Nexus 6 – Google’s flagship high-end phone!

Earlier today Google released their new Nexus branded devices. They released their Nexus 6 along with the Nexus 9 tablet and the first device with Android TV, the Nexus Player! The next update to the Android operating system, Android “L” has been confirmed to be “Lollipop”.

The Nexus 6 is nothing like it’s predecessors. Nexus devices have been known to have not the greatest specs but, Be really in-expensive.

This years’ Nexus phone is not cheap nor it’s low end. As rumored, The next Nexus is going to be made by Motorola with a design like the new Moto X. It’s rocking an 16:9, 9:16; 5.96″  2560×1440 QHD AMOLED display with a pixel density of 493 ppi with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 display! The display is of-course not the only items that has been upgraded; To cut back on the cost the Nexus 5 was not the best device for taking pictures but, This one is. With a 13 Megapixel rear facing camera with optical image stabilization and a Dual LED rind flash. The camera can capture of-course 13 megapixel photos but, It can also record 4K video at 30fps. The Front camera is not that impressive as most phones with a 2 megapixel senser and the ability to do HD video conferencing. The biggest change is the processor, Which is now rocks aQualcomm Snapdragon 805 with a Adreno 420 GPU! It also has what should be a standard in all phones is Dual front-facing speakers. Now since more and more U.S. carriers are moving towards non-unlimited data plans so, Something that is really useful is the 802.11ac 2×2 (MIMO), Bluetooth 4.1 and, NFC chips.
