File-it-Under: 6-inch devices By: D.F.Skin
Without much fanfare Google has officially announced via its blog the much anticipated Nexus 8 smartphone which will come preinstalled with the new version Android,better known as Android 5.0 Lollipop (Android L for short).
If you think the iPhone 6-Plus is a big smartphone,then the Nexus 6 is a behemoth in comparison, with its 6-inch very bright Quad HD display,measuring in at 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution,493 ppi ( the iPhone 6-Plus display sports a 1920 x 1080 resolution,401 ppi).
The design of the smartphone which is built by Motorola almost mimics the 2014 version Motorola X but much inflated. The Nexus 6 has a very sleek compact build,very thick in width,much thicker of course than the iPhone 6-Plus. The overall build of the Nexus 6 is constructed with a " contoured aluminum frame".
Aside from the Nexus beautiful design,the Nexus 6 meat and potatoes of the device is its hardware. Its undeniably a beast as it features a Qualcomm SnapDragon 805 quad-core 2.75GHz processor, 3GB of internal memory,users have the option of choosing between 32 and 64GB of storage, a Adreno 420 GPU. Then we have the battery, a very huge 3229mAh battery. Included is a Motorola Turbo Charger that will give you 6 hours of battery life from just 15-minutes of charge.
One the camera front, the Nexus 6 sports a megapixel rear camera with a f/20 lens with optical image stabilization to capture images in daylight and low light. It uses a advance Computational Photography technology and HDR +.
Consumer preorders will begin on October 29th, a full retail launch will take place in November. The price will retail for $649 off contract thus making it the most costly Nexus smartphone to date. The Nexus 6 will be available with all major carriers that will include Verizon, AT$T, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular.
