Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s upcoming Nexus 6 smartphone is yet to create a pre-release buzz. The search engine giant has reportedly joined hands with Motorola for its next flagship device. According to the details obtained by TechTastic, Motorola is developing the Nexus 6 under the project Shamu, named after a killer whale.
Nexus 6 to have a 5.2-inch display
If latest reports and benchmarks turn out to be true, the Nexus 6 could give Samsung a run for their money. According to Phone Arena, the new phone sports a 5.2-inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution. That’s the same size as Samsung’s Galaxy S5, but the resolution is on par with the latest LG G3. But since the Nexus 6 will have a 5.2-inch display rather than 5.5-inch for LG G3, its screen will pack more pixels per inch. Notably, LG G3 offers the highest resolution among the smartphones sold in the U.S.
Its specs include 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a quad-code Snapdragon 805 processor with a clock speed of 2.6GHz. The leaked spec sheet also suggests that this device will ship with Google’s upcoming Android L (Lollipop) OS. It lends credibility to the fact that Motorola Shamu could indeed be Nexus 6. Google always ensures that its Nexus phones are the first to get the new Android updates.
Nexus 6 will b equipped with multiple sensors
The smartphone is expected to come with 12MP main camera with 4K UHD video recording capability. It will have a 2MP front shooter. What’s more, leaks suggest that the Nexus 6 will come with sensors that can keep track of your steps and measure atmospheric conditions. However, the latest report contradicts with a previous report from Android Police, which claimed that the device will have a 5.9-inch screen.
There have been a lot of rumors around the release date of the newest Nexus. Christian Post reports that the device is likely to be launched in October or November. In May, German app developers Kierschand and Carsten Knobloch had spotted Nexus 6 in a Chromium Code.
