The premium display is backed up by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.65GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU inside and 3GB of RAM. At the back, there's a 13MP f/2.0 camera with dual-LED flash. Internal storage is either 32GB or 64GB, but there's no microSD card slot.

At the front, there are two stereo speakers and a 2MP front-facing camera.

The battery is a 3,220mAh unit, which isn't user replaceable. However, it sports Turbo Charging, which allows you to get up to 6 hours of use from the Nexus 6 with only 15 minutes of charging. Google promises the phone can make it through 24 hours of usage without problems.

Pre-orders for the Motorola Nexus 6 start on October 29 with shipments scheduled to start sometime in November. You can buy the 32GB, SIM-free version of the phone in Midnight Blue or Cloud White from the Google Play Store for $649.

Although not officially confirmed, in Europe the 32GB and 64GB models are expected to retail for €569 and €649, respectively.

Google won't stop selling the LG Nexus 5, for those worried they will be left without a more compact Nexus smartphone. Its pricing remains unchanged, $329 for the 16GB and $399 for the 64GB model. The Nexus 5 will also receive Android 5.0 Lollipop, so you won't be missing out on the latest Google has to offer
