They were also keen to point out that Motorola’s Turbo Charge feature means that you can get six hours battery life from only 15 minutes of charge, perfect for those of you who have access to one of London’s Solarbox charging points.

Google Nexus 6 availability

Early adopters can pre-order the new smartphone from 29 October, with shipping beginning in November. Customers will be able to choose between a blue or a white version, with 16 or 32 GB of storage.

According to Google Senior Vice President Sundar Pichai, all four major U.S. carriers will be selling the phone, offering two-year contracts and installment plans that will decrease the up-front cost of the new model. Google has convinced Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) to carry the new release, after they didn’t offer the two previous Nexus phones.
