The Nexus 5 in its latest iteration is a superb smartphone, and quite affordable as well. Google typically releases the next generation of its smartphone once a year, and while the Nexus 5 is only a few months old, designers have started to think about what the Nexus 6 should look like. In fact, concepts of flagship smartphones are always a treat to look at.
As we know, the Nexus 5 is only a few months old, and it arrived during Halloween, and along with it, Google also released Android 4.4 KitKat. The Nexus 5 was the first smartphone to feature Android 4.4 KitKat at the time of shipping. The phone is available at a price of $349 for the 16GB version and $399 for the 32GB version, and that too, carrier-unlocked.
This new Nexus 6 concept from 91mobiles brings the curved design reminiscent of the LG G Flex. Until now, there have not been not many manufacturers adopting the curved design, but the curved Nexus 6 concept indeed looks good. However, are a majority of users happy with the curved display? That remains to be seen.
The concept seems to be inspired from two smartphones. The looks are very much similar when compared to the current Nexus 5, and apart from that, it gets the curved display from the LG G Flex which is something that the Nexus 5 doesn’t comes with.
In terms of specs, as per this concept, the Nexus 6 would feature the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 3GHz, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB to 128GB storage options. Along with it, there would be the usual features like support for 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band WiFi and NFC.
Previously, we’ve also seen rumors suggesting that Google might even stop selling Nexus devices by 2015, and the Nexus 5 will be the last Nexus device. For now, it’s too early to comment, but we just hope that Google doesn’t kill the much-loved Nexus brand.
The Nexus 6, when released, will be competing with Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S5. All these smartphones will compete with each other for their claim to be the best smartphone of the year.
Do you like this concept? Is it a yay or nay?
